Well, it appears to be official. Say hello to the guy who used to go by Lil Prime Time, and goodbye to the guy who was recently called “a cross between Malcolm X and Charles Barkley”: DeAngelo Hall passed his physical today, and Leigh Torrence has been waived to make room on the roster.
There’s no press conference, no immediate media availability, nothing like that. As with Shaun Alexander, this signing is being handled more like what you’d expect based on the guy’s current role (as a bottom of the roster midseason move) than on his previous accomplishments, which strikes me as a good approach. We’ll be able to hear more from Hall, the coaches, and everyone else on Monday, when the team gets back to work, presumably with Hall on the practice field.
