NFL: Former Browns pass rusher Alex Hall crushing QBs in Canada

Former Cleveland Browns player Alex Hall is sacking quarterbacks at an astonishing rate in the CFL. Hall plays for the Roughriders and had 16 sacks in the 18-game regular season. Hall finished second in the league behind Charleston Hughes, who had 18 sacks for the year.

Hall was originally drafted by the Browns in the seventh round in 2008. He had three sacks in his rookie year, but was eventually traded to the Philadelphia Eagles as a part of the Chris Gocong / Sheldon Brown deal.

Here’s an interview with Alex Hall that’s interspersed with some highlights of his play this season.

    Didn’t Cameron Wake do the same thing and translated his CFL pass rushing success to the NFL?

    Hall will be an interesting name to keep track of.

    When he was traded to Philly was Banner there at the time?

    Maybe we see him in the Orange and Brown again soon?
