Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali is coming off of the PUP list, the team announced. He’ll begin practicing on a limited basis starting tomorrow.
Hali, 32, re-signed with KC this offseason before the official start of free agency. He has seen his sack totals decline a little over the last two seasons after he piled up a total of 46.5 from 2010 to 2013, but he has continued to be an effective edge defender for the Chiefs. Despite picking up just 12.5 total sacks in 2014 and 2015, Pro Football Focus ranked the veteran 11th out of 110 qualified players at the position in 2015, assigning him solid grades as both a pass rusher and a run defender.
Hali’s new deal pays him $21MM over the next three yeras with $11.5MM fully guaranteed.
