Eye Black Challenger - Ty Warren

Patriots DE Ty Warren is foregoing a $250,000 off season workout bonus to finish his degree and be a role model to his daughters.

"I try to put the kids in the best educational system possible and I think there is something to be said for their father, who has been blessed to play in the NFL and do something he's loved to do, going back and finishing what he started," Warren said from the campus of Texas A&M. "In the big picture, I think it's important for me to do what I'm doing. I can sacrifice that bonus for that."

This marks the first time in Warren's eight seasons with New England that he will not attend any significant parts of the offseason program. He's had other offseasons in which he's trained in Florida with noted strength coach Tom Shaw before returning to Foxborough, but this year he doesn't plan to be back except for mandatory sessions prior to training camp.
