New Saints RG Larry Warford's four-year deal is worth $34 million, and includes $17 million guaranteed.
Interior linemen are getting paid this year, and Warford was one of the five best on the open market. A starter since arriving as a third-round pick in 2013, Warford has stabilized after some inconsistency, and had a strong 2016. He's a sensible addition for the Saints' latest "get tough" effort. The Saints are putting together a top-five NFL offensive line. Mar 10 - 1:05 PM

Saints agreed to terms with RG Larry Warford, formerly of the Lions.

The Saints made it a priority to find a right guard in free agency. They flirted with Kevin Zeitler, but he ultimately picked the Browns, becoming the league's highest-paid guard at $12 million per year. Warford isn't a bad consolation prize. A mauler at 6'3/317, he was Pro Football Focus' No. 19 guard last season out of 77 qualifiers, grading out well both in the run game and pass pro. Warford's addition likely means the end of longtime RG Jahri Evans' career in New Orleans.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein predicts impending free agent RG Larry Warford will not re-sign with the Lions.

With both Warford and RT Riley Reiff headed to free agency, the Lions could end up losing the entire right side of their offensive line. If Warford does hit the open market, he is expected to command at least $9 million per season. Warford is Rotoworld's No. 4 available interior lineman.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports free agent RG Larry Warford is expected to fetch $9 million-plus per year on the open market.

Warford's biggest asset is his youth. He doesn't turn 26 until this summer. Warford and Kevin Zeitler are the top two free agent guards, with T.J. Lang also in the mix, though Lang is going on 30. Warford was Pro Football Focus' No. 19 guard last season, receiving plus marks for his run blocking. At $9 million annually, he'd be one of the NFL's highest-paid guards.

Free agent RG Larry Warford is expected to test the open market.

Free agent RG Larry Warford indicated he isn't interested in a hometown discount to stay in Detroit.

Warford is rightfully looking to get paid after a rock-solid season at right guard with the Lions. "I mean, I’ve got my family to think about too," said Warford, who is getting married this offseason. "Starting a family is awesome, and that factors in." Still only 25 years old, Warford is likely to emerge from the free agency period as one of the highest paid guards in football.

Free agent RG Larry Warford expects to test the open market.

Warford had a bounce back year after an injury filled 2015, missing just one game and grading as a top-25 guard at PFF. He should draw interest from multiple teams this offseason. Detroit has Laken Tomlinson as Warford's potential replacement.

Lions RG Larry Warford's starting job will be "on a short leash" this season.

The 65th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Warford looked like a future All Pro his first two seasons before enduring an injury-riddled third campaign. Now entering his contract year, Warford has a lot at stake. He's 25 years old (in June) with dominant drive-blocking potential and will get paid handsomely if his season goes well. Journeyman Geoff Schwartz will push Warford in camp.

Lions RG Larry Warford (ankle) expects to practice this week.

Warford has been sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Lions' second preseason game. He said he was still dealing with soreness in the ankle, but added, "It's coming along pretty well." Even if Warford is able to get in a couple practices this week, it is possible the Lions give him another week to get completely healthy. Manny Ramirez played well at right guard Week 1.
