Defensive end James Hall-you know that it had to happen, the Spagnuolo Connection.  Hall is a former St. Louis Ram who could find a place with his former head coach who would now be his defensive coordinator.  A win-win for both.

Hall eerily was released when Spagnuolo became head coach of the Rams but was quickly re-signed.  When Spagnuolo was hired by the Saints, Hall was released a short time later.  Are their fates intertwined?  If the price is right, then it could be possible.

During his time with the Rams, Hall was an effective, starting pass rusher especially with fellow defensive end Chris Long on the opposite side.  While with the Rams, Hall had 30 sacks with a total of 63 sacks for his 12 years in the NFL.

Like Andre Carter, Hall’s age at 35 could guarantee that if the Saints sign him it could be for a good price.  However, the Saints could get a good pass rusher.

Hall could reunite with Spagnuolo and regain his form under him.  Also, it would be a nice homecoming for Hall since he is originally from New Orleans.

    With Dwight Freeney at 14 million I believe we can get 2 or 3 with this much money and good ones. Luis Castillo could be one, Andre Carter, and Tommie Harris or James Hall all veterans they knows the line.

     Larry Holder commented that Freeney would require a Reggie Bush-type trade plus Freeney may be more interested in money at his age(33).  If I had to pick two,granted they’re healthy, Andre Carter would be my first choice for a defensive end and for a defensive tackle would be a tight one with either Castillo or Harris.  Harris was a three time Pro Bowler and if the Patriots were looking at Castillo, then they obviously know something.
