The Arizona Cardinals, in search of a veteran quarterback, will make a strong push to sign two-time MVP Kurt Warner this week, according to a league source.

Warner, who exercised an out in his contract with the New York Giants in order to become a free agent, wants to go to a team that would make him the starter, which is a role the Cardinals can give him.

Josh McCown, Arizona's starting quarterback in 2004, did get a qualifying offer from the Cardinals this week as a restricted free agent. He received the highest tender of $1.4 million, which will essentially keep him on the roster.

I think Warner still could be effective as a starter, they have some good receivers down in Arizona in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. McCown could learn from his experience as well.

That may be about the only place he could still go and be a starter. Or Cleveland...

Kurt Warner was in town Friday to visit with officials of the Chicago Bears, the second stop on a three-team tour for the two-time NFL MVP.

Warner was in Arizona on Thursday and will be in Detroit on Sunday.

Warner, who had been bothered by injuries in recent years, completed 174 of 277 passes for 2,054 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions last season with the Giants. He led New York to a 5-2 start before the team lost its next two games and turned the starting quarterback job over to top draft pick Eli Manning.

He has said he wants to be a starter and knows Bears head coach Lovie Smith, the former Rams defensive coordinator, from the time both were in St. Louis. Warner led the Rams to two Super Bowls.

He definitely wants to be a starter where ever he goes, he might not do bad in Chicago. They just picked up Mushin Muhammed, he'd be a good target for Kurt, if he ends up going there. Thats if the Chicago line could keep him healthy.

Kurt Warner agreed Sunday to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Arizona Cardinals, the two-time MVP's third team in three seasons.

The 33-year-old quarterback, who lost his starting job with the Giants to rookie Eli Manning last season, is expected to sign the contract and appear at a news conference in Arizona on Tuesday.

Warner, a former Arena Football League player, was a three-time Pro Bowl selection with the St. Louis Rams. He led the Rams to the Super Bowl in 1999 and 2001, beating Tennessee and winning MVP in the 2000 game.

But after losing the starting job to Marc Bulger in St. Louis, he signed a one-year deal with the Giants before last season.

He's got some good receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin down in Arizona. And he stays in the NFC East where he'll get a chance to haunt the Giants, who gave up on him.

Warner has made it clear that he expects to be a starter, and Arizona coach Dennis Green made it clear that the opportunity for him is there. The Cardinals starter most of last season, Josh McCown, will be back next season.

Arizona signed defensive end Chike Okeafor on Monday to a five-year, $25 million contract, the Cardinals' third big free agent addition in five days.

Okeafor follows offensive tackle Oliver Ross, who signed Friday, and quarterback Kurt Warner, who agreed to a deal Sunday. Warner will sign his contract and hold a news conference Tuesday.

Like the others, Okeafor provides a strong upgrade at his position. He was Seattle's left defensive end last season and had a career-high 8½ sacks after recording eight the previous season.

Nice sign with the DE, maybe warner will be around to help improve that young QB sqaud of theirs.

They do have some talent down there in Arizona and I personally think Denny Green is a pretty darn good coach. I dont think they're ready for the playoffs quite yet, but I think this season will be a step in the right direction for the Cards.

I think the potential for the playoffs is there, especially in the little brother NFC. And thier division isn't that good, possibly the worst in the NFL...
