Warner's wife says trade welcomed

ST. LOUIS -- The wife of benched St. Louis Rams quarterback
Kurt Warner sounded off again Monday, saying in a radio interview
that a trade would be welcomed after the season if the situation
stayed the same.

Last season, Brenda Warner called a radio show to complain that
she -- and not coach Mike Martz -- had suggested that the two-time
MVP have his injured hand X-rayed. The X-ray revealed a broken hand
that Warner had been playing with.

On Monday, Brenda Warner told "Steve and D.C." on The Mall
that her husband wouldn't mind changing teams.

"Probably, just from the point that we want to play, he wants
to play, plain and simple," Brenda Warner said. "So, if he's not
going to play here, then he wants to play somewhere.

"You just want to be wanted, like anybody, whether you're a
D.J. or whatever you do."

Marc Bulger has started ahead of Warner the last two weeks,
although Martz said at the time of the change that it wasn't
necessarily permanent. Brenda Warner reiterated that a new city
would be fine if her husband doesn't get his starting job back.

"So you know what?" Brenda Warner said. "We're open for
anything. We've always said we trust God in everything that happens
for us. This is one of the things that we've got, again, to put our
trust in Him and know that He'll take care of us."

Kurt Warner told TV station KSDK, for whom he's paid for weekly
interviews, that he's beginning to think about life after the Rams.

"I'm starting to imagine it a little more every day, I think,"
Warner said. "It's not something I think about often, it's not
something I want to transpire.

"But with the way it looks like ... the direction of this team
is going, it's a distinct possibility."

Last December, Brenda Warner called KFNS to complain her husband
had his broken hand X-rayed at her suggestion.

"Martz had nothing to do with it," Brenda Warner said then.
"All week long I said, 'Kurt, I'm a nurse, you should go get it
X-rayed.' The doctors never once said he should get an X-ray.
(They) said, 'No, it's only bruised."'
