Ty Warren’s new contract update

As reported by the Boston Globe’s Mike Reiss in his Reiss’s Pieces blog last night, defensive end Ty Warren‘s contract extension is actually a seven year extension thru the year 2013, not the five year deal previously reported.

The overall contract is worth $18 million in guarentees, which could have been much less than what Warren could have received if he had become a free agent after the 2008 season.

Warren – entering his fifth NFL season – showed marked improvement last season, totaling 84 tackles (third best on the team), 7.5 sacks (tied for most on team) and four pass deflections. He’s also as durable as defensive ends come, playing in all but one game in his four year career and starting 47 of the last 48 regular season games.

The Patriots look like they have decided in this case to lock up a star in the making before he becomes too expensive. Just a couple years ago, fellow defensive end Richard Seymour was hoping for a big payday and actually held out of training camp. After the Deion Branch holdout last season and the Asante Samuel situation this season, the Pats wanted to make sure they solidified their bookends for the next few years.
