Former BYU safety Daniel Sorensen spends NFL cut-down day at the temple
Last Saturday was a dark day for many prospective NFL players as teams finalized their 53-man rosters, leaving many jobless.
One of the players forced to sweat things out was former BYU safety Daniel Sorensen. Sorensen went undrafted last May but signed a free-agent deal with Kansas City.
With regular Chief starting safety Eric Berry dealing with a heel injury throughout training camp, Sorensen got the opportunity to impress his team as he started all the Kansas City preseason contests. Even with that experience it wasn’t a sure thing that Sorensen would be on the Chiefs’ opening-day roster.
According to espn.com’s Elizabeth Merrill, Sorensen didn’t spend his Saturday anxiously waiting by his phone to hear of his fate. Instead, Sorensen and his wife, Whitney, in an attempt to ease their minds, spent the afternoon at the Kansas City Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
After serving in the temple (and after waiting for his phone to cool off from being in the hot car) Sorensen received some good news.
He had made the Chiefs’ final roster.
