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. The move equals over $7 million dollars in salary cap savings for the team, per SB Nation.

Hali, a first-round pick of the team in 2006, has battled balky knees the last few years. The five-time Pro-Bowler played limited snaps in only five games for the Chiefs in 2017.

Over his 12-year career with the Chiefs, Hali recorded 588 total tackles, 89.5 sacks, 33 forced fumbles, two interceptions and two touchdowns. But he has also maintained that he wants to reach the 100-sack milestone and win a Super Bowl.


The Kansas City Chiefs released former Beaufort standout Ron Parker on Monday.

The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Newberry College, went undrafted in 2011 but signed with the Seattle Seahawks as a free agent.
