Warren hasn't heard from Pats on possible pay cut

After news broke Monday nightthat the Jets plan to lop some high-salaried veterans in a salary purge, I wondered if the Patriots had similar plans.Nick Kaczur's already been mentioned as a guy the Patriots are targeting to either have take a pay cut or hit the bricks. What about Ty Warren? The veteran defensive end is down to make 3.1 million in 2011 and will havea cap hit close to 6 million (hat tip, Miguel).Warren, who's down in Texasworking on coming back from season-ending hip surgery last August,told me Tuesday morning he's heard nothing from the Patriots in terms of taking a pay cut. He doesn't think he'd be inclined to take one, either. Tully Banta-Cain (2.3 million salary in 2011) and James Sanders (2.8 million) are the only other players I see as possibilities for pay cut requests.

The Patriots lost another offensive weapon when, days after Rob Gronkowski underwent season-ending back surgery, Danny Amendola hobbled off the field with a foot injury in New England's 26-10 win over the Rams on Sunday.

On Monday morning, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the extent of the injury:

Amendola's absence creates an immediate issue on special teams, but also thins the wide-receiver corps as the team heads down the final stretch and attempts to secure home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

SEATTLE - Behind Thomas Rawls bouncing off and through tacklers and a big-play punch from Tyler Lockett, the Seattle Seahawks rediscovered their offensive star power on Sunday night.

It came at a significant cost to their defense.

Rawls ran for 103 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, Lockett took a reverse 75 yards for a score to open the second half and the Seahawks routed the Carolina Panthers 40-7 on Sunday night.
