BOSTON (CBS) – The Patriots defensive line will have a familiar veteran back in the fold, according to reports.
New England is set to re-sign veteran D-lineman Gerard Warren, according to CSSNE.com.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but it is expected to be for one-year and roughly the veteran’s minimum.
Warren played 12 games for New England last season, finishing with 12 tackles and one sack. An 11-year veteran, Warren has spent the last two seasons with the Patriots seeing action in 28 games.
The Patriots did not draft an interior lineman during over the weekend, so the return of the 330-pound Warren will help bulk up the line a bit more.
