Five years ago he was the Chiefs first selection in the 2008 NFL Draft, going in the fifth selection.
On Wednesday, unrestricted free agent Glenn Dorsey agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers on a new contract, becoming the first of the Chiefs free agent list to find employment elsewhere.
No details yet on Dorsey’s deal in San Fran, but early word from the left coast is the Niners want him to play nose tackle in their 3-4 defense. San Francisco lost NT Isaac Sopoaga on Tuesday when he signed with Philadelphia. A natural DT in the 4-3 scheme, it’s a surprise that Dorsey is moving from one 3-4 team to another. For the past 4 years he was asked to play out of position in the Chiefs defense and his production was not what it might have been as a DT in the 4-3 defense.
Dorsey played in 66 games with the Chiefs, making 65 starts. He had 236 career tackles with 4 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 4 recovered fumbles. Last season, calf injuries to both his left and right legs limited him to 4 games before he was placed on the injured-reserve list. That was the final season on the 5-year, $51 million contract he signed as a rookie.
