NFL Trade News: Falcons To Trade DeAngelo Hall to Raiders

Kieran HaweAnalyst IMarch 16, 2008

Both the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders are in rebuilding mode, and we all expected them to make some moves leading up to the 2008 NFL Draft.

Today they worked together to what they hope will be their mutual benefit.

The Falcons have agreed to trade cornerback DeAngelo Hall to the Raiders for a second-round pick in the 2008 Draft.  The deal will be finalized once the Raiders and Hall agree on contract terms. 

Hall, who was the eighth pick overall in the 2004 Draft, will be paired with Nnamdi Asomugha.

The deal would mean that the Raiders would only have one pick in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft. They will pick fourth overall unless they trade that pick as well. 

Both teams will benefit from this trade, as the Raiders get a top talent and the Falcons get more draft picks.
