Hall inked a contract with the Patriots on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Still just entering his age-28 season, Hall brings some added speed to New England's wideout group after averaging 17.1 yards per catch in his 11 games with the Lions last season, finishing the year with a combined 18 catches for 302 yards and two touchdowns in his 11 games with the Lions and one additional game with the Browns.
Hall enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
Hall, who was inactive for both of Cleveland's playoff games, played sparingly after he was claimed off waivers from the Lions in early December. He will be free to join any team in 2021. The Browns have their top three wideouts under contract for next season, but they are expected to bring in multiple bodies to compete for depth spots.
Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Chiefs.
Hall will miss a third straight game as a healthy scratch. He's not expected to play this postseason unless another wide receiver suffers an injury.
Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card matchup in Pittsburgh, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Hall made his debut with the Browns back in Week 16, but he was inactive for the regular-season finale and won't be on hand for Sunday's rematch against the Steelers. Instead, Cleveland will roll with Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Alexander Hollins at wide receiver.
Hall was mentioned as a possible fill-in third wide receiver with KhaDarel Hodge (reserve/COVID-19) out and Donovan Peoples-Jones (concussion) questionable for Sunday's playoff opener against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski mentioned Hall along with Ja'Marcus Bradley as well as an expanded role for running back Kareem Hunt. Both Hall and Bradley played Week 16 against the Jets but were inactive for last week's season finale. Stefanski also raised the name of Alexander Hollins, who was signed off the Vikings' practice squad Dec. 28 and was inactive for Week 17.
Hall caught one of two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.
Hall made his debut for Cleveland after being claimed off waivers from the Lions earlier in December. He was part of an emergency crew activated for the game after the Browns' top four receivers were placed on the COVID-19 list, all deemed high-risk contacts of teammate B.J. Goodson. The wideouts will have to spend at least five days on the list and could be ready for the Steelers in Week 17 when a win will clinch a playoff berth, pushing Hall back off the active roster.
Hall is expected to serve as the de facto No. 1 receiver for the Browns in Sunday's game against the Jets with Cleveland's top four wideouts being ruled out for the contest after the quartet was identified as close contacts of linebacker B.J. Goodson, who tested positive for COVID-19, Ellis L. Williams of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Scooped up off waivers from the Lions on Dec. 7, Hall has yet to make his Cleveland debut after being made a healthy inactive for his first two games with the organization. He'll now be thrust into a prominent role out of necessity Sunday, with all of Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, Donovan Peoples-Jones and KhaDarel Hodge having been ruled out for Week 16. Expect the run-heavy Cleveland offense to rely even more on the ground game as a result of the personnel losses at receiver, but Hall should be in store for at least a handful of targets, which could be enough to make him an enticing punt play in DFS contests.
Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Giants, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
The Browns claimed Hall off waivers after Detroit decided to cut the 27-year-old Dec. 5, but he's now been a healthy scratch in back-to-back games with his new team. Hall produced 14 receptions for 234 yards and a touchdown over his final five appearances as a Lion between Weeks 8 and 12, however, Cleveland has decided to proceed with KhaDarel Hodge and Donovan Peoples-Jones as its third and fourth WR options for Sunday night.
Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday night's matchup against Baltimore, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Hall was activated from the exempt list Saturday after being claimed by Cleveland on Dec. 7, but he'll have to wait to make his team debut for at least one more week. The 27-year-old had been active as a pass catcher over his final five games with the Lions Weeks 8 through 12, corralling 14 passes for 234 yards and a touchdown.
Hall was activated off the exempt list Saturday and will be available for the Browns' Week 14 matchup with the Ravens, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Hall was claimed off waivers by Cleveland earlier in the week. Prior to that he was with the Lions and recorded 17 receptions for 290 yards and two scores across 11 games. The 27-year-old will bring plenty of speed to the Browns' receiving corps, where he is expected to help provide depth.
The Browns claimed Hall off waivers from the Lions on Monday, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.
