Broncos trade Warren to Oakland

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Monday traded defensive tackle Gerard Warren to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for an undisclosed pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, head coach Mike Shanahan announced.

Warren, the third overall pick in the 2001 draft by Cleveland, spent the last two seasons in Denver, making 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks. He revitalized his career with the Broncos after struggling through four seasons with the Browns.

But Warren apparently didn't fit new defensive coach Jim Bates' scheme, which requires tackles who can hold their positions instead of penetrating the backfield.
