Steelers interested in Deangelo Hall?

Deangelo Hall was released by the Raiders this week and rumor has it that the Steelers might be interested. Even though it makes a ton of sense, and he could probably be signed cheap, I think it is highly unlikely the Steelers sign Hall. We have McFadden coming back from injury soon. Hall has a reputation for being a locker room disruption (although unfairly earned b/c his biggest incident was with slime ball Bobby Petrino) and I'm not sure how excited he will be to play the physical, stop the run first scheme that Dick Lebeau likes to run. Nonetheless, Hall would surely be an upgrade to Deshea Townsend and could fit in nicely in the nickel and dime defenses. Not to mention that he could drastically upgrade the return game. Let's see how this plays out.

From Pro Football Talk:

As we hear it, several teams are actively pursuing cornerback DeAngelo Hall, now that he has cleared waivers and become an unrestricted free agent.

We’re told that Hall is talking to several teams, including high-level
folks with more than one franchise. One source characterized it as a
“frenzy” of activity.

Adam Schefter reports that the Giants, Redskins, Steelers, and Patriots are interested.

UPDATE: Deangelo Hall Signs with Washington Redskins
