Kurt Warner says he reached out to a coach about playing this season

Kurt Warner went into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year and the induction ceremonies usually come well after a player has stopped thinking about strapping on a helmet for an NFL game.

On Monday night, Warner suggested he hasn’t gotten the desire to play totally out of his system. Warner dropped into the broadcast booth during a St. Louis Cardinals game and talked about missing the game. Warner said he did and that he sometimes hoped “that one team, at some point, gives me another 7-on-7. Just give me 20 plays and let me see if I can still do it.”

Warner added that he reached out to a coach about doing just that this season.

“I was actually ready to, for this coming season, I actually talked to a coach and my wife said, ‘Go for it, I think it would be great,’” Warner said, via Yahoo Sports. “So I actually talked to a coach about possibly doing it if they needed someone, but then they went out and signed somebody. I don’t think they thought I was serious. So I think we’re completely done now.”

If some of this sounds familiar, it is likely because Warner tweeted in 2015 that he was “intrigued” after a team asked him to work out for them. Warner’s tweet came on April 1 and he said it was an April Fools joke a couple of days later.

Monday’s comments might not have been a joke, but it probably doesn’t make it any likelier that Warner is going to be in an NFL uniform again.

  1. Well, if we’re talking nothing more than a camp arm for 7 on 7 that has no shot of making the roster anyway… why not?

  2. the mighty 2009 superbowl winning whodat bounty hunter defense put an end to him and its disrespectful that he suggest returning after will smiths passing. will smith intercepted your last pass kurt and bobby mcray gave you your last lick, accept it respect it.

  3. He needs some of that happy juice Brady’s trainer gives him. Delicious, and undetectable.

  4. A lot of older guys can probably still sling it. Heck, Testaverde probably still has a better arm than half of the guys in the league. But taking a hit is another thing. Stay retired Kurt and be thankful you’re on TV.

  5. Would love to see him play. And Favre too.

    Not a lot of good character or fun to watch QB’s any more in the league, esp with Brady leading the way as a cheater.

  6. Warner is still jealous of Brady. He still believes the Patriots filmed the Rams’ walkthrough even though John Tomase, the guy who “broke” the story, admitted that he made it up and his newspaper issued a front page apology for the lie.

  7. “terripet says:

    Let it go your to old”

    Let this be a harsh reminder of how the public education system has failed.

  8. After his farewell hit against the Saints I’m surprised he and his wife would be interested in putting on a helmet. On the other hand, have you seen the money they’re paying slightly above average quarterbacks???

    EXACTLY!! Glennon at $18.5m? Give Christian Kurt a call and have him sign on the dotted line for $12-15m.

    Go ahead and take a look at those Super Bowl stats (and records) again.

    This guy can get it done.
