    Ty Warren not on board with Broncos’ request to cut his pay | ProFootballTalk

    May come to a point where the Broncos simply release him..they aren't going to honor the contract money they originally offered him.

    I don't know if Belichick would be interested in taking him back,perhaps for a $2M one year deal,but that's too high IMO.

    After a severe injury and a year away from the game and being in his 30s,not sure if he's worth anything more than vet minimum now.

    I thought they let him go because they thought his injury finished him. Didn't know he was still playing.

    Maybe he should try producing on the field for the first time in several years.

    Wouldn't be against bringing him in to training camp for the vet minimum, mostly because there's a shortage of guys on the roster who we know can play the 3-4 DE anyways. Also don't expect much from him at this point, though.

    I've always thought Ty is a great guy and I admire him for going back to get his degree. He was also a terrific player for us. But, he missed last year with an injury and he's not a young guy so the reality of finances in the NFL might be somewhat eye-opening for him, but he's a bright guy and those realities shouldn't be.

    I find it an amusing point of discussion that players want their salaries escalated the moment they start performing yet don't believe it's a fair request when they fail to perform and their salary contracts. Then again, I'm a person who believes that contracts should be honored once the sides have agreed and signed. I'm an old fashioned, outdated fooled who fails to realize that contracts are worthless pieces of paper.

    If he's got his weight back up and can still play the game, he'd be the second best D-lineman on the team again. I see no problem with looking at him if he gets cut.

    Where you are going wrong here is that they are honored. The problem isn't that either party isn't honoring the contract they signed. They are. You don't like the language? Easy, don't sign it and go somewhere else for another contract you do like.

    I have a suggestion for the bleeding hearts out there that always seem to think these guys are being taken advantage of unfairly by the meany owners: Learn what a contract is. It's an agreement by two parties that can and will be enforced legally if need be.

    I'm not in favor or against either party for the bolded comment. It takes two tango. The point I find interesting is the positioning of either party given different performance outcomes.

    It certainly IS commendable that he went back to get his degree, and as I recall, he also delayed getting his hip surgery the year after his injury while his efforts were geared towards getting his degree, and that also contributed to him reporting to camp underweight and not ready to play football.

    Now NFL players get paid big bucks, but there is a price that comes with it, and if you no longer want to pay the price, then you have no right to expect the money to keep coming in.

    Good luck in your future endeavors Ty, but I suspect excelling in the NFL, and getting a commensurate paycheck, is not part of your future.

    Ty was a part of some great defenses for the Pats, but it's time to move on.

    I guess I don't understand why the NFL players don't try to get their degree before and after their NFL career. I don't agree with the way Ty handled his degree situation. Patriot's gave him good contract extension and he made getting his degree higher priority than fulfilling his contract obligations.

    And besides mis-handling his degree schedule, Ty also should've had his hip surgery
    much, much sooner then he had it.

    Still, there would be no harm in bringing him to Foxborough for a workout/physical,
    should he be released during the next few weeks.

    I agree with the captain. He's clearly going to be cut. Its not a matter of if, but when. There's no harm in bringing him back in and kicking the tires. Now that he's a college graduate he might be smart enough to realize that $1MM is more than he'd make for working 6 months anywhere else.

    Of course he'd have to be health and in great shape. We heeded to draft a 3-4 DE, and we didn't. Now if Ty is healthy we can have one we know can do the job, on the cheap for a year, and draft one next year. For Ty will be a chance to come home and chase one more ring before moving on to the next phase of his life.....graduate school.

    Ty Warren was a great player.... until he got the big contract. Since then footbally has been really low on his priority list. Considering the ammount of money Warren has beeen paid over the last few years for absoltuely nothing, he certainly shouldn't be pissed at what the Broncos are proposing. I doubt the Pats bring him in even for the vet minimum, and I don't blame them.

    agreed, Ty left poorly, He could have waited to get his degree, his contract was structured so that the off season workouts would be well compensated so that as the vet leader he would be there. He then needed surgery and put it off so that he would be unavailable during the playoff run.

    After missing the offseason, he should have had the surgery when the pats asked. He worked hard, got his payday then did not put the same dedication
    to the team that he did to earn the contract.
