Philadelphia EaglesEdit

On April 2, 2010, Hall and the 2010 fourth and fifth-round draft picks were traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for linebacker Chris Gocong and Sheldon Brown.[2] He was waived on July 28, 2010.[3]

Arizona CardinalsEdit

New York Giants (second stint)Edit

Hall was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals on November 1, 2010 and placed on the active roster, replacing Giants cornerback Bruce Johnson, who was placed on injured reserve. On November 27, Hall was waived to make room for Michael Coe, who was signed to the active roster. While he worked out for the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 14, 2010,[5] he was re-signed on December 15 after linebacker Clint Sintim was placed on injured reserve.

On October 6, 2013, Hall was traded (along with a 2nd round pick in the 2014 CFL Draft) to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for non-import lineman Patrick Neufeld and a 5th round selection in 2015 CFL Draft. At the time of the trade, Hall led the league in sacks with 15, by the end of the season he would be 2nd in the league with 16 sacks.[6] Since Hall's CFL contract expired at the end of the 2013 CFL season it was expected that would try out for an NFL team for the following season. Hall also won the Grey Cup that year.
