Veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren was a solid performer for the Patriots in 2010, playing in all 16 regular-season games with 10 starts. He is set for unrestricted free agency when the 2011 league year ultimately begins and some have asked the question, "Will Warren be back in New England?"
The Patriots didn't select a defensive end in the draft, although they signed veteran defensive lineman Marcus Stroud earlier in the offseason.
Warren's name surfaced in the news today when Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports wrote on a group of at least 25 players "who could be forced to divest and face discipline from the league in connection with an Alabama bingo and entertainment operation that is hoping to re-open late this month or in July."
Warren and former Patriot Adalius Thomas are among the players listed in the report.
