Professional career[edit]

Green Bay Packers[edit]

Hall was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, the 191st overall pick. As a smaller middle linebacker the Packers converted him to a fullback with hopes that he could become an impact special teams player. Hall has stated that he is okay with the change in his position and that he will do whatever it takes to get on the field.[1] Hall scored his first NFL touchdown when he caught a one-yard pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers on September 8, 2008, in a Monday night game against the Minnesota Vikings. It was Rodgers' first career touchdown as a starter in the NFL. During his fourth and final season in Green Bay in 2010, the Packers made the playoffs as a wild card team and won four straight games on the road, including Super Bowl XLV.

New Orleans Saints[edit]

On July 29, 2011, Hall signed with the New Orleans Saints.

Arizona Cardinals[edit]

Hall signed with the Arizona Cardinals on September 25, 2012. However, three days later, he was moved to the reserve/retired list.
