Raiders waive Hall, causing more worry

November 06, 2008|associated press

The Oakland Raiders decided to waive DeAngelo Hall only eight games after signing him to a $70-million contract, bringing surprised reactions from his teammates, who now wonder even more about the future of the franchise.

Hall was supposed to form one of the top cornerback duos in the league with Nnamdi Asomugha but struggled from the start of the season as he adjusted to the Raiders' man-to-man defense.

Culpepper may start for the Lions

Quarterback Daunte Culpepper may make his Detroit debut against Jacksonville only days after signing, because Dan Orlovsky's right-hand injury is severe enough to be covered by a soft cast and examined by a specialist.

Jacksonville middle linebacker and team captain Mike Peterson was sent home by Coach Jack Del Rio. There was speculation it could have been because Peterson flexed his muscles following a tackle Sunday with the team trailing. . . . Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, recovering from a broken pinkie on his throwing hand, returned for a bye-week practice. . . . David Tyree, who made the key catch in the New York Giants' Super Bowl victory, was put on injured reserve following off-season knee surgery and then a hamstring injury.
