Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall and linebacker Houston Bates both will open training camp on the physically unable... https://t.co/WG0f0dPhB0— John Keim (@john_keim) July 24, 2017
DeAngelo Hall enters the 2017 season with big questions about his health, a question that has plagued him for the last 3 years with the Redskins. Hall will start training camp on the physically unable to perform(PUP) list, along with LB Houston Bates. Hall is recovering from an ACL from Week 3 against the Giants last season. Hall has also dealt with two Achilles tears(2014), a toe injury(2015), and last season’s ACL tear. This has resulted in Hall only playing in 17 games, and starting 13 times over the last 3 years.
Hall took a pay cut in June, taking $2 million off his his base salary, with the ability to earn some bonuses for certain achievements like a Pro Bowl appearance. The Redskins can still cut Hall once he is cleared to play, saving another $2.3 million. Hall’s been converting to safety to extend his NFL career, but he has to earn a spot on the Redskins roster. New defensive coordinator Greg Manusky has stated he “wants him back to see what he has left”.
How much does Hall have left, and will he get a chance to show it on the field this year?
Keim also noted several other injured Redskins players who will need to be cleared or placed on the PUP list by Wednesday:
The Redskins will find out Wednesday whether linebacker Martrell Spaight(shoulder), corner Fabian Moreau (torn pectoral muscle) and safety Montae Nicholson (surgery in March to repair a torn labrum), among others, will need to be placed on the PUP list. After the draft, both Moreau, a third-round pick, and Nicholson, a fourth-rounder, were on pace to return around mid-August. But the physical will determine their early fate.
How many games does DeAngelo Hall play for the Redskins this year?
