Free-agent linebacker Tamba Hali appears to be inching closer to retirement.

Hali, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in March, said during an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio that his interest in playing has waned.

The 34-year-old admitted that he wants to continue to play "at times," while on other occasions he would rather spend more time with his family or pursue his musical interests.

Hali released the video for "Oh My Gawd," the debut single from "Tamba Juice" earlier this month. He founded his own record label, Relumae Records, several years ago.

"I just need to continue to work out and do my music," Hali said. "I don't want to focus too much on football. I don't see myself getting back into football. I see myself being involved with the Chiefs somehow, maybe as a specialist being able to teach the guys. I don't want to lie to myself. I think the time has come."

Hali, who played 12 seasons with the Chiefs, made five straight Pro Bowls from 2011 to 2015. His 89.5 sacks are second to Derrick Thomas in team history.

Hali dealt with knee issues last season and appeared in a career-low five games, recording one tackle. He began last season on the physically unable to perform list and did not appear in a game until Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Before last season, Hali had only missed five games -- although in 2016 he started just two games after agreeing to a three-year $21- million deal and elected to skip voluntary offseason workouts.

Hali recorded 453 tackles, 89.5 sacks and 10 interceptions in 177 regular-season games. He reached double digits in sacks in 2010, 2011 and 2013.
