DeAngelo Hall in Silver & Black?


Arrowheaddict is reporting on an interesting bit of information.  I am hearing from Raider sources that the deal isn’t done, and the Addict is reporting that Hall was telling radio listeners in Hotlanta that he’d be wearing red for a team that plays in the AFC West next season.  [And] If that’s the case, Oakland just might be donning some crimson on their unis in 2008.”  Which I doubt, so maybe the deal isn’t done, and might not happen.

Chris Mortenson is also reporting that the Raiders will sign Hall to a contract close to what Assante Samule signed in Philly, but again I’m not hearing that to be true on my end. 

Jerry McDonald of Inside Bay Area is hearing some of the same stuff.

While confirming that the Raiders are in serious trade negotiations with the Atlanta Falcons for cornerback DeAngelo Hall, Bay Area News Group beat writer Steve Corkran reports the two sides have not yet agreed on compensation.

ESPN reported an agreement in principle which would send Hall to Oakland for a second-round pick, No. 34 overall, in the 2008 draft.

Oakland’s only picks in Rounds 1 through three are at No. 4 and No. 34. They do not have a pick in the third round.

Hall desperately wants out of Atlanta and could conceivably agree to a deal even if his contract is not renegotiated.

I deleted my initial post when I started to find holes in the ESPN report.  I’ll re-post my thoughts on the trade if it goes through.

    Hey, I put up the article about Hall, and I got part of the facts mixed up (apparently, Pacman said he’d be going to a red AFC West team, which all of us rolled our eyes to). It’s a big score for ya’ll if you can make it happen!-cw

    Chris Mortensen is one of the more accurate reporters on television and I am leaning towards the deal happening as reported, which of course makes me extremely happy as a Raider season ticket holder! An effective and efficent offense paired up with what is looking to be a potential championship defense! At the end of a long, brutal and grinding  season, it is much easier to just lineup man-to-man  and try to beat sombody physically for one game than it is to try and be a precision based well-timed machine! I think Al Davis is smart enough to see what happened the last time the Raiders went to The Super Bowl in 2002, as well as what the Giants just did to the Patsies, and he is going to build himself an effective offense and DOMINANT Silver & Black defense that will bring it home at crunch time!
