Report: Redskins Release DeAngelo Hall



    The Washington Redskins have cut ties with veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall, ending his five-year tenure with the organization, according to The Washington Post.

    In 68 games with Washington, Hall earned 264 tackles and 19 interceptions, including a career-high 68 tackles last season. Yet Hall was better known in 2012 for his outbursts, like when he allegedly threatening an official in Pittsburgh and a reporter at Redskins Park.

    With the Redskins on the hook for an $18 million salary cap hit as punishment next season for front-loading contracts during the uncapped 2010 season, the team could no longer afford Hall; his release clears $8 million in cap space.

    The Redskins will hold a press conference at 4:30 p.m. this afternoon. It has not been made clear what head coach Mike Shahahan and general manager Bruce Allen will address.
