2014 status still undecided, Dorsey signs through 2016


The 49ers don’t know when or if defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey will play in 2014.  But they do know that they have him under contract through 2016.

The team has announced a two-year extension with Dorsey.

“Glenn is a true pro who has quickly become a valued contributor to our organization both on and off the field,” General Manager Trent Baalke said in a team-issued release.  “He is a quick study and a very good football player that has earned this extension, and we look forward to his future contributions.”

Dorsey may not do much more to earn his 2014 salary, due to a torn biceps suffered in training camp.  Per a league source, the team still is deciding whether to put Dorsey on season-ending injured reserve, to put him on injured reserve with the designation to return, or to carry him on the 53-man roster until he’s ready to play.

Dorsey entered the league in 2008 as the fifth overall pick in the draft.  He signed in 2013 with the 49ers, appearing in all 19 regular-season and postseason games, with 15 total starts as the replacement to nose tackle Ian Williams, who suffered a broken leg in Week Two.

    This must thrill Alex Boone…

    Smart move to buy low on him while he’s injured since it’s an injury he’ll easily fully recover from.

    Boone messed himself up by not showing up. He’s not gonna get a tear it up deal , he should just accept the extension on the table or play his rear end off for a new 2016 contract.

    Why are the shehawks always concern about our news… IT NERVES, they know were a much better team! The NFC game proves it, especially when we had to play them and the refs. You know you guys were out played! So, continue on our site to see what were doing! lol

    Hmm see that Boone ya coulda gotten a piece of the pie….. Now Kap, Staley, and Dorsey all have new deals and they are hoping to have Crabtree locked by week 1. Too bad so sad. Enjoy that million in fines and hopefully a trade to an abyss or a full year on the bench.

    If his status is uncertain then that man is a savage. How many players have gotten paid there since Alex Boone decided to hold out? 3? More. Seems I have seen a few of em lately.

    Congrats to Dorsey and good move by a flailing franchise.
