Warren (6-3, 252) has spent his entire career with the Steelers since originally signing with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of North Carolina in 2005. Warren has served as the team’s long-snapper in 133 regular-season games and nine postseason contests. He has played in 64 consecutive regular-season games.
