Former Saint Augustine’s standout Alex Hall has a chance to resuscitate his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers.

Former St. Augustine's standout Alex Hall signed with the Carolina Panthers on April 11. Hall, who tallied 16 sacks with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the CFL last year, played in the NFL from 2008-10.

Hall, 28, signed with the Panthers on April 11 after spending the last two seasons with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League, where he finished second in the league with 16 sacks last season. A two-time division CFL All-Star, Hall (6-5, 250 pounds) adds depth at a position where the Panthers have starters Charles Johnson and Pro Bowl pick Greg Hardy, who tied the franchise record with 15.5 sacks last year. Hall will compete with Wes Horton and Frank Alexander for a backup role.

A seventh-round draft pick by Cleveland in 2008, Hall played in 32 games with the Browns and New York Giants from 2008-10. He has three NFL sacks, all during his rookie season.

Hall, a Glenarden, Md., native, was a Division II All-American at St. Aug’s as a senior in 2007. He shares the school single-season (13) and career (26) sacks record, and holds the single-game (4.5) sacks standard.
