Giants SCB Leon Hall (concussion) returned to practice Monday.

Getting in a session this early in the week is a good sign for his Week 1 status, but Hall may have lost his nickel job to rookie Eli Apple.

Giants CB Leon Hall left Saturday's preseason game with a concussion.

Obviously, he won't be returning. Hall had two tackles before exiting in the second quarter. If Hall's absence lingers into the regular season, it could open up work for first-round pick Eli Apple in sub-package situations.

Giants CB Leon Hall has taken "some" snaps at safety since signing earlier this month.

The longtime veteran has never played safety, but it makes sense as the Giants scramble for depth in their thin safety corps. Having Hall play the occasional snap at the back could kill two birds with one stone, as it would create more of a path to playing time for first-round CB Eli Apple.

Giants signed CB Leon Hall, formerly of the Bengals.

Hall, 31, is fully healed from back surgery and gives the Giants a true slot corner between outside CBs Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins. First-rounder Eli Apple will now sit back and learn. Hall remained one of the NFL's steadiest slot corners in 2015. With the additions of Hall, Jenkins, RE Olivier Vernon, and NT Damon Harrison, the Giants' defense is much improved on paper.

Free agent CB Leon Hall left his Giants visit without a deal.

It was Hall's second visit with the Giants. Hall should be close to fully healthy, but re-signing with the Bengals could be his preferred landing spot.

Free agent CB Leon Hall is visiting the Giants on Wednesday.

In June, it was reported the Giants were "highly unlikely" to sign Hall after he visited them back in May. The team will now see how healthy Hall is coming off back surgery. Hall, 31, could be using the Giants as leverage to get more money out of the Bengals, who are now interested after losing first-rounder William Jackson to a torn pectoral. Hall should sign sometime very soon.
Wed, Aug 3, 2016 08:46:00 AM

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said the team is interested in re-signing free agent CB Leon Hall.

The Bengals had their cornerback depth thinned Tuesday when they lost first-rounder William Jackson III to a torn pectoral. Hall had a strong season for the Bengals just last year, but is 31 and spent the offseason recovering from back surgery. The Bengals will have to be confident in his health to formalize a reunion.

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan believes it is "highly unlikely" the Giants sign free agent SCB Leon Hall (back).

Raanan speculates he will land with the Cardinals or re-sign with the Bengals. With their top three -- Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and rookie Eli Apple -- better fits on the outside, the Giants could still use some help in the slot. They will likely add a veteran at some point. Hall is still recovering from offseason back surgery.

910 Phoenix's Mike Jurecki reports free agent CB Leon Hall (back surgery) "could sign" by next week.

The Cardinals are the lone team to continue to have known interest in 31-year-old Hall, though he's also been linked to the Giants, Falcons, and Dolphins. Even if Hall doesn't sign next week, he should have a deal before training camp.
Mon, Jun 20, 2016 06:26:00 PM

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are not pursuing free agent CBs Leon Hall or Antonio Cromartie "at this time."

The Dolphins haven't closed the door on either one, but they're not looking to make a change right now. Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett are competing opposite Byron Maxwell while Bobby McCain is the favorite for slot duty. Teams have been hesitant to sign Hall following offseason back surgery. Cromartie's market has been even more quiet after a disappointing year with the Jets.
Sun, Jun 5, 2016 10:07:00 AM

ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss does not expect the team to sign free agent CB Leon Hall or OLB Dwight Freeney.

Hall visited the Cardinals early in free agency. Even with Jerraud Powers gone and slot corner Tyrann Mathieu recovering from a torn ACL, Weinfuss doesn't expect the Cardinals to revisit talks with Hall. The Cardinals traded for outside pass rusher Chandler Jones and drafted interior pass rusher Robert Nkemdiche, reducing their need to reunite with 36-year-old Freeney.

Sun, May 22, 2016 09:47:00 AM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports the Falcons will not sign free agent SCB Leon Hall.

Hall visited the Falcons last week. This news either means Hall's recovery from offseason back surgery is not going well or he has already agreed to terms with another team. The Giants are reportedly interested in bringing in veteran corner help, and Hall met with them after the draft.

Sat, May 14, 2016 12:34:00 PM

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan said "all signs still point" to the Giants bringing in a veteran slot corner.

Despite using a first-round pick on Eli Apple, the Giants are still looking for corner help. Free agent SCB Leon Hall visited New York after the draft and would make a lot of sense, but he is recovering from back surgery. He could be an option once he is closer to full health.
Sat, May 14, 2016 10:17:00 AM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "internally discussed" free agent CBs Leon Hall and Antonio Cromartie.

The Dolphins have one of the league's sorriest cornerback corps even after using the No. 38 overall pick on Xavien Howard. There's a strong possibility Howard is too raw to start opposite Byron Maxwell as a rookie. Hall is a far more effective player than Cromartie at this stage in their respective careers, but is recovering from back surgery. If he can get healthy, he'd be a no-brainer addition for the 'Fins. Hall would man the slot in South Beach.
