Chicago Bears: Deiondre’ Hall cost himself a roster spot

CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 02: Deiondre' Hall /

Deiondre’ Hall was flirting right on the edge of the Chicago Bears 53-man roster. Now it is hard to make any case for him to be there

Deiondre’ Hall entered his third training camp with the Chicago Bears firmly on the roster bubble. He needed a good camp to prove that he was worth keeping around, as he came in designated as the fifth safety. Unfortunately for Hall, he has not done enough to warrant roster consideration.

In the Chicago Bears first two games, the arrow was trending in his direction. He was seeing some early snaps on special teams and saw the field a ton as a safety. In week one he recorded seven tackles.

However, from there he has been trending down. Hall committed an egregious personal foul penalty on special teams in the Chicago Bears third preseason game. As a fifth safety, the name of the game is make it as a special teamer. To lose that trust is vital.

Then, after the game, it could be argued that his already dimming fate was sealed. Reports came that Deiondre’ Hall will be suspended for one game due to a violation of the NFL’s banned substance abuse policy.

It has not come out whether it was a recreational drug use or performance enhancing. However, it is worth noting that he has once been arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

The thing that a poor special teams penalty, an arrest for public intoxication and a suspension for a failed test all have in common is that they are poor choices. On and off of the field, Hall has consistently made poor choices.

The fact of the matter is that Matt Nagy did not draft Deiondre’ Hall. He should have no faith in Hall and coaches who have been around the time likely are losing faith as well. Hall was hanging on by a thread and even though it was just a one game suspension that thread should be cut in the coming weeks. We will see if Hall even gets a chance to prove his worth after the suspension in the preseason.
