Most recently, Warren was the COO of the Minnesota Vikings and helped the franchise secure a new stadium while being named a Super Bowl host site. Warren worked with the Vikings in from 2005-2019 in other capacities. Before Minnesota, Warren was with the St. Louis Rams (1997-2000) and the Detroit Lions (2001-2003).

The Bears are currently on the outside looking in for the 2022 NFL Playoffs. Over at the FanDuel SportsBook, Chicago is a six-point underdog to the Lions.
