Bengals HC Marvis Lewis told reporters on Tuesday that the “lines of communication are open” going both ways with free agent CB Leon Hall.
Paul Dehner Jr adds that Hall is “clearly still an option” for the Bengals at this point.
Earlier in the day, the Bengals first-round CB William Jackson suffered a torn pectoral muscle, and there has already been talk that he could be done for the year or possibly a short-term I.R. candidate.
A few weeks ago, there was talk that Hall could make a decision on a new team in the near future. However, there really hasn’t been a lot of buzz since then.
Hall previously visited with the Giants and Falcons in the past few months, but he left the visits without a contract.
The Dolphins have reportedly discussed the possibility of signing Hall, but Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald mentioned a few weeks ago that Miami wasn’t pursuing him at this point in time.
It’s worth mentioning that Hall underwent offseason back surgery.
Hall, 31, is former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2007. He has spent all nine years of his NFL career with the Bengals and is now among the best available cornerbacks in this year’s market.
In 2015, Hall appeared in 14 games for the Bengals and recorded 55 tackles, two interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, and nine pass defenses.
