Chiefs to release Ron Parker


Tamba Hali has spent 12 seasons in the National Football League, all with the Kansas City Chiefs. Parker has been a mainstay in the Chiefs secondary since back in 2013. He had 67 tackles, two interceptions and four pass defenses last season.

The interest in Parker likely means that NY is looking to move on from Terrence Brooks, who is a free agent.

Parker also has played with the Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, and Seattle Seahawks.

Letting go of Hali and Parker fall in line as the Kansas City Chiefs have let go of other players so far this offseason like Derrick Johnson, Darrell Revis, and have traded away quaterback Alex Smith and cornerback Marcus Peters.

Parker, who started at safety and is the middle of a five-year, $25 million deal signed in 2015, being cut creates another opening in the Kansas City defense.

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 after the 2017 season would see him appear just five times, the Chiefs are releasing him.
