Defensive tackle Ty Warren has agreed to restructure his contract and stay with the Denver Broncos this upcoming season, Pro Football Weekly reports via Twitter. Warren had been holding himself out of OTAs after the Broncos said they would like him to take pay cut from the $4 million he is expected to make this season.
Warren on a new deal with the Broncos: "Ultimately we met in a middle ground and got the deal done."— Gray Caldwell (@gray_dbdotcom) June 6, 2012
Terms of the restructured deal have not yet been disclosed, so it's unknown what compromise was reached. The Broncos were reportedly considering moving on without the lineman if he didn't agree to a new contract. Warren missed the 2010 season with the New England Patriots, and the 2011 season after he was signed by Denver due to injuries.
Though Warren is a ways removed from the 7.5 sacks he recorded during the 2007 season, he is still expected to start in the Broncos' rotation up front defensively. Should he suffer another setback, the Broncos may have to rely heavily on 2012 2nd Round draft pick Derek Wolfe out of Cincinnati.
