"I think everybody can see they have a winning formula," Dorsey said on a conference call with reporters. "I'm just glad I get the opportunity to be a part of that."

The Chiefs initially hoped to keep Dorsey before ultimately opting to sign Mike DeVito away from the New York Jets on Tuesday.

The fifth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, Dorsey never managed to meet expectations in Kansas City, though he did develop into a solid run-stuffer by the end of his time with the Chiefs.

Dorsey would add some depth to a 49ers defensive line that just lost nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, who defected to the Philadelphia Eagles.
