Pair Of Former Aggie Football Players Sign As NFL Free Agents
April 28, 2009
Myers, a tight end, and Hall, a safety, were both among 14 rookie free agents signed by their respective teams.
Myers, who had 21 receptions for 320 yards with three touchdowns, led the nation's tight ends with 15.2 yards per catch his junior season of 2007. His season was highlighted by being named the John Mackey National Tight End of the Week on Nov. 21, 2007 for his career-best outing of 117 yards on four catches with two TD's in USU's win at New Mexico State. However, Myers missed his senior season of 2008 with a preseason injury.
Myers attended the NFL Combine in February, but his action was limited due to his injury rehab.
Hall was selected to play in the East-West Shrine Game. Last season, Hall posted 72 total tackles (33 solo, 39 assists), with two tackles for loss and one sack. He also had a team-high seven pass break-ups, as well as one interception. Hall ended his career with 128 career tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, four interceptions, 13 pass break-ups and four fumble recoveries.
Myers and Hall make eight former Aggies on NFL rosters, joining Jarrett Bush (CB, Green Bay), Chris Cooley (TE, Washington), Kevin Curtis (WR, Philadelphia) Shawn Murphy (OG, Miami), Donald Penn (OT, Tampa Bay) and Kevin Robinson (WR/KR, Kansas City).
