DeAngelo Hall willing to talk renegotiation to stay in Washington


It was an eventful season for the Redskins as a team and an eventful one for cornerback DeAngelo Hall as an individual, and Hall said Monday that he’s open to doing whatever it takes to do it all over again in 2013.

Hall is due to make $7.5 million next season, a salary that might make him too expensive to remain in Washington for another year. The money is not guaranteed, which means the Redskins would face no penalty if they decided to move in a different direction. Hall was asked about the possibility of redoing his deal to make it more affordable and he indicated a willingness to do that as long as he was able to remain with the team.

“This thing is getting right where it needs to be,” Hall said, via the Washington Post. “Like I said, whatever I’ve got to do to be here, I’m going to try to do that.”

Hall spent much of Sunday jawing with members of the Seahawks, continuing hostilities with Seattle from the 2011 season and a combative attitude that led to altercations with both an official and a reporter this season. He played some football in between all that jawing, giving the Redskins mixed results on the corner that improved along with the rest of the defense during the second half of the season.

    I don’t know? If its super cheap I guess. But wouldn’t cry if he was gone.

    They would be better off without him. Even at a discounted rate.

    You had a nice run in DC DHall. We can and will upgrade now though. Good luck in your future endeavors.

    Hahaha he wants to stay there cause that’s the only team that would want him

    This guy is overrated. He gets burned deep way too often. Then he has the nerve to talk smack, like he’s some shutdown corner.

    Remember him getting burned SOOOO bad over and over again by Eddie royal and cutler. Worse play I’ve ever seen by a cornerback in the nfl. Stats are t everything- you have to be able to cover and keep a cool head. He once mouthed off to a buddy of mine at va tech football camp to feel important.

    So we could cut D. Hall and save 7.5M towards a real cover corner… Not a tough call here.

    Hall should pay the Redskins to play. No other team would want his lousy play and loud mouth. He gets burned more than toast. Marshawn Lynch shrugged him off like it was a three year old girl trying to tackle him.

    ***The money is not guaranteed, which means the Redskins would face no penalty if they decided to move in a different direction***

    This is our chance to get rid of this bum.
    1) Can’t tackle
    2) Can’t cover
    3) Talks trash on every play
    4) Cancer to the team

    Bye bye DeAngelo. Hope you enjoyed your NFL career because this was your last year in the league

    Hey DeAngelo, how ’bout a little less talk and more tackling?!?

  12. purplegreenandgold says: Jan 7, 2013 2:45 PM

    Seattle must have gotten in his head again because his lip service was waaayyy ahead of his play on the field. If you can’t take it …please do not dish it. Oh well Seattle goes on to play the Falcons and sooo that means Seattle is in the Superbowl.

    As a Skins fan I realize he is a lot of talk, but other than Josh Wilson who do we have to step in? Cedric Griffin? Richard Crawford?

    Sign him to a cheaper deal and draft a CB. Already thin in the secondary, doesn’t make sense to get rid of him

  14. skeeeiins says: Jan 7, 2013 2:54 PM

    I’ll take him back based solely off his performance against Dez Bryant last week. We can use him.

  15. ringwormsherm says: Jan 7, 2013 3:03 PM

    And Sherman is a trash talker? Haha silly deadskin fans.

  16. themanchine says: Jan 7, 2013 3:05 PM

    He def played better as the year went on. If they can bring in a true #1 CB this offseason and let DHall play #2 with Wilson in the nickel that would go a LONG way towards fixing the secondary. The Honey Badger at FS with a 2nd round pick would be a nice coup to top it all off.

  17. classyjacklambert says: Jan 7, 2013 3:11 PM

    Even if he goes unsigned, he will still be overpaid. But he IS always good for one great game a year so I don’t know.

    Even the biased commentators (Buck and Aikman) admitted that Hall can indeed tackle. Very well. He has lost a step from his Pro Bowl days, but is still a solid corner and a team captain. And he just admitted he would take a pay cut to continue playing, I see you fail to give credit even in the most obvious situations.

    I’d hang onto him at a reduced rate. It’s not like we have many options or good money to sign other free agent corners. I’d love to bring in another starter and slide him to a 3rd option or even safety. Especially if he chose to bring the effort every week that he had against Dez Bryant last week.

  20. masterblaster78 says: Jan 7, 2013 4:11 PM

    Hall is an overpaid idiot. Snyder is just stupid enough to resign him LOL

  21. kenstabler says: Jan 7, 2013 4:13 PM

    He knows that he already talked his way out of town. I know his ego, he will drop the price one million, not one cent more. Big mouth, poor player. He is a backup, not a starter. He will not take back up money, but that is what he will get offered by other teams.

  22. frithstreetpost says: Jan 7, 2013 4:20 PM

    I’m a lifelong Skins fan.

    Let this guy go … expensive in two ways: paid too much, gives up too many yards both getting burnt and dumb penalties.

    And as for the trash talk … talks like he is the ultimate shut down corner, doesn’t play anything like it.

    Draft a rookie.

  23. cruells says: Jan 7, 2013 4:21 PM

    Ha! This dude want to negotiate.. There will be no negotiating.. There will be a ‘take it or leave it’ offer..

  24. xplicitpits says: Jan 7, 2013 4:40 PM

    Who? I don’t even know that guys name? Talks more then he plays! Dirty, classless, pathetic, cheap shot artist, like the cheating Redskins! Pipe in crowd noise! Pathetic! You can’t get louder then the Link!

  25. melikefootball says: Jan 7, 2013 5:00 PM

    Hall has proven to be a classless thud on the field with no respect towards players or team mates as well as the game itself. He showed last night the type player he is

  26. cspsrbums says: Jan 7, 2013 5:19 PM

    Other then Josh Wilson to step in R u kidding Wilson is as big a bum as Hall is if the Skins won’t to be competitive get rid of both of those clown tomorrow Trade Cousins because they apparently don’t think he is good enough to win and get two good corners for him

  27. londonfletcher59 says: Jan 7, 2013 5:36 PM

    Who are they going to get that’s immediately going to better than him?? Cheapen up his deal and sign a rookie to learn. I promise you, if they him go, you all will be complaining about whoever replaces him getting burned next year. Quote me.
