I think it was a big mistake getting rid of Hall.That was only one of just a few things they had going for them.I'm sure someone will grab him up.

Hall is a very good player and the Raiders gave him a huge contract to be a man-to-man shut down corner. Unfortunately, Hall was not that player and the Raiders have to resign Asomugha (a true shut-down corner) which will require big bucks. The Raiders asked Hall to renegotiate his contract to eliminate a 16 million dollor injury clause and Hall would not. His departure has caused a lot of disruption on the Raiders. It's too bad the Raiders offered this type of contract that they could not honor for the long term in the salary cap era and Hall did not see his performance was tied directly to the contract given. At least the Raiders are willing to correct their "mistakes" now. In the past, the Raider-fans had to suffer much longer with denial-issues from the front office.

Asomugha (a true shut-down corner)...if this is the case, why are the Raiders about to go 2-7?

He sucks like the rest of the roster.
