Q: What do Kansas City Chiefs fans have in common with one-hit-wonder Crowded House?
A: A motto and title for their only hit song, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
We’d all heard the rumor: DeAngelo Hall was linked to the Chiefs by various reports, notably Adam Schefter of the NFL Network. The dream is over for all Hall-approving Chiefs fans, though, because Hall is–gulp–now a Raider.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that Oakland is giving up a second-round pick to acquire the Arrowhead Addict favorite.
The Atlanta Falcons have reached an agreement in principle with the Oakland Raiders to trade cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the Raiders’ second-round pick in the 2008 draft, pending the Raiders finalizing a contract with Hall, according to a source close to the Falcons.
The article goes on to say that the Raiders will give Hall a smidgen less than the Iggles gave Asante Samuel (6 years, $57 million, $20 million guaranteed). Either way, it’s big money for one of the young, premier cornerbacks in the NFL, and it gives Oak-town what appears to be the newest hot, young secondary in the NFL.
