49ers fans didn’t even get a chance to miss Leon Hall. Days after getting cut, the veteran cornerback has been re-signed, the team announced. In related moves, the Niners have cut defensive lineman Xavier Cooper and tight end Logan Paulsen. They also confirmed the signing of defensive lineman Datone Jones.
Hall was handed a pink slip on Oct. 19, but the Niners are calling on him once again after cornerback K’Waun Williams suffered a quadriceps injury. This time around, the veteran is hoping for a longer stint with the team. Hall was first signed on Oct. 10 and did not see live action in his two weeks on the roster. He did, however, collect on two game checks and participate in four practices.
Paulsen was signed late last week to fill the spot vacated by Hall’s release. Today’s switcharoo will put Paulsen on the free agent market since he is a vested veteran and not subject to waivers.
