Tamba Hali Biography
Tamba Hali was born November 3, 1983 and is a Liberian-born American football outside linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for Pennsylvania State University, and earned All-American honors. The Kansas City Chiefs chose him with the 20th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, and he has been selected for the Pro Bowl four times.
Hali won the Mack Lee Hill award as the top Chiefs rookie for 2006. At the end of the 2006 NFL season, Hali led the Chiefs with 8 sacks, 3.5 more than #1 overall draft pick Mario Williams. In 2007, Hali had 7.5 sacks.
Hali moved to right defensive end for the 2008 season, replacing Jared Allen. In 2009 Hali was again movedthis time to outside linebackerto accommodate new head coach Todd Haley's 34 defense. Hali's transformation from an undersized 43 DE to a 34 OLB was an amazing one considering his time in college as a DT.
In 2010 the Chiefs hired a new defensive coordinator, Romeo Crennel. Hali finished the season with an AFC-leading 14.5 sacks, leading to his first invitation to the Pro Bowl. (Hali declined the invite, citing personal reasons.) Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli made the signing of Hali to a long-term deal his number-one priority that offseason. Despite a lockout being in place, the two sides signed a five-year, $60 million contract ($35 million guaranteed) on August 4th, 2011.
Hali repaid this loyalty with an All-Pro season, racking up a career-high 83 tackles and leading the team in sacks (12) for the fifth time in his six seasons as a Chief. He was named an All-Pro and selected to play in the 2012 Pro Bowl. Hali started all 16 games in 2011 and finished second in sacks in the AFC. He tied for third in the conference with four forced fumbles, and racked up 79 tackles, a team-best 12 tackles for loss, and 31 quarterback pressures. Hali moved into fourth place the Chiefs career sacks list that season.
On August 20, 2012, the NFL suspended Hali for one game for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy. On December 26 2012, Hali was announced the starting Outside Linebacker for the AFC Division in the 2013 Pro Bowl.
