The Raiders have agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Leon Hall, agent Doug Hendrickson tweeted.

Hall, 33, spent last season across the Bay with the 49ers, playing nine games with one start.

Oakland has seen turnover in its secondary this offseason, with the departures of David Amerson, T.J. Carrie and Sean Smith and the signings of cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Shareece Wright.

Hall has played 11 seasons, including nine with the Bengals after they made him the 18th overall choice. He has played 142 games with 108 starts and has made 27 interceptions and 115 pass breakups.

  1. he is a Paul Guenther disciple and was brought in for that reason. Dont get your knickers in a twist. he is depth at best if he makes the 53 man roster, which I doubt.

  2. agreed. this guys is nothing more than depth and someone to teach the young guys the system. People really need to get over this “Gruden is taking this back to the 90’s” crap… it was a joke and its getting blown way out of proportion. Do you really think this man is that clueless? Really? I can’t wait to see the new innovative tweeks he throws out there… He’s not coming back to embarrass himself I promise you

  3. This is the kind of roster Gruden likes. He likes the older vet that might still have it, are professionals, and feel like they have something to prove. He did this last time. Tells me he had more control over that roster than we may have realized. When it works it’s great, but when they get hurt they don’t recover as quickly as the younger guys do, and there is a greater chance their injury may be their last.

  4. I love the Raiders and Gruden.

    But the FA sigings are a joke.

    The signings in 2018 don’t come close to signings of 98-2001.

    Jerry Rice
    Andre Rison
    Eric Allen
    Tory James
    Darrien Gordon
    Sam Adams
    William Thomas
    Trace Armstrong
    Lincoln Kennedy
    Frank Middleton
    Charlie Garner

    Here are at least 11 players who came to Raiders as Superbowl Champs or Probowl players “PRIOR” to coming to RAIDERS.

    Only one Free Agent that has signed this off season fits that criteria.

    Jordy Nelson.

    The rest are “No Name” signings.
