According to ESPN.com's Chris Mortensen the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders have reached in a preliminary trade agreement for DeAngelo Hall. In the deal Atlanta would trade Hall to the Raiders for a 2008 second round draft pick.
The deal is contingent upon Hall signing a contract extension, which according to Mortensen is also close to happening. The potential deal is said to be worth a little less than the contract
Asante Samuel recently signed with the Eagles.
The Raiders, offensively, have been a disaster in recent years, however their defense has been surprisingly solid. If Hall can get his act together and play like he actually cares, the defense will be even stronger. Consider Oakland's Defense a decent sleeper pick in your draft this season, and the addition of Hall only makes them stronger.
