Cardinals up offer to Warner to $23 million

Mar 2, 2009 at 10:11 PM--


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.

The San Francisco 49ers finished Sunday's game without two of their best defenders. Pass rusher Nick Bosa left the game at the end of the first half and was ruled out with a concussion. Linebacker Fred Warner exited the second half and did not return due to an ankle injury. "On Nick Bosa's concussion, my information is that I cannot speculate on a concussion," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And it's not just me. It's impossible. Teammates sounded like he was talking in the locker room and OK, but that doesn't actually mean anything because everyone recovers from concussions differently, and you can't tough it out." Bosa has hurdles to get past to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers,
