"We felt like, given the circumstances it was better applied to Karlos Dansby and we would make our best effort to get Kurt Warner signed," Graves said."
Graves doesn't want to characterize negotiations with Warner as good or bad, but they continue to talk. Graves is optimistic that eventually they will get something done.
Ken Whisenhunt isn't as candid. Whisenhunt tells the tale that Warner is still reflecting on where or not to retire.
"Kurt and I have talked quite regularly over the period and all I can tell is what Kurt said to me, that he's going through a process," Whisenhunt said. "And I haven't tried to rush him because I think Kurt is going to make his decision when he's ready. Just in our conversations about where we're going this year and changes that we've made, it's all been positive."

Graves doesn't think that Warner is working out in Tampa at the moment.
"Like a lot of our players he is taking time off," Graves said. "We are not that far removed from the Super Bowl. We have a few players working out, but I don't believe Kurt has decided to do that quite yet."
