Kurt Warner Denies Chipping Money To Possible AnquanBoldin Deal

TCorrespondent IIIMarch 7, 2009

Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner denied reports that $2 million of his new two year, $23 million dollar deal would be given to new deal for disgruntled wide receiver Anquan Boldin. 

In an interview with Dan Patrick Friday, Warner said "It didn't come up at all" in response to the alleged $1 million a year commitment from Warner's contract to Boldin.

However, this denial flies in the face of reports by Warner's agent, Mark Bartelstein, who claimed a counter-proposal was made to the Cardinals regarding Boldin's contract situation.

Interestingly enough, Warner also told Patrick that he would not mind playing with recently released wide receiver Terrell Owens

In light of this new revelation, this may intensify the rift between Boldin and the Cardinals.  Boldin has made it public he wants a new deal and now his quarterback sold him out to get more money for himself. 

Teams that are still in the market for a wide receiver, such as the Vikings, Dolphins, Bucs, and Eagles, may still have a shot at acquiring Boldin if the situation in Arizona continues to deteriorate.
