Hall Of An Opportunity

New Slot CB Has Some Birds Ties


New Eagles cornerback Tyler Hall should feel comfortable in his new surroundings.

Hall, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound slot corner who went undrafted in 2020 out of Wyoming,  trains with former Eagles safety Marcus Epps – another former Wyoming standout who emerged from the undrafted ranks.

Hall, 25, has started six games and played in 31. All of his starts have been with the Raiders – the team Epps signed with last offseason after helping the Eagles get to the Super Bowl in 2022 as a starting safety.

Hall, who has also played for the Falcons and Rams, is expected to compete in a crowded house at the slot position, but his experience could help.

The Eagles are looking for help at the slot after releasing oft-injured nickelback Avonte Maddox, who remains unsigned. Hall apparently turned down other offers to sign with the Eagles.

Local Pro Day update

The Eagles will have their “local Pro Day” on April 17, in which players from nearby universities will be permitted to attend the NovaCare Complex for workouts and interviews.

Among those expected to be there are Rutgers linebacker and Penn State cornerback:

Rice Is Nice

The son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice is expected to be one of the 30 non-local prospects that the Eagles are allowed to bring into the NovaCare Complex.

The physical, 6-foot-2, 208-pound receiver averaged a touchdown every 5.2 catches at USC despite 4.5 speed and what’s viewed as just average quickness. He caught 45 passes for 791 yards and 12 touchdowns in his last year with the Trojans.
