"Nick Sirianni was in KC with John Dorsey….I think this has Dorsey's finger prints all over it, I think Dorsey has the ear of the owner."- Sal Pal tells @MikeGillShow

A few months ago, the Eagles quietly hired former Chiefs and Browns GM John Dorsey as a front-office consultant.
With Kansas City, Dorsey drafted several key contributors to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LIV winning team, including superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, star receiver Tyreek Hill, and star tight end Travis Kelce.
With the Browns, Dorsey drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) 1st overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Dorsey also drafted No. 4 overall pick cornerback Denzel Ward (Ohio State), and running back Nick Chubb (Georgia) in the Second Round.
Dorsey also played a vital role in the acquisition of star wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr., as well as acquiring other assets via trade and the draft (cornerback Greedy Williams, running back Kareem Hunt, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, and defensive end Olivier Vernon).
Now with the Eagles, it appears Dorsey has the ear of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and may have played a role in Nick Sirianni landing with the Eagles per 97.3 ESPN via Sal Paolantonio.
Sirianni had previously spent four seasons as an assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs and he obviously left a notable impression on Dorsey who was named the team’s GM in 2013.
