Kurt Warner‘s agent, Mark Bartlestein, spent Thursday in Arizona trying to negotiate a deal for his client.
Unfortunately for Warner and the Cardinals, Bartlestein spent Thursday night flying back to his home in Chicago.
Despite face-to-face negotiations, the two sides couldn’t resolve their differences. Now the quarterback will become an unrestricted free agent at 12:01 a.m. ET Friday.
The two sides will continue talking, and Warner isn’t opposed to taking free-agent visits. In fact, he would. But right or wrong, there is a perception that Warner wants to remain in Arizona, which has impacted negotiations.
Now Warner will become a free agent — free to listen to offers from any team.
