Warren Hits the Field

Posted Aug 4, 2011

Newly acquired defensive tackle Ty Warren practiced with the Broncos for the first time Thursday.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Almost immediately after the Broncos stepped onto the practice field at Dove Valley this afternoon, it was clear there was something different about the team.
 
It wasn't quite the 800-pound gorilla in the room. Almost.
 
Let's just call it the 300-pound Warren.
 
Ty Warren, the former Patriots defensive tackle who was signed Wednesday, made his practice debut with the Broncos Thursday evening. He was among a group of 11 signed free agents who practiced for the first time this season with the CBA ratified Thursday afternoon, starting the new league year.

The ninth-year veteran joins the Broncos after missing all of last season with a hip injury, but says he feels perfectly healthy.
 
"I feel real good," Warren said. "After a year, it just feels foreign with the pads on. But football's football at the end of the day, so I've just got to get in there and mix it up. It felt like I never left."
 
However, if there was any inclination that the Broncos would go easy on the former first-round draft pick in his first practice in a year, that was put to rest before it even began, when every new defensive player had to complete 20 up-downs.
 
"That about killed me," Warren said with a laugh. "It's initiation though, it's how you build camaraderie. It's our first day out here and everybody does it. So it was good to be out here. I know we'll get cracked on a little bit for showing how tired and wounded we were doing those up-downs, but all in all it's initiation, it's fun, it's part of the game and everyone's happy to be out here."
 
Warren visited numerous teams, but after meeting with Head Coach John Fox, assistant coaches and other front office personnel, he decided that Denver was where he wanted to be.
 
"After getting in touch with John Fox and just sitting down and going over the scheme with D-line coaches and their energy and exuberance and where they're trying to go, it was pretty much an easy decision when I stepped back and thought about what every single person I talked to said," Warren said.

Warren was one of several players brought in to add depth to the defensive line in the past week.

"Everybody we bring in we think is going to improve our defense, and as I mentioned after the draft, defensive tackle was going to be an area that we were going to address in free agency," Head Coach John Fox said. "I think the trade with Brodrick Bunkley, and of course the signing of Ty Warren, gives us two guys that have started and played at a high level in the National Football League. I think that will improve our defense."
 
In addition to Warren and Bunkley, the club added Jeremy Jarmon and Derrick Harvey, re-signed Marcus Thomas and brought back Ryan McBean, who signed his exclusive rights tender to remain with the team. All six are defensive linemen vying for significant playing time alongside Elvis Dumervil, Kevin Vickerson, Louis Leonard and Robert Ayers, who opened training camp on the first team.
 
"There's some new pieces; I'm one of the new pieces," Warren said. "But we're just trying to come and jell together and work cohesively as a group."
 
When that happens, opposing teams will soon be feeling the weight of the Broncos as well.
