The Lions intend to waive receiver Marvin Hall, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

Hall had a 100-yard game in Week 8, catching four passes for 113 yards. In 11 games this season, Hall has 17 catches for 290 yards and two touchdowns.

He has played 40 percent of the team’s offensive snaps this season.

Hall could garner interest on the waiver wire.

He entered the league as an undrafted rookie in 2016 and has had stints with the Raiders, Cardinals, Falcons and Bears in addition to the Lions. He joined the Lions’ practice squad in 2019 and played nine games with Detroit last year.

The Lions want to look at the younger players on the roster, according to Garafolo. Wideout Quintez Cephus and tight end Hunter Bryant could benefit from Hall’s departure.

  1. Younger players? And you kept Amendola. Ugh someone is gonna get a decent player in Hall. If anything i wish they would have played him more, guy could burn them but should have been featured more especially some WR screens.

  2. So who is making the roster moves? I don’t get cutting a cheap, young, speedy WR when you don’t know your next GM or coach and what they seek in a player. You can not play them, or play them less… but don’t name players currently on the roster as a reason you cut a player like this so they can play more! Who signs off on this??

    Look into Cephus background.


    The kid has talent, ambition, and a great work ethic. Accused of sexual assault or rape (don’t recall exactly which), expelled from school in Madison, went to trial, was ACQUITED, readmitted to school and rejoined the football team, had a great 2019 season for the Badgers. THAT’S his background.

    Look into Cephus background.
    He was accused of sexually assaulting two women . He was charged with with a second and third degree sexual assault . Wisconsin expelled him after a Title IX investigation saying he violated the non-academic code of misconduct . The issue was Cephus asked for a delay because he couldn’t testify at the hearing because of potential conflict with his criminal trial . Wisconsin refused . He was acquitted by a jury of all charges in 2019 . He was reinstated to Wisconsin because of they received information that didn’t come out during the Title IX investigation from his trial . Think what you want but he was found innocent of all charges and Wisconsin reinstated him when information from the trial shed new light on the case .

  5. Hall can run in a straight line all day. I have nothing but respect and love for the guy but he’s 27, they know exactly what they have in him, and he is never going to be anything beyond the 4th WR. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that but it makes complete sense to get game film on some other guys considering Hall wasn’t going to be back next year.
