Outside of his work as a psychologist, Dr. Herbert (Herb) Tannenbaum is an avid sports fan. Dr. Herb Tannenbaum particularly supports New York teams, such as the Giants.

The New York Giants signed cornerback Leon Hall during the off-season. The franchise made the announcement public at the beginning of August 2016. The player agreed to a one-year contract that potentially pays up to $2 million. His addition to the team is part of the Giants’ strategy to bring new talent to its defensive line, which is one of the team’s weaker points.

Leon Hall will join Janoris Jenins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. A backup to rookie Eli Apple and a slot specialist, he may have the opportunity to take over the starting position if the first-round pick is unable to fulfill his duties. The Giants will determine if the change in starting positions is necessary to give Apple more time to acclimate to professional sports. Hall, on the other hand, has played in the NFL for nine years. He concluded his last season with two interceptions and nine blocked passes.
