Former BYU Football safety Daniel Sorensen signs contract extension with Kansas City Chiefs

Sorensen inks 4-year deal with Chiefs

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Former BYU safety Daniel Sorensen has signed a 4-year, $16 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Sorensen was a restricted free agent.

Undrafted out of BYU, Sorensen had a career year in his third season with the Chiefs. He played in all 16 games, finishing with 63 tackles, 3 fumble recoveries, 2 forced fumbles, and 3 interceptions (including a pick 6 versus the New Orleans Saints). Sorensen’s seven takeaways put him second on one of the best defenses in the NFL. He was also a special teams force, much like during his college days with the Cougars.

Sorensen also had 6 tackles and a sack in that win over the Saints.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ head coach is of course former BYU offensive lineman Andy Reid.
