While there’s no doubt they should have, reports say that the Niners did NOT offer a contract to Cardinals free agent QB Kurt Warner. The SF Chronicle has the story:
The 49ers said no offer was made to Kurt Warner while the player’s agent said a “concept” was arrived at during his visit with the team. “We have a concept in mind that both of us are comfortable with,” Mark Bartelstein said. “He was tremendously impressed with the 49ers. You couldn’t be more impressed with their presentation. The 49ers were sensational. “Kurt has a tough decision to make in the next day or two.”
Warner since visiting the team has proposed a two-year deal to the Cardinals at a reported $23 million, which is about $3 mil over what the Cards want to pay him. Word though is that the Cards likely will cave in, and a deal is expected to be done by the weekend.
