Where has the time gone?

Kansas City Chiefs Customized Houston Texans Jersey linebacker Tamba Hali will enter his 12th season in the league in 2017, after a 2016 campaign that saw a Men’s Nike Customized Denver Broncos Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Shirt dip in snap percentage by design.

Even with the dip, Hali Customized Green Bay Packers Jersey still managed 3.5 sacks in 2016, while Custom Texans Jersey hurrying the quarterback 36 times.

When Dee Ford couldn’t play (hamstring Custom Colts Jersey) in a key matchup with Denver Week 12, Hali played the most in any game all season, registering 79 snaps (98.8 percent) on defense. His sack in the initial Broncos drive of the overtime period would help lead the Chiefs to an eventual 30-27 victory.
