RB Andre Hall trying out at Giants' minicamp

Former USF running back Andre Hall, cut loose by the Broncos in the off-season, has resurfaced this weekend, invited as a tryout player to the New York Giants' rookie minicamp.

Hall, who spent the last two seasons in Denver, missed the end of the 2008 season with a wrist injury. The former Dixie Hollins and Bulls standout has popped up in a few blogs covering the Giants. Newsday has a full rundown of all the players in the rookie minicamp, and the Newark Star-Ledger has a note on Hall getting thrown off by a bungee-cord drill during Friday's practice.

-- UPDATE: The Giants announced the signing of six players from the rookie minicamp, and Hall was not among them. Another tryout running back, former Oklahoma and Ravens back Allen Patrick, was signed. We'll see what else we can find out ...
