Taking less to make the team better

I'll hand it to Kurt Warner on this one. He appears to be a pretty innovative guy. He's basically putting money where his mouth is, looking to take less in order for the team to get better...

On Tuesday, Warner instructed his agent, Mark Bartelstein, to make a two-year, $23 million proposal to stay with the Cardinals. According to Bartelstein, Warner's proposal would include $12 million in guarantees, $6 million each season.

To further sweeten the deal to the Cardinals, Warner, through Bartelstein, is willing to reduce his contract by $1 million a year if they can successfully renegotiate the contract of wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

There's really nothing I don't like about this. The guy clearly wants to come back to Arizona. He also wants to do what's best for himself and the team. Would he really want to leave Arizona where he can throw to Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin, to go to San Fransisco where he can throw to ... um ..... other receivers?

He's bending over to make his other receiver happy. He's taking one for the team. It'd be nice to see more guys do this. Love the idea behind it.
