By the end of the week, QB Kurt Warner likely will return to Arizona, according to league sources. It’s where he wants to be, where the Cardinals want him to be, and the San Francisco 49ers aren’t expected to make the type of push for him that some believed they would.
The 49ers knew it was, at best, a longshot to pry away Warner. But they entertained a visit with him Monday anyway before Warner returned to Arizona to think about his decision.
But after Warner thinks about it, he will realize that the 49ers are expected to go in a different direction, and he is expected to return to the same direction.
