ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The Denver Broncos had a surprise visitor show up for workouts on Wednesday after defensive lineman Ty Warren agreed to a restructured deal in time to join the team on the field.
Warren hasn't spent a lot of time on the field in recent seasons, sitting out 2010 with a hip injury while with New England and missing all of last season in Denver when he had surgery to repair his torn right triceps.
Given his injury-riddled past, the team was hoping Warren would take a pay cut. He understood the business decision, saying, "Ultimately, we met at middle ground and got the deal done."
Warren will be part of a rotation of defensive tackles that will include Justin Bannan, Kevin Vickerson and rookie Derek Wolfe.
