Trade to Oakland a surprise
Defensive tackle Gerard Warren knew he was on his way out of Denver, but he did not think he would end up badly. “Oakland was never brought up. I thought they were talking about Washington and Indianapolis,” Gerard Warren stated, the day after being traded from the Denver Broncos to the Oakland Raiders for a conditional draft pick. “It was a surprise, especially being a rival.” Gerard Warren spent his first practice working with the scout team, getting acclimated to a different defensive scheme. “We don't have a sense of how ready he is,” said Coach Lane Kiffin after practice. “He looked OK, but I have to go back and watch film before I make a judgment on it. Obviously, that's a lot different playing a lot of plays, but we're going to try to push him through and try to play him this week.”
The Oakland Raiders play host to the team of St. Louis Rams on Friday in the third exhibition game of Oakland. It was the second time Gerard Warren has been traded by a team that signed him for big money. He was the No.3 overall pick by Cleveland Browns in the 2001 draft and stayed with the team from 2001 – 2004, one selection before LaDainian Tomlinson but was dealt to Denver Broncos for a fourth-round pick in 2005.
The Denver Broncos thought enough of Gerard Warren to sign him to a profitable extension; he’s already collected a reported $6.5 million in two seasons, only to send him to the Oakland Raiders after changing defensive schemes. Denver gets a fifth-round pick, if Gerard Warren makes the 53-man roster and nothing if he does not. He said Denver switched to a two-gap scheme in which the defensive tackle ties up offensive linemen in order for linebackers to come in and make plays. According to Warren his strength is as an aggressive one-gap player in a system such as the one Rob Ryan runs in Oakland. “I wish we could have done this earlier in the year so I could have been acclimated to the system and came in running on all cylinders,” said Warren. “Right now I'm playing catch-up.”
Defensive tackle Warren Sapp, who said Monday he was not sure if Gerard Warren could make the Raiders top 8 defensive linemen, offered words of encouragement.. “He said just go to work, baby. You're in Oakland now,” Warren said. According to him, he has modeled his game after Sapp since he was in high school in Florida and Sapp was in college at Miami.
In addition to the updates, Lane Kiffin said he would name his starting quarterback. Safety Donovin Darius practiced and could play against St. Louis; safety Hiram Eugene would not play this week with a wrist injury but will not need surgery, according to Lane Kiffin.
It was a surprise as Gerard Warren was traded to the team of Oakland Raiders. From now on it will be a new stage in Warren’s life with new teammates and new superiors and/or coaches. Gerard Warren will be with the Oakland Raiders, sharing with their great determination and working together to succeed in their games.
