Former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver and kick returner Marvin Hall has gone the way of Taylor Gabriel and agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears on a one-year deal.

Hall wasn’t expected to re-sign with the Falcons after he took to Instagram to deliver a goodbye message to the team, days ago. In Chicago, he’ll look to be a weapon for Mitchell Trubisky in Matt Nagy’s offense, and is expected to compete for return duties.

Atlanta recently signed Kenjon Barner to take over kick return duties in 2019.

Hall won a roster spot for the Falcons in 2017. That season, he played in eight games, primarily on special teams, and hauled in two receptions on nine targets for 60 yards and a touchdown (most of that yardage came on a 40-yard touchdown catch against the Dolphins).

In 2018, Hall became more of an option in the offense — recording 10 receptions on 19 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. He also racked up 616 kick return yards on 26 attempts, for a 23.7 yards per game average, with a long return of 53 yards in Week 4 against the Bengals. Re-live Hall’s two touchdown receptions for the Falcons (and a long catch by Austin Hooper) below.

We thank Marvin Hall for his contributions to the team over the past two years and wish him nothing but the best in Chicago,
