As the Broncos continue to try and work out a deal to move former first-round draft selection Gerard Warren, a few teams that were thought to be in the mix for his services have reportedly told the Broncos they are not interested. Those two teams are the Giants and Colts, who neither appear to have much of an interest for the defensive tackle. On the other hand, today’s Denver Post is reporting there are three teams that have inquired about Warren’s services, that being the Saints, Redskins and Titans.
The paper is reporting that a team that is not being identified offered Denver a starter, but it was a starting position that the Broncos were not in need of. The two positions that Denver would like to grab for Warren would be either linebacker or wide out. If it’s a draft choice, the would accpept a second-day draft pick for him.
Warren did not go with Denver to San Fran as they took on the 49’ers in their first preseason game last night. If a deal for him does not get done today, he will not go with the team to Dallas either for their next preseason game on Saturday with the Cowboys. Coach Mike Shanahan said last night he thought a deal for Warren was all but done, but that the deal fell through.
For now, the Broncos started Amon Gordon alongside Jimmy Kennedy on the defensive line. Gordon was a practice squad player last season, and was told on Sunday that he would start vs San Fran. There were also some rumblings that the Broncos were interested in Giants DE Michael Strahan, but according to the paper, that is just a rumor and it’s not true whatsoever.
