Kansas City Inks LB Tamba Hali to Five-Year, $60 Mil Extension

The Chiefs have agreed to terms with linebacker Tamba Hali on a five-year, $60 million extension, including $35 million in guarantees.

Last season under new defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, Hali led the AFC with 14.5 sacks, plus recording two more sacks in the postseaon, while forcing four fumbles. Hali has emerged as Kansas City’s defensive MVP and one of the most dominant pass rushers in the NFL.

The Chiefs under general manager Scott Pioli have gone about the business of locking up their young stars to long-term deals and Hali is just the latest to cash in. He is expected to be able to practice today for the first time, setting the defense in motion for the season.
