The Kansas City Chiefs also are expected to talk to Dorsey, who has ties to the area. His wife, Patricia Sexton-Dorsey, is a lawyer with a K.C.-based firm,'s Jason Wilde reported.

Dorsey was promoted to director of football operations in May after 12 years serving as the Packers' college scouting director. He is one of the descendants from the Ron Wolf tree that includes Packers GM Ted Thompson, Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie and Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider.
