Hall signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The 49ers parted ways with Hall less than a week earlier before he could make his team debut, but seeing the field in San Francisco's Week 8 matchup with the Eagles may be a more realistic possibility. Reserve cornerback K'Waun Williams suffered a quadriceps injury in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is considered unlikely to play in Week 8, perhaps paving the way for Hall to be active on game day.
Hall was released Thursday by the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Hall signed with the 49ers just over a week ago, which makes his sudden release fairly surprising. The veteran cornerback did not see the field during his very short stint in San Francisco and will be on the free agent market once again.
Hall signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports. The 32-year-old veteran played 12 games with the Giants last season, recording 31 tackles, two sacks and one interception in the process. He failed to sign on with any team this offseason, but could now become an immediate contributor on defense given the plethora of injures in San Francisco's secondary. Even if he doesn't see the field at first, Hall's veteran presence will help guide the 49ers' young cornerbacks.
Hall (concussion) returned to practice Monday, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports. Hall suffered a concussion during the Giants' third preseason bout. His return to practice bodes well for his health, but his Week 1 status remains up in the air.
During 7-on-7 periods, Hall received extensive work at free safety alongside strong safety Landon Collins in the base and nickel defenses, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. With Darian Thompson sidelined for at least a week, the Giants need to find a free safety, and the veteran cornerback could be the solution. If Hall were to wind up starting, he'd have some IDP upside.
