The Denver Broncos picked up free agent defensive tackle Ty Warren on Tuesday night. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal is two years and worth $10 million. Warren will receive $2.5 million in guaranteed money.
Warren was let go by the New England Patriots last week and had several visits around the league to shop his services, including to Kansas City and to Houston. It looks like the Broncos are intent on starting him at defensive tackle, given the money they have invested in him.
Having played as a 3-4 defensive end in New England, Warren will need to move in for John Fox's 4-3 defense. Will Kevin Vickerson start beside him or will recently-acquired Brodrick Bunkley be next to him? More than likely there will be a rotation among Warren, Vickerson, Bunkley and Marcus Thomas, so the question of who the starter is doesn't look quite that large.
