The San Francisco 49ers are bringing in veteran cornerback Leon Hall for a visit. The 49ers secondary is light on veteran experience, with no defensive back on the roster having more than five years in the league, and Hall has years of high quality play to his name, even if injuries have been a significant blight on his career. Last season the 8.2 coverage snaps played per target was the best mark of his career, and on the Giants defense.
The Chicago Bears have claimed FB Michael Burton from division rival Detroit after he was cut loose to make way for RB Matt Asiata. The Bears, if anything, employed even less fullback than the Lions did last year, so Burton still has his work cut out to get on the field much, but when he has been out there he has been a consistently good lead blocking force.
