“I still want to play four more years,” said Hali. “The hope is I’ll be on the field and I don’t need to do much music until I’m done playing.”
Kansas City elected to place Hali on the PUP list to open the regular season, which means he’ll miss the first six games. Hali explained that he felt he was ready to return but the Chiefs didn’t think his knees were ready yet.
“I guess the coaches and trainers didn’t feel I was in the position to come back (yet),” said Hali. “I do, but I always have to take instruction from them. They didn’t feel like my knees were quite ready.”
