Professional career[edit]

Cleveland Browns[edit]

Hall was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year contract with the team on July 22, 2008.[1]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit]

On April 2, 2010, Hall and 2010 fourth- and fifth-round draft picks were traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for linebacker Chris Gocong and Sheldon Brown.[2] He was waived on July 28, 2010.[3]

New York Giants[edit]

Hall was claimed off waivers by the New York Giants on July 29, 2010.[4] He was waived by the Giants on September 4, 2010.

Arizona Cardinals[edit]

Hall signed with the Arizona Cardinals on September 21, 2010. He was waived on October 30.

Second Stint with Giants[edit]

Hall was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals on November 1, 2010 and placed on the active roster, replacing Giants cornerback Bruce Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve. On November 27, Hall was waived to make room for Michael Coe, who was signed to the active roster. While he worked out for the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 14, 2010,[5] he was re-signed on December 15 after linebacker Clint Sintim was placed on injured reserve.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers[edit]

Hall signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League on April 24, 2012. He ended the season as an East Division All-Star and was named Winnipeg’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player.

Saskatchewan Roughriders[edit]

On October 6, 2013, Hall was traded (along with a 2nd round pick in the 2014 CFL Draft) to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for non-import lineman Patrick Neufeld and a 5th round selection in 2015 CFL Draft. At the time of the trade, Hall led the league in sacks with 15, by the end of the season he would be 2nd in the league with 16 sacks.[6] Since Hall's CFL contract expired at the end of the 2013 CFL season it was expected that would try out for an NFL team for the following season. Hall also won the Grey Cup that year.
