Biography

Kenneth Simon Dorsey (born April 22, 1981 in Orinda, California) is an NFL quarterback for the Cleveland Browns after being traded from San Francisco 49ers for veteran quarterback Trent Dilfer. Dorsey was a former college football star at the University of Miami.

University of Miami

While at the University of Miami, Dorsey was known as a consummate winner, leading the Hurricanes to the 2001 national championship and posting a gaudy record of 38-2 as the team's starting quarterback. Dorsey also effectively rewrote the school record book, setting career records for total offense (9,486 yards), passing yards (9,565), passing touchdowns (86), pass completions (668), pass attempts (1,153), victories as a starting quarterback (38), winning percentage by a starting quarterback (.974), and 200-yard passing performances (31).

Dorsey also holds the school records for consecutive passes without an interception (193), consecutive games with a touchdown pass (31), and touchdown passes in a game (5). In addition, Dorsey was named the co-MVP of the 2001 Rose Bowl (in which Miami defeated the University of Nebraska to win its fifth national championship), Big East Offensive Player of the Year twice (2001, 2002), and first-team All-Big East three times (2000, 2001, 2002). Dorsey was also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy in both 2001 and 2002 and the winner of the 2001 Maxwell Award, which is given to the national collegiate player of the year.

Dorsey departed Miami as one of the most celebrated quarterbacks in college football history.

San Francisco 49ers

In the 2003 NFL Draft, Dorsey was selected with the 27th pick of the 7th round by the San Francisco 49ers. In his first two seasons in the NFL, Dorsey has played in nine games (starting in seven), completing 123 of his 226 pass attempts, and throwing for 1,231 yards and six touchdowns with seven interceptions. He has a career passer rating of 62.4. He was the back up to #1 pick Alex Smith. He moved into the backup role after the trade of veteran quarterback Tim Rattay to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cleveland Browns

In May 2006, Dorsey was traded to the Cleveland Browns along with a 7th round pick in the 2007 Draft for veteran quarterback Trent Dilfer. Dorsey had just re-signed on a restricted free agent contract with the 49ers.
