Eagles Trade For S Deiondre' Hall

Take a look at the 53 players that makeup the Eagles' initial roster.

And you thought Howie Roseman would go through roster cutdown day without making a trade?

During his press conference to discuss the decisions that allowed the Eagles to get to the 53-player limit, Roseman announced that the team acquired safety Deiondre' Hall from the Bears. Chicago received a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2019 in return.

The 24-year-old Hall is 6-2, 206 pounds, and a former fourth-round pick (No. 127 overall) out of Northern Iowa. He will not count toward the Eagles' Week 1 roster as he is on the Reserve/Suspended list for violating the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

"We did our background work on him," Roseman said. "Joe Douglas was with Chicago when they drafted him in 2016. He's a safety who has a corner background as well. Had a chance to get exposure to him in the preseason and his tape."

In 10 career games, Hall has seven tackles, three pass breakups, and one interception. He played in just two games in 2017 after spending the first 12 contests of the season on Injured Reserve with a hamstring injury.

At Northern Iowa, Hall posted 242 tackles, 15 pass breakups, 13 interceptions (four returned for touchdowns), three forced fumbles, and three sacks in 51 games.
