Good size. We really need a solid back up DE. Sure Addison,Alexander, and Horton are decent but I would love to see us have a 3rd starting caliber DE. Deep Defensive lines wins championships. Not saying this guy is the answer but who knows what he will do this season.

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.

I had to laugh watching that video of him sacking Cam. The conversation on the sideline is funny. "How's a Quarterback outweigh a D-End?" lol

My only issue with this guy is his weight.   Kind of a light weight at DE.   He has an uphill climb to make the roster of 53.

Man the giants sure do miss gettle magic :)

Every single move reminds me of the giants offseason - when for some weird reason giants would just load up on defensive ends :)

I asked my same question above in a sports group I am in on Facebook. Here are a few responses.

Dont know much...He was a low pick, small school. Think Browns traded him to Philly..then they cut him,, he bounced around a few teams, then bounced out. Don't follow CFL, but if those numbers are correct, that's crazy, and don't care where you play. Maybe a freak year, maybe he'll get cut,........ maybe he discovered himself.... or discovered roads ?


Chris: Hall was a raw, but athletic late rounder that needed to work on his technique. To the best of my knowledge, he was strictly a rotational player while he was with the Browns and I believe that he was simply the victim of teams having a year of film on him to figure out his limited repertoire. I don't think that Carolina picked him up to be a starter, but rather to add depth. Not an exciting move, but smart none the less.


I emailed this question to a friend of mine (HUGE Browns fan) and he replied. It would appear that calling Hall rotational would be an overstatement on my part. According to Mr. Zolac: Alex Hall was a "situational" player that got figured out AND passed on the depth chart by more consistant players.


Just in case anyone was wondering.
