Reports are starting to surface that DeAngelo Hall has agreed to terms on a 4-year deal with the Washington Redskins. Dianna Russini of NBC Washington was the first to report Hall's new contract. The move has not been confirmed by the team or DeAngelo Hall yet, so nothing is official yet.
This move was expected as Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett called re-signing Hall and others a priority for this offseason. Hall was released before the 2013 season in order to save the team $8 million in cap space. He was then re-signed on a 1-year deal for $1.25 million with a $750k incentive that boosted his 2013 earnings to $2 million. Hall's new deal is reportedly for $4-5 million per year.
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.
