TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Storm is pleased to announce the acquisition of former National Football League offensive lineman Jeremiah Warren.
“In a passing league, protecting the quarterback is the most important part of running an offense,” said vice president of football operations Jeff Gooch. “Jeremiah is a big body with in-game NFL experience. We believe he has the intangibles necessary to help our offensive line succeed.”
Warren (6-foot-3, 325, South Florida) enters his rookie season in the Arena Football League with the Storm. The Panama City, FL native recently played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League, seeing action in several games during the 2015 season.
He began his professional career in 2012 with the New England Patriots when he signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent. He would go on to spend time with Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints and the Cleveland Browns.
Warren played collegiately at South Florida from 2008-11. He started in 38-of-45 games on the offensive line, earning an All-Big East selection for his performance in his senior season. Warren helped anchor an offense that was ranked in the top five of several offensive categories including, total offense, rushing yards and passing yards.
