After a week where both KhaDarel Hodge and Taywan Taylor went down with injuries, it makes complete sense for the Cleveland Browns to add wide receiver depth. That came to fruition on Monday when we saw the Browns claim Marvin Hall.
Browns Claim Marvin Hall for Depth at WR
Browns claim Marvin Hall
In college, Hall played in 42 games over four years at Washington. He totaled 25 receptions for 409 yards (16.4 avg.) and scoring one touchdown. As a returner, he also posted 16 kickoff returns for 357 yards (22.3 avg.) and 12 punt returns for 105 yards (8.8 avg.).
In the NFL, Hall has spent time with the Raiders, Cardinals, Falcons, and Bears before settling in with the Lions in 2019. He has appeared in 44 games with five starts, all coming this year in Detroit. Hall has 36 career receptions for a total of 760 yards for a career average of 21.1 yards per reception. This season in Detroit, he has caught 17 balls averaging 17.1 yards per catch, along with two touchdowns.
Not only does Hall add some veteran depth to the group, but he also brings some big-time speed. According to CBS Sports, Hall ran a 4.28 back at his pro day, and the Browns could use that right now. With Odell Beckham Jr. already out for the year and now some more injuries piling up, it never hurts to have another speedy veteran ready to step in.
