The 5 O’Clock Club — DeAngelo Hall Appreciation Day

DeAngelo Hall has been hobbled yet again, which gives us a chance to look back and appreciate his time here as a Redskins defensive back.

I thought this might be a good space for a few stories about DeAngelo Hall. Feel free to share your own memories and appreciation (or anything else) about a defensive back that has given Redskins fans some good years.

For me, I will recall when we first acquired DHall. It was November and we had an upcoming game against the Dallas Cowboys. I am almost positive that we let Leigh Torrence go to make room for Hall, which tells you at least a little about the upgrade that Hall provided upon arrival. He intercepted a Tony Romo pass in that game, and I was hooked (even though we lost the game).

I would like to say thank you to the defensive back—a fellow Redskins fan—from Virginia Tech.

DeAngelo, thank you for being a Redskin, and best of luck to you in your recovery and all your future endeavors.
