Report | Chiefs to release Ron Parker

The Chiefs drafted Hali in the first round of 2006 draft to initially play him at defensive end, but he eventually moved to outside linebacker where he thrived.

Hali, one of the Chiefs' longest-tenured players, is second all-time in franchise history in sacks with 89 1/2, behind only Pro Football Hall of Famer Derrick Thomas.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly releasing veteran outside linebacker Tamba Hali.

The release of Hali, 34, will clear approximately $7.7 million in cap room. In 2015, he signed a five-year, $30-million with Kansas City.

Parke turns 31 in August.

Last season, he started all 16 regular-season games and registered 67 total tackles, two interceptions and a pair of fumble recoveries.
