It was no surprise, but it’s probably hard for some Rams fan to comprehend. The team officially released Kurt Warner yesterday, ending a very interesting time for the quarterback and the team. Warner came out of obscurity and led the Rams to two Super Bowl Appearances, winning Super Bowl XXXIV. He was also named the NFL’s MVP twice. But Warner’s job was in question mid-way through the 2002 season, when he went down with an injury and Marc Bulger took over. After six fumbles in the first game of the 2003 season, Warner was benched for Bulger, who led the team to an NFC West Title. Warner hasn’t won a game since the 2001 season. Bulger signed a four-year deal with the Rams in May, which all but ended any chance of Warner starting or staying in St. Louis. “That’s not for Kurt Warner, this guy’s 32-years old, you know. He’s a two-time MVP. To have him stay in a backup capacity in St. Louis, there’s no way in the world that that was gonna work. It wouldn’t work for Kurt, it wouldn’t work for the Rams, it wouldn’t work for Marc Bulger,” his agent Mark Bartelstein said yesterday. The question is where will Warner end up. Most signs point to him inking a deal with the Giants, though Bartelstein says there are a number of teams expressing interest in Warner’s services.
