AP Source: Chiefs, LB Tamba Hali agree to 3-year contract

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that the Chiefs and Tamba Hali have agreed to a three-year contract to keep the veteran linebacker in Kansas City.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal had not been announced.

The 32-year-old Hali is coming off his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl, despite practicing on a limited basis much of the season because of a troublesome knee. He also had a broken thumb late in the year.

Still, the Chiefs' former first-round pick finished with 6 1-2 sacks while starting 14 of the 15 games he played. That gave him 86 for his career, matching Neil Smith for second-most in franchise history.
