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. May 22 - 9:47 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.

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.
May 14 - 10:17 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.

The Falcons haven't ruled out signing free agent CB Leon Hall

Hall visited Atlanta and the Giants earlier this week, but left without a deal. With Jalen Collins suspended the first four games, Hall would give the Falcons a slot corner between Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford. Interest in Hall has been slowed due to offseason back surgery, but he looks close to signing with a team.

Free agent CB Leon Hall will visit the Falcons.

Hall left his Giants visit without a deal. The Falcons drafted SS Keanu Neal in the first round, but still need a slot corner to play between Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford. Hall's market was slow to develop after undergoing offseason back surgery. Now that minicamp and OTAs are starting up, he should find a new team in relatively short order.
May 3 - 9:43 PM

Free agent CB Leon Hall (back) is visiting the Giants on Tuesday.

This is an odd one considering the Giants just spent the No. 10 overall pick on Eli Apple, gave Janoris Jenkins a huge deal, and also have Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the roster. A team can never have enough corners, however, and Hall remains one of the best slot defenders in the league. Hall is recovering from surgery to repair a "disc injury" in his back.
May 3 - 8:27 AM

Free agent CB Leon Hall is reportedly recovering from back surgery.

Per WCKY's James Rapien, Hall had an operation to "repair a disc injury that required epidurals late in the year." It's unclear when the procedure occurred, though it was likely in January. Although he turned 31 in December, Hall remained amongst the league's most effective slot corners last season. Hall has appeared in 29-of-32 games over the past two years, but has an injury history that includes two Achilles' tears.

Apr 12 - 6:23 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero guesses the Dolphins will be interested in free agent CB Leon Hall once his asking price comes down.

Hall has visited both the Cardinals and Cowboys, but he has yet to find anyone willing to match his asking price. A 31-year-old slot corner, Hall will likely have to settle for a short-term deal at considerably less than the $7.8 million he brought home last season. Hall is the No. 1 corner left on the market.
Apr 4 - 10:44 AM

Free agent CB Leon Hall is visiting the Cowboys.

Hall visited the Cardinals on Monday. A slot-only corner at this point in his career, signing Hall would indicate Orlando Scandrick will play almost exclusively outside in his return from a torn ACL and MCL. The 31-year-old Hall is Rotoworld's No. 3 available corner.
Mar 15 - 11:23 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cardinals will host free agent CB Leon Hall on Monday.

Hall, despite his advanced age (31), is easily one of the better free agents left on the market. He's become a very solid slot corner-only at this stage of his career. With Tyrann Mathieu coming off a torn ACL, Hall would be quality insurance and allow the Cardinals to bring Mathieu along slowly.
Mar 11 - 12:57 PM

Bengals SCB Leon Hall (concussion, back) is probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Steelers.

Hall didn't miss any practice time despite his concussion. He'll match up with WR Markus Wheaton in the slot.
Jan 8 - 5:11 PM

Bengals SCB Leon Hall (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Steelers.

Hall missed last week with the injury, but he looks on track to play against Pittsburgh after getting in a full practice Friday. It is not all roses for the secondary heading into an important divisional game. Adam Jones (foot, doubtful) is not going to play, and George Iloka is questionable with a groin injury.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 10:20:00 AM

Bengals CB Leon Hall has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 12.

Hall had an easy day against the Rams' anemic passing offense. He allowed all eight of the passes thrown at him to be caught, but they went for a total of 39 yards. Hall also pick-sixed Nick Foles and was graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 corner for Week 12. The soon-to-be 31-year-old has remained a steady presence despite tearing his Achilles' twice.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 10:01:00 AM

Bengals declared CB Leon Hall, WR Greg Little, WR Mario Alford, TE C.J. Uzomah, DT Marcus Hardison, DT Pat Sims, and DE Margus Hunt inactive for Week 6 against the Bills.

Hall has a back injury. All the others are healthy scratches.
