he Chiefs placed the franchise tag on linebacker Tamba Hali, who went to the Pro Bowl this past season as the AFC's leading sacker.

In an announcement Wednesday on their official website, the Chiefs said they still hope to reach a long-term agreement with the outside linebacker, who was a first-round draft pick in 2006.

As a non-exclusive franchise player, Hali is guaranteed a one-year contract equal to the average salary of last season's five highest-paid players at his position -- approximately $10 million -- if he stays with Kansas City. Hali can negotiate with other teams, but the Chiefs would receive two first-round draft picks from any team that signed him.
