Defensive tackle PJ Hall's rights reverted to the Las Vegas Raiders on Tuesday after he failed his physical with the Minnesota Vikings

The Raiders traded Hall to Minnesota for a conditional seventh-round pick Monday. The team was expected to cut the 2018 second-round pick, and it's likely the Raiders will do so at some point in the near future.

Hall has appeared in 30 games, making 18 starts, in his two NFL seasons. He recorded 26 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 2019.

The Raiders have been frustrated at points with Hall's effort, with both coach Jon Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock calling him out.

"PJ Hall, I’m anxious to see where his weight is, he came in overweight last year and at that position that can’t happen," Gruden told reporters.

The Vikings did not say why Hall failed his physical. However, it's likely he'll be looking for a new home sooner than later.
