Vince Hall lands in Buffalo
The Notebook
The Buffalo Bills signed former Tech linebacker Vince Hall to their practice squad late last week. The 5-foot-11, 240-pounder from Chesapeake, Va., was not drafted in last April’s NFL Draft and signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis Rams, but the Rams waived him on Aug. 2nd. Since then, he had not been with any other NFL squad.
Interestingly, an injury to another former Hokie probably enabled Hall to land with the Bills. Former defensive end Chris Ellis injured his ankle and was placed on injured reserve by the Bills, who ultimately called up another player from their practice squad, thus creating an opening on the practice squad for Hall. Ellis played in seven games for the Bills this season and recorded three tackles (all solo).
Hall recorded more than 400 career tackles for the Hokies, including three seasons in which he recorded 112, 128 and 100 tackles, respectively.
