Kurt Warner among 15 finalists for Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2015 class

GLENDALE, Ariz. – If you look at the resume tape Kurt Warner put together during his dozen years in the NFL, you’d have no issue with him going into the Hall of Fame.

Warner could be on the cusp of being enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

The 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s 2015 class were announced, and Warner is one of them.

Warner is a finalist in his first year of eligibility.

Warner played for the St. Louis Rams [1998-2003], New York Giants [2004] and Arizona Cardinals [2005-09].

Warner is considered to be one of the greatest stories ever to play out in the NFL. Warner was an undrafted free agent; he signed with the Green Bay Packers in 1994 and was released. He spent time with the Iowa Barnstormers [1995-97] before signing on with the Rams. Warner would win two league MVP awards [1999, 2001] and a Super Bowl championship with St. Louis in 2000. Warner was named Super Bowl MVP in their 23-16 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Warner would go on to lead the Arizona Cardinals to their lone Super Bowl appearance in 2009. Warner is a two-time first-team All-Pro and he played in four Pro Bowls. He was also named the 2008 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year.

In 125 games [113 starts], Warner threw for 32,344 yards, 208 touchdowns and 128 interceptions. He led his teams on 14 game-winning drives in his career.

The Hall of Fame Selection Committee will meet in Phoenix, Ariz., on January 31 to determine who will be in the 2015 Hall of Fame class.
