Ty Warren heading to Broncos

Ty Warren has landed squarely on his feet in the Rockies. The longtime Patriots DT, released last week, signed with the Broncos for a reported two years and 10 million. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who is apparently answering phones at the NFL offices as all transaction news comes in, he'll get 2.5 million guaranteed. "I never had a doubt," Warren answered me by text message when I reached out to say it was good to see him land somewhere quickly. "I am truly blessed."The Broncos have become a catch basin for former Patriots in recent years thanks in part to former Pats OC Josh McDaniels having been the head coach. Prior to Warren heading out there, Jarvis Green was a pickup by Denver prior to last season. He signed for four years and 20 million last March and then was cut in September. Tight end Daniel Graham signed there as a free agent in 2007 (he recently moved on to Tennessee and is now 32). And, of course, Le Kevin Smith (French for, "The Kevin Smith) was dealt there for a seventh-rounder in 2007.

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
