Former Cardinals QB Max Hall has accepted an assistant quarterbacks coach position at his alma mater, BYU.

It's a student-assistant job. Hall, still just 26 years old, signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and actually made three starts as a rookie, but proved brittle, error prone, and out of his league at the NFL level. He did have a skill set that would have suited arena ball, but apparently has decided to retire. Hall was a prolific passer at BYU from 2007-2009.

The Cardinals failed to tender exclusive rights free agent QB Max Hall, making him an unrestricted free agent.

An undrafted free agent out of BYU, Hall failed to appear in a game for Arizona in 2011 after completing just half of his 68 attempts and putting up a 1:6 TD:INT ratio in 2010. He's unlikely to land a third-string quarterback job this summer, so the AFL or CFL could be his best option.

Cardinals QB Max Hall will undergo surgery on his left shoulder.

The damage turned out to be more serious than originally believed. Hall made it through waivers and will spend the 2011 season on injured reserve. He'll be back to battle for the No. 3 job in next year's training camp.

Cardinals QB Max Hall (shoulder, injured reserve) reportedly may need surgery on his subluxed left shoulder.

Hall is expected to eventually be released with an injury settlement, though shoulder surgery might prevent him from latching on elsewhere anytime soon. Beat writer Mike Jurecki jokingly suggested "arena ball" for Hall, but it's actually a pretty good idea. The arena game would be a better fit for Hall's skill set.

Cardinals waived/injured QB Max Hall.

Hall suffered a left (non-throwing) shoulder dislocation, is out 4-6 weeks, and was not going to make the 53 anyway. The Cardinals will roll with John Skelton and Richard Bartel behind Kevin Kolb, with Brodie Croyle as a camp arm. Hall started three games as an undrafted rookie last season, completing 29-of-59 passes for 275 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.

Cardinals QB Max Hall is sidelined with a subluxation in his left shoulder.

It's a similar injury to the one that ended Hall's season as a rookie. He was already fourth on the depth chart, so there's a good chance that he'll end up waived/injured in the near future. John Skelton is nursing a high ankle sprain, which further necessitated the Brodie Croyle signing.
Tue, Aug 23, 2011 03:10:00 PM

Cardinals QB Max Hall is ineligible for the practice squad this season.

Hall was active for 10 games last season, which exceeds playing time requirements for the practice squad. He's currently fourth on the depth chart behind Kevin Kolb, John Skelton, and Richard Bartel. The Cardinals won't keep four QBs, so he'll have to turn heads again in preseason action.
Tue, Aug 9, 2011 06:09:00 PM

Cardinals QB Max Hall plans to add 10 pounds of muscle before the start of the 2011 season.

Hall is fully recovered from a late-season separated shoulder. The added bulk is a good idea considering the dare-devil playing style he exhibited as a rookie, but he's likely headed to the practice squad this year. The Cardinals are the favorites for Kevin Kolb, and they may end up signing Marc Bulger as insurance.
Wed, May 11, 2011 09:11:00 AM

The Arizona Republic suggests that QB Max Hall may be ticketed for the Cardinals' practice squad in 2011.

Hall looked so overwhelmed in six 2010 appearances that there is growing sentiment around the Cardinals that Richard Bartel is a better prospect. Hall could still pan out as a long-term backup, but his arm strength and overall makeup aren't NFL caliber. The former BYU Cougar finished his rookie year with a 1:6 TD-to-INT ratio and a 50.0 completion percentage.

Cardinals placed QB Max Hall (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

His non-throwing shoulder was separated in last week's game. Hall played in six games as an undrafted rookie, getting knocked out of two of them with serious injuries and missing time in another. H e finishes his first year with a 1:6 TD-to-INT ratio and a 50.0 completion rate while failing to answer questions about body size and arm strength. The Cardinals can hope he develops into a Ty Detmer-style backup, but he's not the answer as a starter.
Tue, Dec 7, 2010 01:41:00 PM

Max Hall (shoulder) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks of action.

He'll almost surely be placed on injured reserve when the Cardinals, as expected, bring in a quarterback this week, as there's no point for them to cross their fingers and hope for a late-season return. On the bright side, at least the shoulder separation is to his left (non-throwing) arm. Hall's rookie season has likely ended with a QB rating of 35.7.
Tue, Dec 7, 2010 08:15:00 AM

Cardinals QB Max Hall revealed after Sunday's loss that he suffered a dislocated left (non-throwing) shoulder against the Rams.

Hall suffered the injury on a strip-sack, forcing rookie John Skelton onto the field. Hall is definitely going to miss multiple games, if not the rest of the season, and the Cardinals have no reason to turn back to Derek Anderson at this point. Though coach Ken Whisenhunt was noncommittal following Sunday's game, Skelton seems likely to start against the Broncos in Week 14. Expect Whisenhunt to make an official announcement by Tuesday.
Sun, Dec 5, 2010 07:41:00 PM

Max Hall is out for the remainder of Sunday's game with a left shoulder injury.

After taking two sacks, throwing a pick, and completing 1-of-3 attempts for 10 yards, Hall headed to the locker room and will not return. Rookie John Skelton has replaced him. Hall has looked shell-shocked in his latest appearances, and from the sound of it the shoulder injury could be serious. It's hard to imagine Skelton being any worse than Hall or Derek Anderson, anyway.

Larry Fitzgerald has taken issue with ESPN’s Ron Jaworski’s criticism of Max Hall.

Jaws said, among other things, of Hall: "You just don’t see a skill set that projects to be a consistent NFL quarterback." Fitz said on KTAR radio in Phoenix that it’s "far too early to write (Hall) off" and that "the more playing time he gets, the better he’s going to be." Coach Ken Whisenhunt has yet to announce whether it will be Hall or Derek Anderson that starts in Week 9.
