Santa Clara, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey has signed a two-year contract extension through the 2016 season.
Dorsey is entering his second year with the 49ers, but could miss a majority of the 2014 campaign with a biceps injury he suffered during training camp in early August.
"Glenn is a true pro who has quickly become a valued contributor to our organization both on and off the field," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. "He is a quick study and a very good football player that has earned this extension, and we look forward to his future contributions."
Dorsey joined the Niners in 2013 on a two-year contract and switched from defensive end to the interior of the line. He started 13 of the 16 games he played last season and notched 41 tackles with two sacks.
The 29-year-old LSU product spent his first five seasons in Kansas City after the Chiefs made him the fifth overall pick of the 2008 draft. He has 279 career tackles and six sacks in 82 NFL games, 78 of which have been starts.
