DeAngelo Hall on the Market after being Waived by Raiders

DeAngelo Hall is looking for a new place to call "home" in the NFL. But where can he find one?

DeAngelo Hall is looking for a new place to call his home. But whose looking?

With the reasoning for the decision to waive two-time Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall by the Raiders being unclear, it is a little harder to round out teams that will want to pick him up. If he was cut due to character issues, then there are teams who, based on tradition, will most likely do nothing more than ponder the idea like Pittsburgh or Green Bay. Then there are teams like Dallas. They have already made some heady and questionable moves this season and I wouldn’t count out Jerry Jones and Co. to seize the opportunity. But then again, who knows for sure why he was cut?

I'm sure Antoine Winfield won't mind having DeAngelo Hall by his side in Minnesota.

I'm sure Antoine Winfield won't mind having a fellow Pro Bowler like DeAngelo Hall by his side.

Based off of that, I would not be surprised if the Vikings picked him up as well. This is a team that has already made a big defensive move picking up Jared Allen in the off-season, and to add a corner of Hall’s caliber to an already great number one corner in Antoine Winfield would probably create one of the league’s most formidable duos at the position.


I also feel that New England has been missing Asante Samuel, so I wouldn’t count them out of the picture. The other teams I would put in the mix would be the Carolina Panthers as they would like to become the top D in the NFC south with the Falcons and Buccaneers defenses playing well for the most part.

Finally, I would go with Arizona as a very strong possibility. The Cardinals by now have to know that they are pretty much a lock to win their division, barring an upset this Monday Night at home in the desert by the 49ers. If they wish to matchup better with the true contenders and upstarts of the league then a strong corner like DeAngelo Hall would help them tremendously.

Rudi Johnson & Tatum Bell and the case of the missing underwear

Tatum make sure you don't take the football or my underwear.

Tatum Bell was recently released from the Detroit Lions to make room for aging superstar Rudi Johnson on Monday. Bell was sent home, but apparently before he left he took Rudi Johnson’s Gucci luggage with him. This whole debacle was even caught on security camera. The red handed Tatum Bell wrote off the fiasco as a simple mistake. Who knows what to believe? Bell must have been salty about losing his roster spot. We’re willing to bet Tatum doesn’t even own Gucci bags!

Rudi Johnson told reporters, “I got the bags back – empty,”. He then explained: “he’s got a bunch of my underclothes. What he’s going to do with that, I don’t know. He’s got some socks and boxers.”
Understandably, Rudi was not elated with the event. The guy you replace steals your Designer Gucci bags…

Well ,if it were up to me, football players wouldn’t have or use Gucci bag’s (a.k.a. man purse). They would carry their clothing in a burlap sack as the way I envision the players of yesterday may have. Possibly stow their gear in token helmets from bested opposing teams. I mean really, could you see Jack Lambert or Dick Butkus strolling into the locker room with Gucci luggage?

Take a look for yourself:

Dick Butkus would never have had a Gucci bag just look at him.

Jack Lambert would have probobly eating you alive if he saw you with Gucci luggage in the Steel Curtain's locker room

Jack Lambert would have probably eating you alive if he saw you with Gucci luggage in the Steel Curtain's locker room.

I just can not see these men using or being around those you use Gucci or other designer’s bags. Sure, they may have chewed down some leather in their day, but we’re willing to bet these sports icons wouldn’t get caught dead with Designer Man Purses.
