KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 5 (UPI) -- Despite a $4 million salary cap hit, the Kansas City Chiefs allowed Tamba Hali's contract to void Friday.

Hali, who is coming off of offseason knee surgery, took a $3 million pay cut last season while the team was able to add four voidable years to the deal.

The team would be penalized $4 million against the 2016 salary cap if it didn't reach a contract extension with Hali by March 4, according to Terez A. Paylor, of the Kansas City Star.

Hali, 32, was selected No. 20 overall in the 2006 NFL Draft. The free agent defensive end and linebacker had 39 tackles and 6.5 sacks last season. Hali has 86 career sacks in 10 seasons. He is a five-time Pro Bowl selection.

ESPN's Josh Weinfuss wrote that signing Hali should be the Arizona Cardinals' No. 1 priority in free agency.
