The Kansas City Chiefs have wrapped up a deal to bring back safety, special teamer and sub-package linebacker Daniel Sorensen on a one-year deal. His contract appears to be quite the bargain too.

Yesterday, Kansas City Star beat writer Herbie Teope reported that the team was closing in on a deal to re-sign Sorensen for the 2021 NFL season. Today, he reported back that the deal had been agreed upon and he added some important information surrounding Sorensen’s contract details

According to Teope, Sorensen will earn a $2.46 million in 2021, all fully guaranteed. The Athletic’s Nate Taylor confirmed this report shortly after, including the fully guaranteed detail.

Sorensen just finished his second contract in Kansas City, spending a total of nine seasons with the team. He had signed a four-year extension worth $16 million with the Chiefs back in 2016. Since 2018, Sorensen has made at least $3.6 million in guaranteed salary annually. So coming off what was considered to be a career year, Sorensen now will earn considerably less than he did just a season ago.

Perhaps Sorensen’s free agent market in a year with a lesser salary-cap number wasn’t as strong as he’d expected it to be. This could also signal that he wanted to remain with his coaches and teammates in Kansas City. He’s been a vital part in each of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl runs, making key plays in the divisional round of the playoffs against both the Houston Texans and the Cleveland Browns, respectively. Now, he’ll get a chance to contribute toward getting back to a third Super Bowl.
