DeAngelo Hall-elujah

Compensation has not been reached between Raiders and Falcons 5:19 p.m.

Second AND Sixth Round draft choices for Hall confirmed by multiple sources.
Contract Negotiation with Hall on going. 6:05 p.m.

Once we get Hall, which it looks like it is done or near done, we are required to give him a new deal. We might try to give Aso and Hall deals at the same time and thus eliminate the ability to use either contract against us in negotiations. Still it might be a week before Hall is official since the trade is contingent upon Hall getting a new deal.

That also frees up money from Asomugha’s Franchise Tag which gives some cap space for the remaining lesser free agents and draft picks.

Could we be banking on an uncapped year?

This move is likely Washington’s ticket out of town, but who knows what we decide to do. I guess the Raiders think the secondary was the problem in run coverage?

Could be true, check out what Jason Jones said, “One of the big problems with the run defense (according to coaches on staff) was poor tackling by the secondary. Hall is a good tackler and, along with Asomugha, would help shore up the edges for the Raiders. Wilson helps with that problem at safety.”
