The New England Patriots have cut veteran DE Gerrard Warren, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com.
Warren, 33, has bounced around the league a bit after being drafted by the Cleveland Browns as the third overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft.
Warren is getting up there but the Chiefs should absolutely take a hard look at him. He has been a productive player throughout his career, particularly in the pass rush department. He started ten games for the Patriots last season at DE and NT.
Warren isn’t a guy you want starting anymore but he could be perfect as a situational pass rusher for the Chiefs. Neither Glenn Dorsey nor Tyson Jackson is very good at generating pressure. Warren is a guy that could come in to help get more of a push up front in passing situations. Plus Warren’s versatility along the defensive line is another quality the Chiefs value. He is listed at 330 and can play end or NT.
Warren’s 3.5 sacks from last season are more than Tyson Jackson has in his entire career…just saying.
