49ers released CB Leon Hall.

Well that was quick. Hall lasted just nine days with the Niners before getting his walking papers. The 33-year-old will hope to latch on as a depth option elsewhere.

49ers signed CB Leon Hall.

The 49ers suffered a number of cornerback injuries in Sunday's overtime loss to the Colts. Going on 33, Hall appeared in 12 games for the Giants last season. He has made just six starts since 2014.

Free agent CB Leon Hall is visiting the Saints on Friday.

Hall, 33 in December, recently worked out for the 49ers after spending the offseason on the street. He'll likely land another job sometime after Week 1.

Free agent CB Leon Hall is working out for the 49ers on Tuesday.

Hall also worked out for the 49ers in May. At least publicly, no other team has come calling. The 33 year old played 455 decent snaps for the Giants in 2016.

Free agent CB Leon Hall will work out for the 49ers on Wednesday.

Hall joins fellow free agent S Jairus Byrd for the workout. 32-year-old Hall appeared in 13 games for the Giants last season, playing 455 snaps, including all 71 defensive plays in the Wild Card loss to the Packers. Hall received plus coverage marks from Pro Football Focus and can remain effective in the slot.

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.

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.
