The San Francisco 49ers have announced a two-year contract extension with injured defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey. The extension will keep Dorsey in the Bay Area until the end of the 2016 season.
In his first season with the Niners’, Dorsey was quite productive. He appeared in all sixteen regular season games — recording forty-one combined tackles and two sacks — while also appearing in three postseason games.
Coming off of a wasted 2012 season in Kansas City, Dorsey was able to bounce back quite nicely. Dorsey has received high praise throughout the organization, and was even named the 49ers Defensive Blue Collar Player of the Year for his on the field accomplishments last season.
“Glenn is a true pro who has quickly become a valued contributor to our organization both on and off the field,” San Francisco GM Trent Baalke said. “He is a quick study and a very good football player that has earned this extension, and we look forward to his future contributions.”
While Dorsey received an extension, his efforts may not be seen on the football field this year. Earlier this month Dorsey suffered a torn bicep, leaving his status for the 2014′ season in question.
Confident that Dorsey will come back to full health — the Niners’ made a smart deal — locking up an impact player at a very low-cost.
