Tamba Hali Should Be Pleased With Charles Johnson's New Deal

We're not sure what kind of money the Kansas City Chiefs and LB Tamba Hali are talking about but considering Hali lead the conference in sacks last season it's a good bet that it'll be a decent chunk of change. Hali is the Chiefs franchise player and the deadline to sign franchised players to long-term contracts is reportedly Sept. 20.

So Hali has to be pleased to see the latest monster deal on the market for a pass-rusher -- DE Charles Johnson agreed to a whopping six-year, $76 million contract with the Carolina Panthers. $32 million of that is guaranteed.

As 610 Sports' Nick Wright noted after hearing the deal, this is good news for Hali. It certainly doesn't hurt his market value when other pass-rushers are getting big deals. (Then again, $10-plus million for one year isn't so bad either.) I don't think Tamba's in the $12 million per year range, like Johnson, but he's not that far off.

I would guess -- and it's just a guess -- that Hali's new deal, which we expect will come at some point, will be put on the backburner for a couple of weeks until the rest of the craziness dies down.
