Less than three years ago, Max Hall won his first start with the Arizona Cardinals.
Today, the former Cards passer is trying to make his way back in professional football.
The CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced the signing of Hall and former Rice and UFL quarterback Chase Clement on Monday. The Bombers also released quarterback Alex Brink, a seventh-round pick of the Texans in 2008.
An undrafted free agent from Brigham Young, Hall earned a chance at playing time as the Cardinals tried to replace the retired Kurt Warner in 2010. However, Hall struggled, committing at least one in all six of his appearances. The Cardinals’ victory against the Saints in his starting debut was his lone win in his three starts — and Arizona scored a pair of defensive TDs to secure the 30-20 upset of defending champion New Orleans.
Hall missed the 2011 season with a left shoulder injury, and the Cardinals allowed him to hit free agency after the campaign. In 2012, Hall was a student assistant coach at BYU.
