Chiefs making progress on new deal for Glenn Dorsey

The Kansas City Chiefs are still working hard to retain their own players and are making progress on a new deal for defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey, according to league sources.

Dorsey is one of several talented high picks who had yet to reach their potential under the prior regime in Kansas City, and it appeared he would be departing.

At the time Dorsey was placed on IR late in the season, he and the team were bracing for a departure. But with Andy Reid and John Dorsey now running the club, an emphasis has been placed on keeping young talent and trying to better utilize it within a scheme and personnel fit.

Kansas City has reworked the deal of Tyson Jackson, extended Dwayne Bowe, franchised Branden Albert and, at this point, it would not be surprising if Dorsey ended up re-signing there before  the market opening Tuesday afternoon.
