The Denver Broncos claimed offensive tackle Matt Hall off waivers Monday, but it turns out Hall didn't exactly want to be claimed.
OL Matt Hall did not report. His representation has informed @Broncos that he intends to end his playing career. Roster is at 89 players.— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) August 11, 2015
Hall, a 6'9" giant,was an undrafted free agent for the Minnesota Vikings last season. He was eventually waived by the Vikings and claimed by the Indianapolis Colts. He bounced on and off the Colts roster for a year, and was recently waived by them this past Saturday. That's when the Broncos put in a waiver claim for the left tackle.
The Broncos waived wide receiver David Porter to make room for Hall on the roster, so don't be surprised if they bring Porter back (although 89 is still plenty of players).
