EDIT: The Chicago Bears have officially announced the trade and it’s for a conditional seventh-round pick.
The Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs is reporting that the Bears have agreed to trade defensive back Deiondre’ Hall to the Philadelphia Eagles. Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News is reporting said trade is for a conditional pick. That’s about an expected return for a 2016 fourth-round draft pick that has only played in ten games in three years, while battling injuries throughout his NFL career.
Hall will also need to sit out the first game of the 2018 season due to a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
All of Hall’s stats were picked up as a rookie in 2016 when he had an interception, three passes defended, and seven tackles in eight games. Unfortunately, he suffered a high ankle sprain early on that year before more of a breakout.
Hall’s place on the Bears’ 53-man roster was never a sure thing, so getting a conditional pick for him is a good move by general manager Ryan Pace.
