Warner doesn’t have target date for retirement decision

With speculation that Cardinals QB Kurt Warner will contemplate retirement this offseason, Warner answered several questions on the subject during his postgame news conference following Saturday’s 45-14 loss to the Saints, perhaps the last time we’ll hear his thoughts on the matter for a while.

“I don’t really have a target date,” Warner said about making his decision. “But I want to get away. I’ve thought about it a lot, and have over the last couple of years. I have some ideas in my head. But you want to get away from the season a bit.

“I don’t hink it will be a long process, a long, drawn-out thing. I would want to let [the Cardinals] know as soon as I know, for sure.”

Warner said his decision will come down to determining what’s best for him and that the vicious hit he took from Saints DE Bobby McCray won’t be a determining factor.

“Yeah, every time you take a hit like that, it makes you think twice about playing this game,” Warner joked.

The hit, though, was no joke. It knocked the 38-year-old Warner from the game to end the second half, although he was able to return. Warner said X-rays were negative, and no bones were broken.

“I didn’t see the guy behind me, he hit me pretty good,” Warner said. “I had the wind knocked out of me. I had some soreness all around the rib cage area. The degree of pain isn’t horrible, just some pain when I breathe.”
