Broncos land former Patriots DE Ty Warren with a 2-year, $10 million deal that includes $2.5 million guaranteed.
Warren had also been connected to the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs. He was released by the Patriots last week. He counted $5.9 million against the salary cap, which appeared to be a potential reason for his release, but the two sides apparently never came close to reaching a deal for less money. Warren told the Boston Herald that the Patriots wanted to "go in a different direction."
Warren missed the 2010 season with a hip injury, but that injury was not career-threatening. He was a first-round pick by the Pats in 2003. He had 20.5 sacks from 2003 to 2009, including 7.5 in 2006.
