Hall offers the Bears wideout depth behind Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller (shoulder) and Cordarrelle Patterson, and projects to make most of his impact on special teams if he earns a spot on the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old had 10 receptions for 149 yards and one touchdown in 16 games with the Falcons last season.
The Falcons didn't extend a tender to Hall, making him an unrestricted free agent, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hall played a whopping 387 snaps in 2018, recording 10 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown. His role primarily came on special teams, however, serving as the main punt and kick return man. The Washington product could be an appealing option for a team looking to add a boost to their special teams.
Hall recorded 149 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions in 16 games in 2018.
Hall saw a much larger role in 2018 than he did as a rookie in 2017, playing 387 snaps on the year. His primary role was on special teams, as he operated the teams kick returner for much of the year and was just a depth receiver on offense. He'll figure to have a similar role if he's on the team again next season, though he could move up the depth chart slightly.
Hall caught one of three targets, picking up 10 receiving yards during Sunday's 40-14 win against the Cardinals.
The second-year wideout snapped a four-game catchless streak, working in a 10-yard reception against Pro Bowler Budda Baker during the latter stages of the third quarter, as the Falcons put up 220 yards through the air on Arizona's defense No. 5 pass defense. As a returner, Hall chalked up 10 yards in bringing back an Andy Lee punt, but the gain was erased by a holding penalty on rookie Russell Gage. He's only collected 17 targets on the season, but most of his involvement has come by way of special teams, where he's returned 21 kickoffs for 25.0 yards per attempt. In Week 16, he'll be lining up against a Panthers kickoff coverage unit that's surrendered 23.1 yards per kick return in 2018 (ranks 17th).
Hall was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.
The townward trend continues in Atlanta as the team has failed to top 20 points in five consecutive games, all losses. Hall is feeling the effects. After a three-catch Week 7, Hall has snagged just one of five targets for 12 yards. Sunday brings an Arizona defense ranked in the top five for receiving yards allowed per game with only 231.
