2016 NFL free agency: Leon Hall set to visit Arizona Cardinals

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals are finally making some offseason action. After signing veteran safety Tyvon Branch, they are looking at another veteran to give some help in the secondary. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals will host free agent cornerback Leon Hall, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hall has played in the league 10 years, all with Cincinnati. He was drafted in the first round in 2007 and is 5-11 and 193 pounds.

He had two interceptions, eight passes defended and a touchdown last season in 14 games. He started four of them.

He has 26 picks in his career, with a career high six in 2009.

He is a solid player to add and, at age 31, he will add experience to the cornerback position.

The biggest concern about Hall is his ability to stay healthy. He has not played in all 16 games in a season since 2010.

Hall is coming off the final year of a four-year, $39 million contract extension to his original rookie deal. He made $7.7 million in salary last season for the Bengals.
