CHICAGO, IL - OCTOBER 02: Deiondre' Hall /

The Chicago Bears sent Deiondre Hall to the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

The Chicago Bears took the NFL world by storm yesterday when Adam Schefter broke the news Saturday morning that Khalil Mack would be heading to Chicago. Bears fans were buzzing, but for the organization, it didn’t change that they had work to do.

The Bears needed to announce their initial 53-man roster and to do so, they had to make some tough decisions, one of those came with Deiondre Hall.

Hall was a fourth round pick of the Chicago Bears back in 2016. Originally drafted as a cornerback, the Bears felt he had more potential as a safety and Hall made the transition in 2017. Hall has shown flashes that he could become a player, but between injuries and off the field issues as well, Hall has never really reached that potential.

After it was announced that Hall had a one-game suspension coming due to violating the league’s substance abuse policy, it was pretty evident that the Bears would be headed in another direction. When DeAndre Houston-Carson suffered a broken arm, there was some speculation that perhaps Hall would make the team by default, but Saturday that proved not to be the case.

Hall is headed to Philadelphia. The move makes sense for the Bears. Hall clearly didn’t figure in the bears future plans and the fact that they got anything for him is pretty good. The Eagles it’s a low risk move as well. If he’s great for the team, they only give up a seventh and if he doesn’t work out they get him, in essence, for free.

The Bears will be making a couple more moves (besides announcing their practice squad) over the next couple days to make room for Mack and perhaps add some depth at another position on the field.

This is an exciting time for Bears fans, with the opening game against the Green Bay Packers one week away, Bears’ are as optimistic as ever that their team is ready to make an impact across the NFL landscape.
