For the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s business as unusual. With “nobody home” to help tend to the business of bringing in players who become available, the Chiefs could be missing out on some gems while they’re waiting for owner Clark Hunt to hire a replacement for general manager John Dorsey, a man who was constantly “at-it” when it comes to turning the roster.
One such case is the UN-retirement of ILB Zach Orr, previously from the Baltimore Ravens. Since Orr was an undrafted free agent, he is free to sign with any team but his time in Baltimore was productive, once he got his chance. In 2016, Orr had 133 tackles playing next to C.J. Mosley with 3 INTs to boot. Orr retired on January 20th of this year from one diagnosis a doctor had of him resulting from a congenital condition showing a narrowing of the spine. After seeking out several other doctor’s opinions and speaking with a college player who has been playing with the same condition, Orr has decided to UN-retire.
So, with the Kansas City Chiefs needing an excellent inside linebacker — and who doesn’t — just who is still in the office… or at least on vacation (but still employed by the team) ready to make contact with a player of Orr’s caliber.
I’m afraid the answer is… no one. Of course, we have no idea if Dorsey would have “liked” the guy but I saw him interviewed and he seems like a terrific young man and the kind of person any team would want on their roster.
The odd and unusual timing of John Dorsey’s firing has placed the Chiefs in an peculiar position during a time of year when many GMs are on vacation… but still available to bring a player in to see if they can improve the team. Even if Hunt hired a new GM today, you’d have to think there would be a transition period but we can only hope that the new “man” in town will be up to snuff by the time the end of training camp presents several opportunities, the kind Dorsey has taken in year’s past.
