Former Las Vegas (technically Oakland) Raiders defensive tackle, P.J. Hall, currently finds himself in legal trouble. The former second-round pick and current NFL free agent was charged with assault.Â
A second-round choice back in 2018, Hall never lived up to his potential with the Silver and Black. There is a bevy of excuses for why he didn’t pan out such as effort and bad coaching. Regardless, the organization felt it had seen enough from Hall and decided it was time to trade him. Unfortunately, Hall’s original trade to the Minnesota Vikings was botched after he failed his physical, leading to his release. Eventually, he made his way to the Houston Texans where he started nine games last season. Hall has since been charged with assault and interference of public duties, these charges were filed on June 13.

Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk reported that Hall’s scheduled to appear in court on July 16, the original breaking news coming by way of Aaron Wilson of Sports Talk 790. While there are other details yet to be released, Wilson noted:
“Hall caused bodily injury . . . by pushing the Complainant with his hand,” per court documentation.
As far as Hall’s playing career, the Texans had offered him an offer on March 16 worth more than $2 million dollars, but it was since rescinded. Fast forward just less than three years after the Raiders picked him and he’s now without a contract. Whether this development affects his prospects in the NFL remains to be seen.
