Hapless Oakland Raiders release DeAngelo Hall

November 5, 2008 |  2:10 pm

DeAngelo Hall found himself on the ground after trying to trip up Roddy White of the Atlanta Falcons in their game Sunday.

The Oakland Raiders continue on their own bridge to nowhere.

The acquisition of DeAngelo Hall during the off-season was supposed to help them rebuild. Instead, they released him today, eight games into a seven-year, $70-million contract. With Hall's dismissal, he ended up with about $8 million of that money.

So much for his offer this week to help pay former Virginia Tech/Atlanta Falcons teammate Michael Vick's salary if the Raiders would sign him after he's released from prison next year.
