But after a 2016 season in which he recorded 34 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks, he recorded only a single tackle in five games last season.

While it was an expected move by National Football League analysts and fans alike, it's still a bit hard to stomach the idea of the Kansas City Chiefs defense without Tamba Hali being a part of it. Hali had two career interceptions, returning one for a TD and also tallied one safety. With the addition of Hali to that list of former players, the team's locker room is going to be dramatically different in 2018-one that is going to need a new set of leaders to emerge in the process. Their defense was bad last season - it ruined what could have been a good thing for the Chiefs - and something had to be done. Peters was traded to the Rams for a variety of reasons, more having to do with his behavior both on and off the field and his future cost as opposed to his ability or current cost. He became a fan-favorite and went to five consecutive Pro Bowls beginning with the 2011 season, when he had 12 sacks and forced four fumbles.

Hali is the latest Chiefs veteran to be moved this offseason, joining inside linebacker Derrick Johnson and quarterback Alex Smith. "His incredible work ethic and passion for the game helped make him one of the most successful pass rushers in franchise history".

Mudavadi, Kalonzo (Wiper) and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya) said they were not aware this would happen. The fourth party is ODM, whose leader is Raila.


Hali originally came to the United States after escaping from the war-torn African nation of Liberia when he was 10 years old.

Defensive improvement could rest on what the Chiefs get done in free agency.
