Default Warren's stock plummets

Quote:
DALLAS - He once was must- see TV.

That was how Gerard Warren became a Denver Broncos defensive tackle, how he found a $36 million contract on the table in front of him just a little more than one year ago.

And that's how he now finds himself on the trading block with the possibility of being the No. 3 pick of the 2001 draft traded for the second time in a two-year span or even released if no deal can be struck soon.

"All you have to do is look at the film; the film speaks for itself," Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said when Denver traded a fourth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for Warren in 2005.

And by most accounts, that same video, just more than two years later, is why the Broncos were poised to ship the tackle to another team or release him outright.

Because now, by their actions, it's clear the Broncos see a player who doesn't exactly fit their defensive scheme, one whose conditioning suffered through an injury- marred 2006 season and one who still hasn't regained his form of 2005, his first season in Denver that led to his hefty six-year contract.

The Back to Back busts of Brown and Warren set the Browns back for years. I could see Warren adding some depth to the Texans front, and he would add some much needed beef to the small D-Line.

Quote:
Assistant head coach/defense Jim Bates wants defensive tackles to engage the blocker in front of them, anchor and cover the two gaps on each side of the blocker.

Warren traditionally has preferred to pick a gap and be a get-up-the-field player looking to penetrate rather than anchor.

The result has been Warren, according to some in the Broncos organization, has been slower to adapt to Bates' scheme.

Bates' desire for more beef in the middle also is why the team traded for Kennedy in July, why Sam Adams was signed and why Amon Gordon has moved up the depth chart when he did not under former coordinator Larry Coyer.

These are his stats from 2005:

14 solo tackles
5 assists
3 sacks
1 forced fumble

I don't know how he managed to get $36 million out of that.

Warren is now a Raider...makes sense if you think about it...the Raiders are the elephant graveyard of NFL players.
