Dorsey Says Chiefs Haven't Talked To Him About Playing Nose Tackle

All that talk about Glenn Dorsey potentially moving to nose tackle? Well, no one's told him about it. Dorsey told reporters today that no one inside the Chiefs organization has approached him about playing nose tackle this season.

That said, he didn't rule out a possible change, Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com reports,  if that's what the coaches want.

"If that's what they want me to do, then I'm going to do it," Dorsey said. "I love playing football for the Chiefs and I want to win. That's our biggest thing, we want to win this year. If that's what they see fit for me, then that's what I'll do and if they leave me on the outside then that's what I'll do too."    

It's also possible Dorsey has been approached about playing nose tackle and was told to zip it. We're not sure. But publicly he's indicating that's not the case.

Dorsey did go onto say that he doesn't think he'd have to put on weight to play nose tackle -- if that's what the coaching staff wants.

"I don't think that I would have to be heavier to play nose," Dorsey said. "It's all about leverage, footwork and recognizing what the guy in front of you is trying to do to you. You don't have to be the biggest dude on earth to play it, at least not in my opinion."    

If the Chiefs have any intention of having him play nose tackle for an extended period of time, you'd think they'd start giving him some work there. Then again, it's only May.
