But they apparently want to keep him for longer than one year.
According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Chiefs want to “bang out” an extension for Sorensen soon. (And #bangout will go into our free agent hashtag Hall of Fame with “asexpected and #barringalatesnag”.)
Sorensen’s a valuable part of their defense and special teams, playing as a third safety and a hybrid linebacker. And a longer deal would provide the former undrafted rookie some security beyond the $2.746 million he was set to make this year.
