INDIANAPOLIS - "Big Money" is about to become new currency in Denver.

The Browns and Broncos have agreed on a trade that would send Gerard Warren to the Broncos for a fourth-round draft choice in the 2005 draft, a league source said Monday as the scouting combine was winding down.

The trade cannot be consummated until Wednesday, the first day trades in the NFL can be made in 2005. Wednesday is also the first day of free agency.

 

 

Looks to be a bit of shuffeling on the Lake.

Good trade for Denver. Bust or not in the NFL, you don't get to be the #3 overall pick without some talent.. for only a 4th rounder, it's a great gamble to see if getting out of Cleveland will revive his career.

Actually the trade isn't as good for the Bronco's as it seems upon first blush.

 

Yes the Bronco's get a former 1st rounder (and the #3 at that) for only a 4th round pick.

 

Sounds great doesn't it?

 

Well there's the little thing of the Bronco's absorbing his contract. That was a condition on this trade that Browns demanded. The Bronco's get Warren and take his entire contract off the Brown's books for their 4th.

 

Not quite as good as some trades, where the original team is still responsible for a portion of the contract, but it still doesn't sound too bad, right? After all, it's not an outrageous contract they're absorbing.

 

But this is where the downside comes in.

 

Warren refuses to sign any contract extension or new contract. He wants to be a UFA next year, so he can go for the "Big Money". He has already informed Bronco's management, through his agent, to not even bother offering him either an extension or new contract.

 

So basically the Bronco's gave up their 4th round pick and absorbed the full costs of the existing contract, for a player that in all probability, they will only have for one year.

 

The trades not looking quite so good for the Bronco's with that little bit of omitted info now out in the light, is it?

Wow. That sucks. Amazing that a guy like Warren who has done nothing in the NFL still thinks he can get big bucks in free agency.

 

Another side note. Apparently one of Denver's Dline coaches worked with Warren in the past which is a big reason why they brought him over to Denver. He may not want to sign now, but Denver players generally take care of their own. He may change his tune after awhile. (I know, wishful thinking)
