Looks like DeAngelo Hall will actually be joining the Raiders. Oh, well…I hope he busts now that the Crypt Keeper has spent an obscene fortune on him. From Pro Football Talk:
Steve Wyche of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the much-anticipated Falcons-Raiders trade for cornerback DeAngelo Hall is essentially done.
The teams had already agreed that Atlanta would receive Oakland’s second- and sixth-round picks in the NFL draft, but the holdup had been whether the Raiders and Hall could reach an agreement on a long-term contract extension. Hall tells Wyche that the deal will get done.
“There is just some tweaking of the language that needs to be done, some minor details,” Hall said of contract negotiations. “.”
Hall said he is planning to fly to Oakland tomorrow to sign the contract. No details of the contract have been released, but it appears that the Raiders have given in to Hall’s financial demands, which other teams had balked at.
Sorry, Chiefs fans. I guess Justin Hartwig and Max Starks are still out there.
