Cardinals sign up Kurt Warner for three more years

AP , PHOENIX, ARIZONA

The Arizona Cardinals signed Kurt Warner to a three-year contract on Tuesday, ending speculation about their quarterback plans. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The deal means the 34-year-old Warner, a two-time NFL Most Valuable Player who started 10 games for the Cardinals in an injury-shortened 2005 season, will enter training camp as the starter.

Warner moved to the Cardinals after a subpar 2004 season with the New York Giants. He had an immediate impact with Arizona in 2005, completing 242 of 375 passes for 2,713 yards. He threw 11 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. His 64.5-percent completion percentage set a team record, breaking the previous mark of 61.7 set by Steve Beuerlein in 1993.
