The Jacksonville Jaguars can’t neglect their safety room this offseason.
Daniel Sorensen’s tenure in Kansas City has been an interesting one. After playing just 31 defensive snaps in 2014, his playing time steadily went up before decreasing once again. In seven years, he’s played in 94 games and logged 356 total tackles (16 for a loss), 3.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, 25 passes defensed and ten interceptions.
Last season, Sorensen started 11 games (second-most in his career) and registered 91 total tackles, five pass deflections, two forced fumbles, and three interceptions. Although the BYU product may not garner as much attention as fellow safeties, Justin Simmons and Anthony Harris, in free agency, there should still be a market for him.
Sorensen won’t show up on many highlights, but he’s the kind of player that does his job more often than not. Jarrod Wilson should start at one safety spot for the Jaguars in 2021. However, it’s uncertain who will play next to him. Josh Jones started 13 games at safety last season, but Jacksonville could use an upgrade at the position, and signing Sorensen makes sense.
Daniel Thomas displayed flashes of talent before an arm injury cut his rookie season short. The Jaguars could sign Sorensen and have him compete with the sophomore for the starting spot. Regardless of who wins the battle, the Jaguars would have a solid safety room.
