It went as expected. There were no late snags. The Chiefs, were, in fact, able to #bangout a deal for safety Daniel Sorensen.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Chiefs gave their versatile third safety a four-year deal worth $16 million, with nearly hafl the amount guaranteed. There are another $2 million worth of incentives in the deal.

They had tendered the restricted free agent at the second-round level, which would have paid him $2.746 million this year, but they made it clear they wanted to keep him around beyond a year.

With Eric Berry locked up long-term and Ron Parker, Sorensen gives them a stable middle to the secondary, and his ability to contribute in multiple packages and special teams is clearly something they value.
