Trade Between Raiders, Bears for P.J. Hall Falls Through

Advertisement

UPDATE: This trade was called off by Chicago due to a failed physical.


The Las Vegas Raiders are trading defensive tackle P.J. Hall to the Minnesota Vikings for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders will receive the pick if Hall earns a spot on the Vikings’ 53-man roster for six games in 2020.

The news comes shortly after it was reported that the Raiders were preparing to cut the former second-rounder just two years after he was selected in 2018.

In Minnesota, the Vikings needed to figure out a solution at nose tackle after Linval Joseph signed a two-year, $17 million deal with the Los Angeles Chargers in free agency.

Minnesota made a splash in the market by signing Michael Pierce to a three-year, $27 million contract in March. However, Pierce decided to opt out of the 2020 season last week due to respiratory issues and concerns that would put him in the high-risk category during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hall, a former second-rounder, played defensive end at Sam Houston State University before moving inside the line.

With the Vikings’ lack of defensive tackle depth and Hall’s experience across the line and as a nose and defensive tackle, there is a high chance of Hall making the 53-man roster and competing for a job.

The 25-year-old started 18 of 30 games within the past two seasons, but only had 1.5 sacks during that time span.

Both teams are anticipated to make their regular season debuts on Sept. 13 with the Vikings hosting their NFC North rival Green Bay Packers and the Raiders hitting the road to take on the Carolina Panthers.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
