I don't think its going to be a problem and he will remain with the Chiefs.
Chiefs Designate Tamba Hali as Franchise Player
Not sure how I feel about this. I just hope a deal gets worked out, and like... YESTERDAY!
If he doesn't remain with the team, we'll get two first round picks for him. I'd be fine with that, although I prefer to keep him.
I think they are waiting till the new CBA gets done before they sign guys. They don't no what the salary cap is going to be so it's hard to give a guy a new deal right now. I think that they will get him signed up when that is done.
IMO the reason why they are franchise tagging Hali is because they want to make sure he is not injury prone and that all his injuries from this year doesn't affect him next year.
They'll get a long term deal done eventually. It may or may not be this year, but Tamba will make a pretty penny regardless. With no CBA in place though, nothing is going to happen.

HALI is going to be a Chief for life......i hope!
It just gives them more time to get him a killer long term contract.
