His 2016 season was almost as good as Hall finished with 73 total tackles (43 solo) with 2 passes defended. Overall for Hall’s 4 years, he finished with 261 total tackles (151 solo) with 31 of those for a loss, 5 sacks, 5 interceptions, and 10 passes defended.
It remains to be seen if Hall will be called up to the 53-man roster before the Chargers’ next game against Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET.
