Kenneth Simon Dorsey or Ken is the third-string quarterback for the Toronto Argonauts of CFL (Canadian Football League). After playing his college ball for Miami, Dorsey was taken in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He was the 241st pick overall.
Dorsey led the University of Miami to the 2001 national title. During his college career, his record was 38-2. He set numerous school records, including 9,486 yards of total offense, 9,565 passing yards, 86 passing touchdowns, 668 completions, 38 wins as a starting QB, 31 games passing 200-plus yards and 193 consecutive passes without an interception. He was the co-MVP of the 2001 Rose Bowl, Offensive Player of the Year (2001, 2002), and First-team All-Big East (2000, 2001, 2002).
In three active seasons, Dorsey has played in NFL 13 games. He was with the 49ers in 2004 and 2005. In 2006, he played for the Cleveland Browns. Prior to the start of the 2007 season, the Browns released him. However, he was resigned to the reserve roster later that year. He is presently listed third on the team’s depth chart.
In three seasons, the quarterback has completed 53.9-percent of his throws for 1,712 yards. He’s tossed eight touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His rating stands at 63.5. On 26th May, 2010, he was signed with the Toronto Argonauts as a backup to former Miami Dolphins quarterback, Cleo Lemon.
At six-foot-four and 220 pounds, Dorsey offers a fine size and frame for a NFL quarterback. He’s an intelligent player, possessing sound mechanics and fine awareness in the pocket. His short and intermediate passes are accurate and catchable. He plays well under pressure and moves away from hits while in the pocket. However, Dorsey’s weak arm strength negates the long ball and his relative immobility makes it tough for him to make broken plays work.
