Iowa native Kurt Warner returned to his home state today (Friday) for an even involving his charitable foundation. Warner spent this past season on the bench as a backup to Marc Bulger, but says he doesn’t anticipate leaving St. Louis. He says he’d like to be starting again, and as far as he knows he’ll be back in St. Louis to compete for the job.Warner was the focus of a controversy involving remarks he made during an appearance over whether his religious beliefs played a role in his benching. There was tension between Warner and his coach — and he was asked if they’re on the same page. He says he believes so, as every time they talk they appear to be on the same page. He says they just have to see how things shake out, but he believes he’ll be back in St. Louis “unless God takes us in a different direction.” Warner declined to discuss the controversy again.Warner is in the last year of his contract with the Rams, who would take a big salary cap hit if they trade him.
