Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. tweeted an interesting thought Sunday when he wrote he thinks Kansas City free-agent defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey would be a fine fit in Denver or Oakland.

Williamson went on to explain that he thinks Dorsey will be much better in a 4-3 defense and he thinks the No. 5 overall pick in the 2008 draft could shine with his second team.

Dorsey isn’t expected to return to the Chiefs. He has had his ups and downs in Kansas City, and he never lived up to his draft status.

I reached out to Williamson to get his thoughts on why he thinks Dorsey can be a good player and why he could fit well in Denver or Oakland. Both of those teams run a 4-3 defense and both teams need interior defensive linemen.

“I always felt like Dorsey got a raw deal,” Williamson said. “He was an outstanding up field penetrating DT at LSU and was drafted as that, but then Kansas City switched to a 3-4 and took much of that away from him. He then added weight for this new spot and never really fit. I am not saying that he is Warren Sapp or will now live up to his high draft slot, but he does get the opportunity to go to a team now that better suits his skill set. Denver and Oakland were two that came to mind, along with Carolina and Dallas, that could really get more out of him due to scheme.”

Dorsey will likely come fairly cheaply, so it will be interesting to see if he may get another opportunity in the AFC West.
