On Thursday afternoon, the Chargers claimed defensive back Kemon Hall off of waivers after being released by the Cowboys.

Hall was originally signed by the Bolts as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL draft out of North Texas. He also spent time on the Saints’ practice squad in 2020. During the 2019 preseason, Hall recorded six total tackles in four games.

The 5’11, 190-pound Hall was a standout for the Mean Green as a senior in 2018 with five interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns, to go along with 48 total tackles, one tackle-for-loss, and 14 pass breakups. The year prior he notched a career-high 73 tackles with one interception and another eight PBUs.

The move adds another body to a cornerback group that’s flush with youth. Behind their top-three guys in Chris Harris Jr., Michael Davis, and Asante Samuel Jr., the team has four other formerly undrafted players in Brandon Facyson, Tevaughn Campbell, John Brannon, and Donte Vaughn.
