ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons are negotiating a trade that
would send outspoken cornerback DeAngelo Hall to the Oakland
Raiders for a second-round pick in the N-F-L draft.
A source familiar with the talks, speaking on condition of
anonymity because the deal had not been finalized, confirms the
Falcons were discussing a trade for the 36th overall selection. The
Falcons have the third pick in the opening round.
Hall is a two-time Pro Bowl selection, but he is nearly as well
known for his outspoken demeanor. He clashed openly with former
Falcons coach Bobby Petrino last season and was benched for a half
after a sideline confrontation. Hall was the Falcons' No. 1 pick in 2004.
