Warner To Stay in Arizona

One of the main stories this off-season I have decided to follow was that of Kurt Warner and his future with Arizona after leading them to the Super Bowl in the 2008 season. So when I seen that Warner had re-signed with the Cardinals on a two-year $23 Million contract I had to write about this and talk about what I thought about this deal.

Here are some details on Warners contract.

The deal includes a $15 million signing bonus. Combined with a $4 million salary for the first year of the contract, $19 million is guaranteed. Warner does believe this is his final NFL contract.

Warner had knew he wanted to be in Arizona even when he was visiting the 49ers. Warner said: “I told my wife probably 45 minutes into it that I just felt God say, ‘You’re supposed to be in Arizona,”‘ Warner said, “and I told her that. She tried to tell me to stay open, but He just continued to confirm it.”

Warner said the 49ers made him an offer that was larger than the one he agreed to in Arizona. But on the flight back from San Francisco, he said he called his agent, Mark Bartelstein, and told him to do what was necessary to get the Cardinals deal done.

Warner also cares very much about his fellow members of Arizona here is what I found to prove how much he really loves his team.

Earlier in the negotiations, Warner had offered to give $1 million per year of his contract toward a new deal for Boldin, but that provision wasn’t in the final agreement. Boldin has asked to be traded because he believes the Cardinals failed to follow through on a promise for a new contract a year ago. Graves said the team still plans to eventually address Boldin’s desire for a long-term contract.

Warner started all 20 games for Arizona last season. In 16 regular-season games, he completed 67 percent of his throws for 4,583 yards and 30 touchdowns, with 14 interceptions. He finished second in the NFL in completions, completion percentage and passing yards.

In four playoff games, Warner was even better, completing 68 percent of his passes for 1,147 yards and 11 touchdowns, with three interceptions.

But for one extremely costly interception, Warner was brilliant in Arizona’s 27-23 loss to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl, completing 31 of 43 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns.

In addition, Warner was named the NFL Man of the Year for his off-the-field contributions, as well as his playing excellence.

These details were found on the NFL website. All I can say is congrats Kurt on deciding that Arizona was where you where meant to retire at in the NFL. What I have to say on Arizonas behalf is that they made a smart move signing Kurt back on the revised deal his agent offered because he almost whent to another NFC team which could have came back to haunt them in the regular season and or on the playoff road to the Super Bowl in 2009.

So I now ask you all to leave your comments on Warners deal and if you have debates about the details or my opinions I have stated please let me know I am deeply interested in hearing your opinions about the issues I write about and the rest of LSS write about.

Flozell Will Finish His Career a Cowboy

A few more hours and his fate could have been much different, but now Flozell Adams’ career is set in place. Adams signed a 6-year deal worth around $42 million on the last day before free agency signing began. The new contract includes $15 million in guaranteed money and about $13 million in signing bonus.

Flozell Adams was drafted by the Cowboys in the second round of the 1998 Draft. He is a 4-time Pro Bowler and also selected All-Pro second team in 2007.

Adams told the press that he was happy to be in Dallas and never thought of leaving. He will turn 33 in May, so this deal ensures he will finish his career as a Dallas Cowboy, exactly where it began.

Dallas Cowboys Weekly Poll Results

Hi Cowboys fans!
Here are the results of our first Cowboys Poll of the new season. Last week we asked you…
What Do You Think Of The Cowboys Off Season Moves?

I am not surprised that 83 percent of you thought the Cowboys had a pretty darn good off season. Given the fact that we had to replace Bill Parcells and most of the coaching staff, I think we did alright with the new coaching regime. We also added some high profile players and locked in some of our stars to contract extensions as well. The word is that our top draft pick is in camp and he is turning some heads with his play and just signed a new contract. Not bad for the Cowboys, not bad at all.
