Warren, 22, originally signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati back in April of last year. After a brief stint on their practice squad, he signed on with the Panthers’ taxi squad in October 2020 for a couple of days.
From there, he joined Washington’s practice squad in December and re-signed to a futures deal. However, the WFT cut him in April.
During his college career, Warren recorded 559 rushing attempts for 2,918 yards (5.2 YPC) and 34 touchdowns, to go along with 51 receptions for 442 yards (8.7 YPC) and three touchdowns.
