The Redskins have plenty of impending free agents on their starting defense and they have reportedly opened up talks with one of them in hopes of keeping him around for 2014.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that the team has started up talks with cornerback DeAngelo Hall on a new multiyear contract. Hall played out the 2013 season on a one year, $1.25 million deal that he signed after the Redskins cut him for cap savings last offseason.

Hall has expressed a desire to return to Washington and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett mentioned him along with linebackers Brian Orakpo and Perry Riley as free agents he wants to see back with the team for the 2014 season. Cornerback Josh Wilson and safety Reed Doughty are among the other defensive free agents in Washington, which will also have to replace retired linebacker London Fletcher.

Hall joined the Redskins in 2008 after a disastrous eight-game stint with the Raiders and has started every game for the team over the last four years. Hall led the Redskins with four interceptions and three defensive touchdowns in 2013 while also recording 78 tackles and two forced fumbles.

    Benefit of not playing well this season is that a lot of people haven’t seen that Hall played pretty well this season, Hopefully we can retain him for cheap and then get someone young and talented.

    Love watching D. Hall and Dez Bryant battle. Hope he sticks around in Washington for the long haul.

    He did have a very good year for him. He thinks alot of himself but he backed alot of it up this year.

    D Hall is one of our leaders and always puts the team first. Regardless of what the media says, this guy actually like football and wants to make his team better!

    Ike Taylor is still the best cornerback in the league.

    Good… D Hall is a very good player.

    Ike Taylor isn’t even the best DB on his own team. Bring DHall back HTTR!

    He’s a must sign, he’s one of the few dbs in the NFL who follow the best wr in the game..that’s why he’s stats are not so blown up, just playing on one side of the field like richard sherman..
