Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who never has been bashful about using his mouth, is now talking again about one of his former teams.
Specifically, Hall had some choice words for Falcons G.M. Thomas Dimitroff, as the Falcons prepare to host Hall’s current team, the Redskins.
“I didn’t trust Dimitroff at all,” Hall said Thursday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “He lied to me several
times. He promised me he was going to get something done [on a
contract] and he’s behind my back trying to shop me at the draft.”
But maybe Dimitroff didn’t get something done on a contract because Hall wanted far more money than his average-coverage/pathetic-tackling skills would justify. Dimitroff, in our estimation, likely would have gotten something done with Hall if Hall didn’t want to be paid like he’s a much better player than he is.
And that’s what gets lost in discussions regarding Hall. He presumes he’s an elite player. But the only time we hear from him is when he says something — rarely when he does something.
So if he’s not happy with how he was treated in Atlanta, he should save it for the field.
