Chiefs set to release Tamba Hali

The team also announced Monday that they have released safety Ron Parker

But it's a disappointment if those moves by the Chiefs turn out to be in vain. "And it really is just the schematic standpoint and the cap standpoint along with the age, and if you get all those things pointing in the right direction, you go that route". He last made the Pro Bowl in 2015, when he recorded 8 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks in 15 games.

Make no mistake: The Chiefs had aged considerably on defense the past couple of years, especially in the linebacker corps, where Johnson and Hali had been the foundation for years.

The Chiefs released linebacker Derrick Johnson after 14 seasons earlier this offseason and agreed to trade cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams at the end of February.

Hali's release was expected given lack of on-field production in 2017 and the cost of keeping him on the roster.

Hali dealt with knee issues last season and appeared in a career-low five games, recording one tackle.

Hali indicated he was strongly considering retirement last December. One day he will undoubtedly be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame as one of the franchise's best ever pass rushers. "Now it's time for me to move on".

Hali originally came to the United States after escaping from the war-torn African nation of Liberia when he was 10 years old. He had 67 tackles, two interceptions and four pass defenses last season.

Parker's age combined with his cost for next season ultimately forced his release.

Defensive improvement could rest on what the Chiefs get done in free agency. "Guys change teams and move".
