Chiefs Sign RFA S Daniel Sorensen To Four-Year, $16M Deal

According to Mike Garafolo, the Chiefs have signed restricted free agent S Daniel Sorensen to a four-year, $16 million contract with nearly half of this guaranteed. Sorensen also gets another $2 million in incentives.

Tom Pelissero of USA Today previously reported that the Chiefs were working on an extension Sorensen and it looks like they managed to get the deal done in the end.

The Chiefs placed a second-round tender on Sorensen on Wednesday that would have cost them $2.746 million for the 2017 season.

Sorensen, 27, wound up signing on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young back in May of 2014. He was unfortunately among their final roster cuts during his rookie season, but later signed on to their practice squad.

The Chiefs brought Sorensen back on a one-year, exclusive rights deal last year.

In 2016, Sorensen appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs and recorded 63 tackles, three interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, two forced fumbles, three recoveries and six pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 74 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
