DeAngelo Hall says he'll spend the next four years as a Redskin: The 30-year-old cornerback will sign a four-year deal with the team.
After meeting with Redskins GM Bruce Allen and Head Coach Jay Gruden, Hall felt this was the best decision, sources close to the deal said. The Virginia Tech alum led the Redskins with four interceptions and three defensive touchdowns in 2013, while also recording 78 tackles and two forced fumbles.
Hall had been a free agent after playing on a one-year contract this past season.
Hall had played for the Redskins five seasons prior to the 2013 campaign, but the team released him last spring to save money against the salary cap because he was due to earn $8 million that upcoming season. Hall later re-signed on a one-year deal worth $1.25 million.
Recently, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett called re-signing Hall one of Washington’s priority moves of the season.
