    He's a DTackle. And we've got a full rotation between Wilfork, Wright, Brace and Pryor. He's not playing Dend for us at 330lbs.

    getting to think of it, he would likely be an upgrade over brace

    So let's spend money to replace our third string DT!! It's not like this team has any other holes that need filling.

    I wasn't sure if he could take an DE position or not.. if he could and be viable it gives us more freedom w/ our 4 draft picks in the top 50... thats all..

    I know, I understood the topic subject. I was just responding to what "tanked" said about getting him to replace Ron Brace. If that is all we could accomplish by acquiring Warren it'd just be a waste of resources.

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?

    using a 2nd round pick on brace was a waste of resources.......

    you do realize that warren is not going to get paid much........but that's besides the point since I was pretty sure I was joking.......

    you probably thought I was serious about him playing LB

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?


    How can you say it was a waste of resources? This guy isnt a Chad Jackson case, yet. He's not out of the league. He's not even a 2nd year player. He's insurance to probably the 2nd most important player on this team. And who knows how the rest of his time plays out. But to call a guy a "waste" before the guy's even be here a full year is just garbage.

    Maybe a waste of a pick. Because it could be a bust.

    Not a waste of resources.

    You need a backup NT, especially when Wilfork could have potentially held out and not played.

    I'm pretty sure people were calling VW a bust after his first season as well.

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?

    put it this way, as a rookie, chad jackson showed more and he was injured.

    think what you want, but a guy who was not prepared to even step on the field was a waste....especially given the players who were available at that moment...

    face it......if brace actually showed anything, the pats would likely not have moved so fast on wilfork

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?

    true.....but the chargers managed to find a replacement in a bar.....Ian Scott was out of the game for over a year when jamal williams went down in 2008, and he played pretty well last year when williams went out again

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?

    I wasn't......no by any stretch of the imagination.......in wilfork, you had a guy who was over playing......I'll take that any day......in brace you have a guy who showed up not ready to be in the league

    I don't recall saying you did.

    I agree that he was not good last year. A disappointment. That doesn't mean he's a bust.

    Re: Gerard Warren being released possibly .. any interest?

    I know....but I was assuming you were addressing me since I am predicting brace to be a bust

    he's not very far away from being one.....a season of OTA's is all that separates him now......I believe the pats FO won't hesitate to cut him loose if a 2010 day 3 draft pick shows up and does what pryor did

    you simply cannot feel good about a 2nd round pick being a healthy scratch for most of the year

    Denver let him go for a conditional 5th to a rival, I'd trust Denvers opinion more than that of the Raiders.
