Ahmard Hall FB Tennessee Titans
Back in 1998 Ahmard Hall (right) joined the United States Marines and stayed there until 2002 as a radio field operator, where he reached the rank of Sergeant while deployed in Afghanistan. After he returned he walked onto the Texas Longhorns football team, playing on the 2005 National Championship squad.
After entering the Supplemental draft in 2006, he went undrafted and signed with the Tennessee Titans. While he has only accumulated 571 total yards from scrimmage (mostly receiving) and only 2 touchdowns (only receiving) he was resigned again because he was an integral part to the teams running game.
Now they had to scrape the bottom of the league to find a replacement for him. Hall has been suspended by the NFL for a violation of the leagues performance enhancing drug policy. He joins Bobbie Williams as the second player suspended for the same policy on the day. The Titans traded for Packers FB Quinn Johnson, a former 5th round selection out of LSU, to replace him for the first four games of the season -- if not more.
