Glenn Dorsey Likely To Stay With Chiefs, According To Report

We told you a few days ago that the Kansas City Chiefs were trying to re-sign DE Glenn Dorsey and new report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports indicates that the Chiefs are likely to succeed in retaining the former LSU Tiger.

From La Canfora:

The Kansas City Chiefs are still working hard to retain their own players and are making progress on a new deal for defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey, according to league sources.

Dorsey is one of several talented high picks who had yet to reach their potential under the prior regime in Kansas City, and it appeared he would be departing.

At the time Dorsey was placed on IR late in the season, he and the team were bracing for a departure. But with Andy Reid and John Dorsey now running the club, an emphasis has been placed on keeping young talent and trying to better utilize it within a scheme and personnel fit.

La Canfora added the following on Twitter:

This is more excellent news for Chiefs fans. Dorsey is a very solid player and if KC can retain him, the team will have one less hole to fill in fee agency and the draft.

While some feel Dorsey is better suited to the 4-3 defense, there is some buzz that the Chiefs, under new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, may run some hybrid sets that include 4-3 alignments.

While Dorsey’s agent is now free to negotiate with other teams, free agency doesn’t officially begin until Tuesday. That gives the Chiefs a little more time to get the deal done.

What do you think, Addicts? Are you excited that the Chiefs might bring Dorsey back?
