Warner Expected to Retire

NFL betting lines have Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner set to announce his retirement on Friday.

Warner is 38 years old and has considered retirement in the past and all indications are that he intends to call it quits this time.  NFL odds had the Cardinals defeating the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round before losing in the divisional round to the New Orleans Saints.

NFL betting lines have seen Warner impact a lot of games throughout his career.  He was brilliant in the Cardinals NFL odds victory over the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round.  He has been voted to five Pro Bowls in his career.  He has won two NFL MVP awards and he is only the second quarterback in NFL history to throw more than 100 TD passes for two different teams. In the NFL betting lines win over Green Bay he threw for 379 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions.  In the NFL odds loss to New Orleans though he was hit hard and actually had to leave the game at one point.  Concussions have been an issue for Warner and earlier this season he suffered the third of his career.  Some NFL betting lines reports had it being the fifth concussion of his career.

Warner has one year left on a two-year, $23 million dollar contract.  The Cardinals were hoping he would come back for another NFL betting lines season since they don’t have a lot of faith in backup Matt Leinart. The Cardinals have been so good with Warner at the helm. Warner is probably going to be a member of the Hall of Fame and the Cardinals simply don’t have a replacement. "He's been a big part of my career since I've been here," Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle said, "He's a great teammate and a great leader. He's been an outstanding role model."

Even other players know how good Warner has been. If he does retire, the league will lose a great player but an even better person," Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.  Warner has played 12 seasons as NFL betting lines indicate. “He's had a hell of a career," linebacker Darnell Dockett said. "I have to take my hat off to him."

Warner won two MVP awards with the Rams and was a major reason they were a winner in NFL odds. He played in two Super Bowls with the Rams and won one of them in NFL betting lines.
