Should the Pats Sign DeAngelo Hall?

UPDATE: DeAngelo Hall will sign with the Redskins.

According to, DeAngelo Hall is expected to sign a deal within the next 48 hours with either the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins, the New England Patriots, or the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hall, the former top-ten pick of the Atlanta Falcons, has had an awful year in Oakland where he has struggled to cover man-to-man opposite of Nnamdi Asomugha. Raiders officials, after giving up a 2nd round draft pick to the Falcons, finally let DeAngelo go after eight games.

Perhaps New England’s zone scheme can mask some of Hall’s deficiencies, while providing him opportunities to jump routes and make big plays. Our deep safeties can provide over the top help that the Raiders didn’t. Another risk-taker excelled doing just that for the Patriots the last few years, before moving on to Philadelphia.

Even though that at only 25 years of age, Hall has time to be groomed in Belichick’s system and to regain the groove he was once in during his two pro-bowl seasons, our guess is that the Patriots will pass on Hall.

In releated news, the Patriots signed CB Jason Webster to replace the roster spot when Shawn Crable went to IR.

    Randy Moss sucked with the Raiders too. If the Patriots can get him for without giving up to much then why not? It could be another steal.
