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