Sorensen signed a four-year, $16 million extension that includes nearly $8 million guaranteed, NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports.
A 2014 UDFA, the 27-year-old Sorensen has only started one game in three NFL seasons, but he's a core special teamer who took advantage of an expanded defensive role to record a career-best 63 tackles in 2016 -- also notching three interceptions, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He'll likely continue to serve as the third safety behind starters Eric Berry and Ron Parker, getting most of his playing time in passing situations.
Sorensen posted a dominant IDP performance Sunday, recording a sack and six tackles (all solo) while intercepting a pass and returning it for a touchdown.
Sorensen was on the field for just 58 percent of the team's snaps in Sunday's contest, but took advantage of the increased opportunity. His play may have earned him more snaps moving forward, but it's unlikely he'll be able to repeat this performance.
Sorensen did not practice Tuesday due to a foot injury, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
The severity of the injury was unspecified and no timeline was given for his return.
