The defensive tackle is apparently being shopped

When I searched the photo editor for “Raiders Hall” I was first hit with a bunch of images of players walking down the hallway to or from a game. That was not the “Hall” I was looking for but it does carry some relevance, as it’s been rumored now that the Las Vegas Raiders are open to dealing defensive tackle P.J. Hall ...

Which would send him on the way out.

Hall was drafted in the second round, 57th overall, in the 2018 draft out of Sam Houston State. He has played in 30 of a possible 32 games, making 12 official starts last season. HAll recorded 26 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and five QB hits in 2019. But Vegas GM Mike Mayock, who came to the organization after Hall was drafted, always a potential sign that management isn’t on the same page about previous personnel decisions, signed defensive tackle Maliek Collins in the offseason and also has Maurice Hurst and Johnathan Hankins to work with at the position.

Additionally there’s been mock draft speculation that the Raiders could take someone like defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw out of South Carolina in the first round this year. That would be another sign — the most obvious one yet — that the team is ready to move on and send the player to a new destination.
