Raiders signed CB Leon Hall.
Headed into his age-34 season, Hall has become a journeyman reserve. The Raiders will be his fourth team in as many years. Hall has made just three starts over the past two seasons, playing 660 snaps. He won't be guaranteed to crack the 53-man roster, though new coach Jon Gruden has been going back to the future in Oakland. Mar 29 - 3:51 PM

The Athletic's Vic Tafur reports the Raiders are "talking to" free agent CB Leon Hall.

Hall has spent the last two seasons with the Giants and 49ers, but he was with new Raiders DC Paul Guenther in Cincinnati before that. Hall would be an option in the slot if he signs.

49ers re-signed CB Leon Hall.

Hall appears set to be a yo-yo player this season. The 49ers also signed DE Datone Jones, and cut DE Xavier Cooper and TE Logan Paulsen.

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.
