According to new Redskins DC Greg Manusky, S DeAngelo Hall will return in 2017 for his 10th season with the Redskins. For many, this news comes as a surprise. Manusky broke the news to Kevin Sheehan and Chris Cooley on ESPN 980.
#Redskins DC Greg Manusky w/ @thecooleyzone & @kevins980 on D Hall - "Across the board we'd like him back to see what he has left..."— ESPN 980 (@espn980) March 16, 2017
Hall joined the Redskins in 2008. He tore his Achilles in Week 3 of 2014 and missed the rest of the season. Since that time, he’s appeared in 14 of a possible 45 games for the Redskins. He had a toe injury and also tore his ACL last year.
At 33, Hall is scheduled to make $4.25M this season. That’s far too much for a player of that age with that kind of recent injury history. Hall has said he’s willing to take a pay cut. It’s worth noting that the Redskins currently lack depth at safety... and a healthy Hall may be able to provide that.

Interesting listen. Manusky views both McClain and McGee as 3-4 ends, specifically called McGee the LE (cited length). Looking for a NT https://t.co/EtrD8nxtSR— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 16, 2017
Manusky said Swearinger more the back end guy (meaning FS) while Cravens more in the box (meaning SS), which is as it should be.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 16, 2017
Yeah, comes across well in interviews. A no BS kinda guy. https://t.co/2uBSgVAXkm— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) March 16, 2017
