49ers Cut CB Leon Hall

Well, that was fast. The 49ers have released cornerback Leon Hall, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Leon Hall

Hall signed with the Niners on October 10 and the hope was that he would help turn around their lackluster secondary. Just over one week later, the 49ers have decided they are not pleased with what they’ve seen.

Hall could catch on with another team, but it seems his best days are behind him as he has yet to replicate his best work from a couple years back with the Bengals. After nine seasons with the Bengals, Hall joined up with the Giants last year. The corner appeared in 12 games (two starts), totaling 20 tackles, one forced fumble, and one interception.

Hall leaves SF after receiving two game checks totaling roughly $118K, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area tweets. The cornerback participated in four practices, but did not suit up for a game. For those of you keeping score at home, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee (Twitter link) adds that Hall did not set the record for the shortest stint in franchise history. That distinction may belong to quarterback John Skelton who signed with the club on Oct. 2, 2013 and was released on Oct. 9, 2013.
