Chiefs Working On Extension For RFA S Daniel Sorensen

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the Chiefs are working on an extension for restricted free agent S Daniel Sorensen.

The Chiefs placed a second-round tender on Sorensen on Wednesday, so the team clearly wants to keep him in Kansas City.

The second-round tender will cost the Chiefs $2.746 million for the 2017 season and net them a second-round pick if he receives an offer sheet from another team and they elect to pass on matching it.

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.
