The  man Dick Vermeil said his team would rally around and play good football 11 years ago has decided to finally retire into the dessert sunset of Arizona.

The 2-time MVP and Super Bowl MVP will be walking away with a year left on a two-year, $23 million contract. 

Warner is one of the great storybook careers in NFL history. Going from bagging grocerys to throwing for over 4,000 yards and winning the Super Bowl with the Rams in 1999.

“Obviously, it’s been 12 unbelievable years, some of the best years of my life,” a composed Warner said. “But I want everybody to know that I’m just as excited about the next 12, that I’m excited about what lies in front of me. I’m excited about spending more time with my family, and seeing what God’s going to do next.”

Warner’s career ends with stops in St. Louis, New York, and Arizona to go along with 32,344 yards and 208 career touchdowns.
