Emanuel Hall was one of the NFL’s most sought-after undrafted rookies in April, which is why the Bears guaranteed him $42,000 when he signed with them. Now Hall will see if he can do in Tampa Bay what he failed to do in Chicago.
Hall didn’t impress in Bears camp and was waived on Tuesday, and the Buccaneers claimed him on Wednesday.
It’s easy to see why the Bears were intrigued enough by Hall to give him that guarantee, and why the Buccaneers think he’s worth a shot: He’s a big-play threat who averaged 22.4 yards per catch last season at Missouri.
In Bruce Arians’ offense, Hall could flourish as a deep threat. Although undrafted rookies always have an uphill battle, and Hall is getting a late start on learning the Bucs’ playbook, it wouldn’t be surprised to see Hall make the roster.
#Bucs signed WR Emanuel Hall, an undrafted free agent who had been with the Chicago Bears. To make room for Hall, they released S Micah Abernathy

He actually is a real threat to make the bottom of the roster at WR and KR/PR
Yup with his size/speed and return ability he has a chance. The other WR’s at the bottom of the depth chart better not become complacent.+2-1Rating: +1. From 3 votes.Please wait...Aug. 15, 2019 at 2:43 pm #1202570Defense5599Blocked
Could be a fallback option if Scotty Miller can’t come back from his injury.
Didn’t we have an Emmanuel Hall on the roster in 2015?+20Rating: +2. From 2 votes.Please wait...Aug. 15, 2019 at 5:34 pm #1202604Aug. 15, 2019 at 5:37 pm #1202605Aug. 15, 2019 at 7:11 pm #1202623Alldaway 2.0Participant
Size, leaping and speed…if he shows anything in a pre season game I think he has a shot at sticking.+3-1Rating: +2. From 4 votes.Please wait...Aug. 15, 2019 at 10:48 pm #1202663Tall ManParticipant

“Winnie” has no problem connecting to Evans deep..
Our WR depth is crazy.. Plenty of teams are watching to see who we cut.. We’re seriously lacking in the return game. Hopefully that’s where Hall fits in..+20Rating: +2. From 2 votes.Please wait...Aug. 16, 2019 at 6:19 am #1202683

The Bears had too many WRs in camp. He got injured and fell behind.00No votes yet.Please wait...Aug. 16, 2019 at 6:21 am #1202684
