49ers Offer For Warner Will Likely Exceed Arizona’s

Matt Maiocco, of The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports the San Francisco 49ers were believed to be prepared to offer free-agent QB Kurt Warner (Cardinals) a contract in excess of the two-year, $20 million deal the Arizona Cardinals presented him recently. Warner’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, said he anticipated getting together with Warner and his wife, Brenda, to discuss their options before plotting their next move. Neither Warner nor his agent did any negotiating with the 49ers Monday, March 2, according to the Arizona Republic.
