Eric Andrew Warfield (born March 3, 1976) is a former professional football cornerback. He was drafted by the Chiefs in the seventh round of the 1998 NFL Draft. He played college football at Nebraska. Warfield also spent a portion of the 2006 offseason with the New England Patriots.

Professional career[edit]

Kansas City Chiefs[edit]

Warfield finished the 2004 NFL season with 45 tackles after three straight years of over 70. He also intercepted four passes (one for a touchdown), and forced two fumbles in 2004.

In 2005, Warfield struggled with legal issues that threatened his NFL career. On March 3, he was convicted of a third DUI charge and was sentenced to 10 days in jail and 80 days of house arrest.[1] In the wake of this incident, the NFL suspended Warfield for the first four games of the 2005 season.[2]

New England Patriots[edit]

On April 3, 2006, Warfield was signed by the New England Patriots but was released shortly after training camp, never playing in a regular season game for the team.
