The SportsXchange

Defensive end Alex Hall is returning to the NFL from the Canadian Football League, signing with the Carolina Panthers on Friday.

The 28-year-old Hall played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers the past two years and finished second in the CFL in sacks last season with 16. He had nine sacks in 2012.

According to reports, Hall also worked out for the Tennessee Titans this week.

The 6-foot-6, 256-pound Hall was drafted in the seventh round by the Cleveland Browns in 2008 and had three sacks as a rookie. Between 2008 and 2010, he was with the Browns and the New York Giants.

With the Panthers, Hall will likely compete for a backup role.
