In February, the Chiefs franchise-tagged DE Tamba Hali, who had exploded for 14.5 sacks in 2010, and at the time, Kansas City GM Scott Pioli said, “We want Tamba to remain a member of the Chiefs, and we will continue to work together with the hope of reaching a long-term agreement.”

That long-term agreement has been reached.

According to NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora, Hali has agreed to a five-year, $60 million deal with $35 million of that guaranteed.

It’s a big contract, but after last season, Hali showed he’s one of the best linebackers in the game. It makes sense for the Chiefs to give him a ton of money in order to secure his services for the next half-decade.
