Cut from Falcons' practice squad

Hall was cut from the Falcons' practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: The wide receiver was reverted to the practice squad Dec. 27 prior to being let go Thursday. Hall appeared in two games for the Falcons' this season, making one catch for 10 yards on 17 offensive snaps. He will now look to find another squad heading into the 2021 offseason.

Back to practice squad

Hall reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Hall was elevated to Atlanta's active roster for Sunday's win over the Lions with Tajae Sharpe (foot) sidelined. Even so, he played only five offensive snaps while also recording one catch on one target for 10 yards. If Sharpe remains sidelined, it's possible that Hall will be promoted again for a Week 17 matchup against the Bills.

Catches first pass of season

Hall caught his only target for 10 yards during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Lions.

Analysis: With Calvin Ridley (personal) still away from the team and Tajae Sharpe (foot) sidelined, Hall was elevated to the active roster for just the second time this season. The 28-year-old played just five offensive snaps, but he caught his first pass of the season on his only target. Despite the lack of depth in the Falcons' wide receiver corps, Hall likely doesn't garner any fantasy consideration heading into a tough matchup against the Bills in Week 17.

Elevated to active roster

Hall has been promoted to the Falcons' active roster ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

Analysis: Hall joined the Falcons' practice squad in November. This will mark his second time being called up to help provide depth at receiver.

Reverts to practice squad

Hall reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Hall was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad ahead of Thursday's loss to the Patriots, and he played 12 offensive snaps. However, the 28-year-old wasn't targeted in Week 11 and will now return to the practice squad.

Elevated for Week 11

Hall was elevated from the practice squad for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Hall will give the Falcons some added depth out wide with Calvin Ridley (personal) still on the NFI list. This will be the season debut for Hall, who has 45 games of NFL experience under his belt.

Joins Atlanta practice squad

Hall has signed with the Falcons' practice squad.

Analysis: Hall, who combined for 18 catches for 302 yards and two TDs in 12 games last season (11 with Detroit and one with Cleveland) will give the Falcons some added wide receiver/return depth in advance of the team's Week 9 contest against the Saints.

Works out with Falcons

Hall worked out for the Falcons on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was waived off the Patriots' injured reserve Aug. 25 with an undisclosed injury, but it appears he is healthy and ready to join a new team. In 12 games with the Browns and Lions in 2020, Hall had 18 catches for 302 yards and two scores.

Agrees to injury settlement

Hall (undisclosed) reached an injury settlement with New England on Wednesday and was waived off injured reserve, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Hall was placed on injured reserve with the unspecified issue last week and will now hit free agency. New England was expected to part ways with the 28-year-old prior to the injury, so it's hardly a surprise an injury settlement was reached.

Lands on injured reserve

Hall (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Hall was expected to be let go by New England over the weekend, but he's dealing with an unspecified injury and was instead placed on injured reserve. He appeared in 12 games between the Browns and Lions in 2020, totaling 18 receptions for 302 yards and two scores.

Aug 17, 2021 10:50 PM EST


Released by Pats

Hall was released by the Patriots on Sunday, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.

Analysis: Hall had been hoping to stick as a depth option with New England but was let go after the Patriots' preseason opener. He'll hope to latch on with another team before long.

Aug 15, 2021 4:27 PM EST


Signs on with Patriots

Hall inked a contract with the Patriots on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Still just entering his age 28 season, Hall brings some added speed to New England's wideout group after averaging 17.1 yards per catch in his 11 games with the Lions last season, finishing the year with a combined 18 catches for 302 yards and two touchdowns in his 11 games with the Lions and one additional game with the Browns.

Becomes UFA in offseason

Hall enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Analysis: Hall, who was inactive for both of Cleveland's playoff game, played sparingly after he was claimed off waivers from the Lions in early December. He will be free to join any team in 2021. The Browns have their top three wideouts under contract for 2021, but they are expected to bring in multiple bodies to compete for depth spots.

Jan 18, 2021 5:10 AM EST


Healthy scratch again

Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Hall will miss a third straight game as a healthy scratch. He's not expected to play this postseason unless another wide receiver suffers an injury.

Jan 17, 2021 10:55 AM EST


Not facing Steelers

Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup in Pittsburgh, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hall made his debut with the Browns back in Week 16, but he was inactive for the regular-season finale and won't be on hand for Sunday's rematch against the Steelers. Instead, Cleveland will roll with Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Alexander Hollins at wide receiver.

Jan 10, 2021 4:14 PM EST


Possible fill-in Sunday

Hall was mentioned as a possible fill-in third wide receiver with KhaDarel Hodge (reserve/COVID-19) out and Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) questionable for Sunday's playoff-opener against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski mentioned Hall along with Ja'Marcus Bradley, as well as an expanded role for running back Kareem Hunt. Both Hall and Bradley played Week 16 against the Jets but were inactive for last week's season-finale. Stefanski also raised the name of Alexander Hollins, who was signed off the Vikings' practice squad Dec. 28 and was inactive for Week 17.

Makes Browns' debut

Hall caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Hall made his debut for Cleveland after he was claimed off waivers from the Lions earlier in December. He was part of an emergency crew activated for the game after the Browns' top four receivers were placed on the COVID-19 list, all high-risk contacts of teammate B.J. Goodson, who tested positive for the virus. The wideouts will have to spend at least five days on the list and could be ready for the Steelers in Week 17 when a win will clinch a playoff berth.

Bigger role awaits Week 16

Hall is expected to serve as the de facto No. 1 receiver for the Browns in Sunday's game against the Jets with Cleveland's top four wideouts being ruled out for the contest after the quartet was identified as close contacts of linebacker B.J. Goodson, who tested positive for COVID-19, Ellis L. Williams of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Scooped up off waivers from the Lions on Dec. 7, Hall has yet to make his Cleveland debut after being made a healthy inactive for his first two games with the organization. He'll now be thrust into a prominent role out of necessity Sunday, with all of Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge having been ruled out for Week 16. Expect the run-heavy Cleveland offense to rely even more on the ground game as a result of the personnel losses at receiver, but Hall should be in store for at least a handful of targets, which could be enough to make him an enticing punt play in DFS contests.

Sitting down for SNF

Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Giants, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Browns claimed Hall off waivers after Detroit decided to cut the 27-year-old Dec. 5, but he's now been a healthy scratch in back-to-back games with his new team. Hall produced 14 receptions for 234 yards and a touchdown over his final five games with the Lions between Weeks 8 and 12, but Cleveland has decided to proceed with KhaDarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones as its third and fourth WR options for Sunday night.

Dec 20, 2020 4:26 PM EST


Won't make team debut on MNF

Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday night's matchup against Baltimore, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Analysis: Hall was activated from the exempt list Saturday after being claimed by Cleveland on Dec. 7, but he'll have to wait to make his team debut for at least one more week. The 27-year-old had been active as a pass catcher over his final five games with the Lions Weeks 8 through 12, corralling 14 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown.
