Agent: Andre Hall makes Broncos
Former USF running back Andre Hall has made it through the final cut and will be on the opening-day roster of the Denver Broncos, his agent said Saturday.
Jonathan Kline said Saturday that Hall, who had missed three preseason games with a hamstring injury, has impressed Denver's coaches enough that he'll open the season as the Broncos' No. 2 tailback, behind starter Travis Henry. It's exciting news for Hall, who was cut by the Bears and Bucs last summer before finding a home on the Broncos' practice squad late last season.
Count Hall as the fourth former USF player assured of a roster spot, along with cornerback Anthony Henry and linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Stephen Nicholas. We'll update with USF's other four NFL hopefuls between now and the league's 6 p.m. deadline for final cuts.
