The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported weeks ago that the Packers liked John Dorsey as a possible successor to Ted Thompson in Green Bay, a story that came out of nowhere for Chiefs fans. There was a lot of speculation but few facts or on the record quotes about this.
Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has now chimed in.
Hunt: I saw the report (from Ian Rapport on Packers’ potential interest in Dorsey). There was no truth to that story.— Soren Petro (@SorenPetro) February 3, 2017
Long time reporters in Green Bay thought there was something to this story. It doesn't sound made up. What was wrong about Rapoport’s story, according to Green Bay reporters, was that Dorsey remains under contract through 2017. The story suggested his deal was up before the 2017 season.
For Chiefs fans, this is what we care about. Clark wants to keep Dorsey and Andy Reid together.
Hunt: The relationship between Dorsey and Reid has worked even better than I thought it would. Hope to continue that into the future.— Soren Petro (@SorenPetro) February 3, 2017
There were reports of an extension for Reid. Here's to hoping we are soon reading about an extension for Dorsey, who has done a great job in his time in KC.
