[January 29, 2010]  TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Kurt Warner was set to end all the speculation with a news conference on Friday to announce whether he is calling an end to his stirring NFL career.

HardwareMost indications pointed toward Warner leaving the game after a dozen years in a league that at first rejected him, then revered him in a storybook run with the St. Louis Rams.

Written off as a has-been, he rose again to lead the long-suffering Arizona Cardinals to the Super Bowl a year ago.

Warner has a season left on the two-year, $23 million deal he signed with Arizona but he has insisted money would not be a factor in his decision.

The 38-year-old quarterback would leave the game on his terms after leading the Cardinals to a second straight NFC West crown. He had one of the greatest postseason performances in NFL history in Arizona's 51-45 overtime wild card victory over Green Bay, but sustained a brutal hit in the Cardinals' divisional round loss at New Orleans six days later.
