Daniel Sorensen, SS, Kansas City
One of the top needs of the Saints this offseason is a safety. With the potential departure of Marcus Williams and/or Malcolm Jenkins, the Saints will be left with a need at this position. Sorensen could fill that need at a reasonable price.
Sorensen led the Chiefs in tackles this year from the safety position. That proves that he is able to move up in the defense and put pressure on the run and the quarterback other than just roaming the middle of the field looking for an interception.
That is a skill in a safety that you don’t see often. In fact, with his 91 tackles, he would have tied or out-tackled both the Saints’ safeties. He also deflected five passes and picked the quarterback off three times for one touchdown.
Sorensen is currently on a $4 million per year contract which would be lightyears less than the $9-13 million that Marcus Williams will want. If the Saints were smart, they would be in talks with Sorensen as soon as the market opens up.
