It was a busy day at Gillette Stadium off-the-field, as hours after cutting punter Josh Miller the Patriots and defensive end Ty Warren agreed to a contract extension through 2011.

Reported first by Adam Schefter of the NFL network and Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe, Warren, 26, had a contract which was supposed to run out following the 2008 season. But after a 2006 campaign where Warren had career highs in tackles (56), pass deflections (four) and sacks (7.5), the Patriots were wise to re-sign the fifth year man out of Texas A+M.
Terms of the deal have not been released, we’ll have details when they come along.
