DeAngelo Hall News
Posted by Mike on November 7, 2008
According to multiple media reports, the Patriots are considering making a play for cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who was released Wednesday by the Oakland Raiders. New England, of course, has mounting injury issues at the position.
Hall cleared waivers yesterday and is a free agent.
Hall, who turns 25 Nov. 19, played eight games for Oakland and had three interceptions, 13 passes defended, and 48 tackles, but was also victimized for some big plays in man-to-man coverage. That would not be as much of a problem with the Patriots, who don’t tend to play a lot of man-to-man with their corners
Other teams expected to be interested in signing Hall, according to ESPN and NFL.com reports, are the Giants, Redskins, Saints, and Steelers.
