Hali has proven to be a well-rounded linebacker in both defending the run and rushing the passer since being drafted 20th overall out of Penn State in the 2006 NFL Draft. He has made six Pro Bowls and has also developed a reputation as one of the league’s most durable players, playing close to a full season in each of his NFL seasons despite various aches and pains.
As a result, Hali has managed 556 career tackles to go with 86 sacks and 32 forced fumbles.
The financial terms of his contract have not been disclosed, but Hali has done enough in Chiefs uniform to be rewarded for his efforts on the field. He’s not the best at what he does, but is a Kansas City staple and can now look forward to ending his career with the team for whom he has given his heart and soul on a regular basis.
