Former Jets CB Bryce Hall joining Buccaneers on 1-year contract, AP source says

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Free agent cornerback Bryce Hall and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to a one-year contract, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Friday.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the contract with the fifth-year pro had not been finalized.

Hall, 26, spent the first four years of his career with the New York Jets, starting 26 of 39 games he appeared in with the team that selected him in the fifth round of the 2020 draft.

The Bucs added him one day after finalizing a two-year, $9 million deal with former Jets safety Jordan Whitehead.

Hall, who has two career interceptions, adds depth to a secondary that will have a different look next season with Whitehead rejoining All-Pro Antoine Winfield Jr. at safety and third-year cornerback Zyon McCollum filling an opening created when Carlton Davis was traded to the Detroit Lions.

Whitehead played four seasons with Tampa Bay before spending the past two with the Jets. Hall started two of nine games he played for New York last season.
