Cardinals QB Warner hopes for contract extension

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Anquan Boldin isn't the only Arizona Cardinal looking for a new contract.

Quarterback Kurt Warner, whose three-year deal expires this season, is seeking an extension. For him, the only question is whether he should be paid like a starter or a backup.

The 37-year-old Warner enters camp as Matt Leinart's backup. But Warner, who started 11 games last year, wants starter's money if he wins the job.

Warner said Friday that he's not looking to break the bank but merely wants to be "fairly compensated."

Unlike Boldin, who says he has ordered his agent to cut off contract talks with the club, Warner is open to negotiating.
