Browns claim Marvin Hall off waivers

Wide receiver brings additional depth to a position group dealing with some injury concerns.

The Cleveland Browns claimed wide receiver Marvin Hall off of waivers on Monday.

The fourth-year veteran was released last week by the Detroit Lions.

Hall was in his second season with the Lions and appeared in 11 games this season, making five starts. He has 17 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns this year, the bulk of which came in Week 8 when he had four receptions for 113 yards against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Lions reportedly released Hall so they could give younger wide receivers an opportunity after firing head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn.

Hall was signed by the then-Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2016 out of Washington. He finished that first season with the Arizona Cardinals before landing on the practice squad of the Atlanta Falcons in 2017. In two seasons with the Falcons he had 12 receptions for 209 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Bringing Hall on board is a little bit surprising given that the Browns have done fine during the past six games on offense. Of course, injuries in practice last week to wide receivers KhaDarel Hodge, who has a hamstring injury, and Taywan Taylor, who has already been ruled out for next week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, had left the team a bit thin at the position.
