Warren was surprisingly released last week and went on a free agency tour that included stops in Denver and the Houston Texans. He was scheduled to visit the Chiefs today (though I can't confirm whether he made that visit or not) but ended up choosing the Broncos.
The cost of Ty Warren: $10 million over two years with $2.5 million guaranteed.
Warren's one of those guys that I thought the Chiefs should bring in simply because he's a good player and understands what the Chiefs are trying to do defensively.
At the same time, they have a pair of top five picks at defensive end. Who do you replace with Warren? Dorsey, who made a heck of a leap last year to turn into a solid 3-4 defensive end? Or Jackson, who we're hoping makes a leap in year three?
In the end, the Chiefs didn't get him but they will be seeing him twice a year. I'm not exactly thrilled to see Richard Seymour and Ty Warren in the same division.
