Even though he didn’t play in the Cleveland game, Glenn Dorsey tied his rookie season tackle total of 48 two weeks ago against the Bills.
Dorsey has been a nice surprise this season for the Chiefs. The word out of Arrowhead earlier this year was that the Chiefs were at a loss on what to do with Dorsey because they weren’t sure if he could make the transition from guard to defensive end. At one point it was rumored the Chiefs were open to trading Dorsey.
Last I heard the Chiefs were quite please with the progress Dorsey has made throughout the season and they now believe he could be the long term answer at DE. That is good news for Scott Pioli because if Tyson Jackson continues to progress, the Chiefs may have their bookend DE’s for the next 10 years.
The development of the ends should give the Chiefs more wiggle room as they try to fill holes at nose tackle and linebacker.
We’ll have more on the development of Tyson Jackson later in the day so keep it here at Arrowhead Addict.
