Chiefs rumors: Daniel Sorensen could receive extension soon
By Matt Conner
The Kansas City Chiefs are busy behind the scenes in free agency working on extension to keep their own players. The latest is safety Daniel Sorensen.
If the rumors are true, the Kansas City Chiefs will soon have extended two of their safeties—and Ron Parker is already secured on the roster. Days after signing Eric Berry to a shiny new extension, general manager John Dorsey is working on one for his teammate Daniel Sorensen.
The Chiefs recently gave Sorensen a second round qualifying offer (or tender) that allows the Chiefs the right of first refusal to match any offer sheet with another team that Sorensen might sign. But Dorsey is keen to keep that from even happening apparently by giving Sorensen a deal to keep him in Kansas City for the foreseeable future.
It’s a good move for Dorsey to lock him up considering how well Sorensen played last season, showing off a playmaking ability in all facets of the game, from a nose for the ball to some pass rushing skills. Sorensen is a sure tackler who has blossomed under the Chiefs coaches, so rewarding him to stay for a while longer makes a lot of sense.
Sorensen has played in all 16 games the last two seasons and earns many defensive snaps in the Chiefs sub packages. He had 63 total tackles last season, 2 forced fumbles and 3 interceptions last season.
