The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced they have acquired import defensive lineman Alex Hall (CFL leading 15 sacks this year) and a 2014 second round draft pick from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and a 2015 fourth round draft pick.
Hall (6'6 - 256) is in his second season in the Canadian Football League after signing with the Blue Bombers in April, 2012. This season, the 28-year-old has recorded 31 defensive tackles in 13 regular season games and is currently the league leader in quarterback sacks with 15.
Last season the Glenarden, MD native was named an East Division All-Star after registering 31 defensive tackles and nine quarterback sacks.
Hall was originally selected by the Cleveland Browns in the seventh round (231st overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft after playing at St. Augustine’s University. He went on to play 32 career regular season games before joining the CFL.
