According to reports, the Oakland Raiders plan to release star cornerback DeAngelo Hall. Surprisingly, several teams are condidering grabbing him off waivers, among them, the Patriots. The report comes from profootballtalk.com:
Also, don’t be shocked if someone makes a waivers claim on Hall. We’re told that interested teams include the Patriots, Texans, Giants, Redskins, Rams, and Saints. Several teams have the money to pay Hall — and getting him for $16 million in guaranteed money could be regarded as a bargain.
Signing Hall would be a huge addition for the Patriots. At just age 24, Hall is still very young, as well as one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the NFL. Grabbing hall would be absolutely huge for the Patriots, and we’ll be here to cover this story as it (possibly) develops.