Hall has 17 catches for 290 yards and two scores across 11 games with the Lions this season, and he could slot into a similar situational deep role with Cleveland once he's up to speed on the new playbook. Speaking of speed, the 27-year-old reportedly ran a 4.28-second 40-yard dash back at his pro day, so he'll bring an intriguing skill set to the Browns' roster. He also boasts some experience on special teams.
Hall was officially let go by the Lions on Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
Hall has primarily filled in for Kenny Golladay (hip) since Week 8. While the latter remains out in Week 13, the Lions have opted to go in a different direction. As a result, rookie Quintez Cephus figures to be in line for more opportunities Sunday in Chicago. Hall will now look for a new opportunity.
The Lions are expected to waive Hall, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Hall has filled in for Kenny Golladay during the latter's current absence, subbing in for him when he injured his hip Week 8. In that contest against the Colts, Hall reeled off 113 yards on four catches and seven targets. However, in four games since then, he surpassed 30 receiving yards once and compiled a 10-121-1 line on 15 targets during that span. Once the move is official, the Lions seemingly will give rookie Quintez Cephus more chances with Golladay out again Sunday in Chicago.
Hall caught two of four targets for 16 yards during Thursday's 41-25 loss to Houston.
Hall was a starting wideout in the absence of both Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip), but the speedster surprisingly wasn't much of a factor in this high-scoring affair. Instead, Detroit attacked the middle of the Texans defense, allowing T.J. Hockenson and the Lions' running game to fill up the stat sheet. While it's not clear if Golladay or Amendola could return for a Week 13 matchup against Chicago, Hall doesn't seem to be a reliable fantasy option regardless of the opportunity in front of him.
Hall (toe) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against Houston, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Hall began the week with back-to-back limited practices, but he managed to practice fully Wednesday. With Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip) both sidelined, Hall should serve as one of Detroit's top three receivers versus the Texans.
Hall (toe) was listed as a limited participant for Tuesday's walkthrough, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old was also limited on Monday's practice estimation after playing 68 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to Carolina. Hall could avoid an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Texans if he puts in a full practice Wednesday.
Hall (toe) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice estimate, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Hall showed no signs of an injury during Sunday's loss to the Panthers, as he played 68 percent of the snaps on offense and posted three receptions for 16 yards. If he's able to play through the injury in Thursday's game against the Texans, he could continue to handle a sizable workload with Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip) also on the injury report.
Hall caught all three of his targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 20-0 loss to Carolina.
Each of Marvin Hall, Quintez Cephus and Jamal Agnew saw expanded roles in the absences of Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip), but none of them were able to do much on a day Matthew Stafford struggled through a thumb injury. Should Golladay and Amendola remain sidelined in Week 12, Hall could get another shot to produce against a Texans defense allowing the sixth-most yards per pass attempt (7.8) in 2020.
Hall is expected to occupy a larger role in the Lions' passing game Sunday against the Panthers with Kenny Golladay (hip) and Danny Amendola (hip) ruled out for the contest, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Hall had already played north of 60 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the Lions' past three games with Golladay having been sidelined since exiting early in the Week 8 contest, but Amendola's absence now leaves even more volume in the passing game up for grabs. Marvin Jones still projects as the Lions' top weapon in the passing game, but Hall and Quintez Cephus could both see enough targets to make for intriguing speculative plays in DFS tournaments or deeper season-long leagues. Hall has demonstrated some big-play ability in Golladay's stead the last three weeks, turning 15 targets into 202 receiving yards (13.4 YPT) and a touchdown.
Hall caught two of three targets for 61 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 30-27 win over Washington.
It looked like Hall was in for a big day after he opened the scoring on a 55-yard touchdown in the first quarter, but D'Andre Swift and Marvin Jones ended up commanding roughly two-thirds of the Lions offensive touches. While it's disappointing Hall wasn't able to get more looks in the absence of both Kenny Golladay (hip), Danny Amendola (hip) might need to miss time as well now, which would position Hall as a top-two receiver for Detroit in the short term, with Quintez Cephus and Jamal Agnew also on hand. Next up is a Week 11 matchup against a declining Carolina team that has allowed the seventh-highest completion rate (68.8) in 2020.
