According to NFL Network, the Arizona Cardinals, clearly worried by free agent quarterback Kurt Warner's trip to San Francisco, have increased their offer to $23 million over two years. This is an increase of $3 million compared to their original offer, but still shy of agent Mark Bartelstein's contract demands.
Warner did leave the 49ers' Santa Clara headquarters without a contract. Rotoworld.com speculates that whatever the 49ers offered Warner, clearly did not "blow him out of the water" and feels that he will resign with the Cardinals.
Mark Bartelstein is reportedly seeking around $29 million. Warner and his wife Brenda left the Bay Area tonight and are headed home to Arizona.
