FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick announced moments ago that the Patriots have re-signed defensive lineman Gerard Warren, who played in all 16 games (and started 10) for New England last season.
Warren, who turned 33 last week, was signed as a free agent prior to the 2010 season after spending the first nine years of his career in Cleveland (2001-04), Denver (2005-06) and Oakland (2007-09). He had 16 tackles, with 10 assisted tackles, and 3.5 sacks last year.
Belichick also confirmed the release of safety Brandon McGowan, which was first reported Sunday.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Jay Ajayi tied an NFL record by surpassing 200 yards rushing for the second game in a row, helping the Miami Dolphins rally past the Buffalo Bills 28-25 Sunday.
Ajayi rushed for 214 yards in 29 carries after totaling 204 yards a week earlier in a win over Pittsburgh. He scored on a 4-yard run , and busted a 53-yarder when the Dolphins were pinned at their 3 and trailing in the fourth quarter.
The Dolphins (3-4) used an extra lineman much of the time to clear big holes for Ajayi, who tied the NFL record for consecutive 200-yard games held by O.J. Simpson, Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams.
