Free agency roundup: Raiders sign vet CB Leon Hall

Leon Hall is staying in Cali.

The 33-year-old cornerback reached an agreement with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday. He figures to be a reserve in Paul Guenther's defense -- the Raiders defensive coordinator was a Cincinnati Bengals assistant when Hall was selected by the franchise in the first round of the 2007 draft.

Hall, a Vista, Calif. native, appeared in nine games last year with the San Francisco 49ers and made one start, recording 16 tackles. The 12-year veteran spent his first nine seasons with the Bengals, earning All-Pro honors in 2009. He has 27 career interceptions.
