Former Michigan star Leon Hall lands with Giants
After spending his first nine NFL seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, former Michigan star Leon Hall will pull on a different uniform this fall.
As first reported by NFL Media’s Rand Getlin and Mike Garafolo, the 31-year-old cornerback signed Thursday with the New York Giants. Ian Rapoport reports Hall’s contract is for one year, up to $2 million.

Hall played 14 games and had two interceptions for the Bengals in 2015, but injuries have plagued him throughout his career. He’s coming off offseason back surgery, and has blown out his Achilles tendon twice.
If he can remain healthy, Hall will add veteran depth to the Giants’ corner group, which also includes rookie Eli Apple — a first-round pick out of Ohio State. There’s nothing like a rivalry between teammates in training camp.
