He will return to the Rattlers for one more season. He is 38 and this will be his 15th season in the AFL. He's coming back to win another championship and I wish him the best. He has been one of the greatest AFL QB's ever and he deserves to finish his career off strong.

Quarterback Sherdrick Bonner has decided to return for a 15th season with the Arizona Rattlers. The Rattlers have scheduled a press conference for Friday about a “major football-related announcement.”
Arena Football League sources confirm it is to say Bonner is coming back. He is expected to sign a one-year contract.
Bonner, who turns 38 in October, has contemplated retirement for the past couple of years and recently moved to Colorado with his wife. But he remains one of the top quarterbacks in the AFL, throwing for 3,991 yards, 83 touchdowns and 16 interceptions last season.
The Rattlers started 0-3 in 2006 but rallied to finish 8-8 and clobbered Utah in a wild-card playoff win before falling to San Jose in a conference semifinal game.
