John Dorsey hasn’t wasted any time since he was hired to replace Scott Pioli as the general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, making a series of bold moves to shore up the roster. Dorsey said in a phone interview with The Associated Press late Wednesday that the decision to sign wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt to long-term deals, and place the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert, are all part of a plan he set out upon his arrival.

The Chiefs have also traded for San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith and restructured the contract of defensive lineman Tyson Jackson, though Dorsey could not comment on either of the moves because the new league year doesn’t begin until Tuesday.
