Broncos Want DT Ty Warren To Take Pay Cut, Could Part Ways If He Refuses

Most people are focused on how star quarterback Peyton Manning performs in offseason workouts for the Denver Broncos at the moment, but the absence of defensive tackle Ty Warren is becoming a conspicuous issue as well. Warren has been asked to take a pay cut from the $4 million salary he is due in the 2012-13 season, and he has avoided participating in voluntary team workouts in response. As Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post notes in his recent Q&A, the Broncos hold a mandatory three-day minicamp from June 12-14, so "if Warren doesn't show at that point, the team may consider moving on without him if he still isn't interested in redoing his deal."

If Warren doesn't come around, Denver may just move forward with their defensive line and try to make due with rookie DT Derek Wolfe.
