Chiefs Claim Former Eagle Off Waivers

We knew Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid would be keeping a close eye on the Philadelphia Eagles cuts. But it would appear he also has his eyes on former players around the league

Reid claimed Chad Hall off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, the wide receiver confirmed.

Hall went undrafted out of Air Force in 2008, but ended up catching on with Reid and the Eagles in 2010. Though he was unable to make it past the final cuts that year, he was signed to the Philadelphia practice squad.

The story was similar for Hall in 2011, when Reid didn’t keep him beyond the cut down to 53, but added him again tot he practice squad.

During both seasons with the Eagles, Hall found his way to the active roster, catching 14 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns.

Hall found his way to the San Francisco 49ers practice squad in 2012 and earned a promotion to the active roster before the NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons. Not a bad way to earn a Super Bowl ring!

Unfortunately Hall was unable to stick with the 49ers, but he is reunited with Reid, who has been looking for ways to overhaul the depth at wide receiver.
