Former Atlanta and Dallas player Deion Sanders finally convinced Hall to take a three-way telephone call on Monday. "We had a pretty good conversation," Hall said Wednesday.

"That's the No. 1 thing in the National Football League. You don't spit in another grown man's face. Hopefully, the NFL can see it and go back and watch the film right just before the first punt. On third down, we were kind of walking face to face, walking back to the huddle and he just hauled off and spit in my face."
