Ty Warren cut by Patriots, is 'moving on'

The Patriots are making moves, folks. There's a pair of little trades you may have heard about over the past few days that saw them acquire Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth. And then Friday, there was the release of several big-name veterans.

The Pats announced that they've cut Tully Banta-Cain (as reported/expected), Alge Crumpler, Tony Carter, Ryan Coulson, Marcus Stroud, Nick Kaczur and, most surprisingly, defensive lineman Ty Warren.

The team also announced that they've signed third-round pick Ryan Mallett and fifth-round pick Marcus Cannon.

Warren is obviously the biggest surprise there, and while early speculation seemed to be that he might return to the Patriots on a lesser deal, his statement to the Boston Herald on Friday afternoon tells a very different story.

"I appreciate the Pats through the years," Warren said. "They're doing some things defensively and choose to go in a different direction. I thank the Krafts for the opportunity and drafting me in 2003. It was a pleasure.

"I will be moving on to bigger and better things. We are sorting out and will look forward to wearing a contending NFL team jersey this fall."

Warren was slated to make just south of $6 million in 2011 (thought that wasn't his cap number), missed the entire 2010 season due to injury and appeared headed to the PUP list to start the season.

So it's entirely possible he and Crumpler return at cheaper prices. However, according to Charean Williams of the Dallas Star-Telegram, Warren is interested in "returning home to play for the Cowboys or Texans."

Ty Warren was a good player for the Pats.  He also was good off the field and represented the Patriot way well. This is the part of football that takes the fun out of the game.  Good luck Ty.Cool

You can't say a bad thing about the guy. He was a real good lineman for the Pats for the better part of eight years. Good luck to ya, and I wouldn't mind seeing you back.

Here's a hunch:  Pats cutting Warren to make salary cap room to make run for Asomugha?????

Clearly a salary cap move but I enjoyed him while he was here.  Wish him the best!

Salary cap move that makes sense. Texans might as well sign him but I doubt he'll be "be moving on to bigger and better things". A 30 yo lineman coming off a serious injury in the NFL ain't good. Wish him the best though.
