Chiefs to use second-round tender on Daniel Sorensen

The Chiefs spent big money to keep one safety, and had to spend a little extra to keep a spare one.

According to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will use the second-round tender on restricted free agent safety Daniel Sorensen.

That’s going to pay him $2.746 million, and likely keep anyone from trying to poach the former undrafted free agent. They’d have gotten no compensation if they used the low tender of $1.797 million and he was signed away.

Sorensen was a valuable contributor as a third safety/linebacker hybrid/special teamer for the Chiefs, so they wanted to make sure to keep him around.

They also put the low tender on kicker Cairo Santos. He was also undrafted, but they can always match any offer he gets if they want to keep him.

    Dirty Dan. He’s developed into a Good player for the Chiefs. Glad we will be keeping him around.

    Take Watson in the first round.
    Move up if you have to.

    I love him. He’s an interception artist in the redzone too. I don’t have the data to back that up but just from watching all the chiefs games it seems like it. That is probably more money than anyone else would pay for him though
