Redskins, Hall making progress toward a new deal

When cornerback DeAngelo Hall said that the Redskins “probably” should change their name, it appeared that the impending free agent probably should look for a new team.

Hall has since put the toothpaste back in the tube, and the team could end up putting some new money in his pocket.

Per a league source, talks are intensifying between the Redskins and Hall toward a new contract.  While not close to an agreement, progress is being made.

A first-round pick of the Falcons 10 years ago who turned 30 in November 2013, Hall joined the Redskins in 2008, after being cut in the middle of the season by the Raiders and receiving $8 million for eight games.

Hall hasn’t been making quite as much lately.  In 2013, Hall earned $1.25 million on a one-year deal.  He has started every game since 2010; last year, Hall had four interceptions, three forced fumbles, and a pair of touchdowns.

    Sadly Hall is our best DB so we will have to sign him.

    Come to green bay, you would be an upgrade over everyone on defense, except A.J. turd, lol

  3. kaeprulestheworld says: Feb 16, 2014 9:17 PM

    He still has some ball left in him.

  4. berniemadoffsides says: Feb 16, 2014 9:19 PM

    Worth $5M/year, IMO. Not a shutdown CB, but he makes big plays.

  5. crabcakesfootball says: Feb 16, 2014 9:23 PM

    I wonder where the clause is where he cant question the team name anymore.

    Danny Boy will make sure Hall doesnt talk about that anymore.

    And then it will leak out and the Skins PR guru will blow the response.

    Wasn’t a big DHall fan when he first came to DC, but I really like the way he has played the last couple seasons. He doesn’t have the same on field antics he used to and is very involved in the dmv community. Thanks 23 and we are happy to have you stay in DC

    Hope we resign d Hall.

  8. The Steelers cast such an immense shadow over the league. There's no wonder why we are so widely envied. We are superior. We have six Lombardis. What do you have ☹? says: Feb 16, 2014 9:39 PM

    Six rings.

  9. cwk22 says: Feb 16, 2014 9:48 PM

    These constant posts by steeler fans are childish. Every Steeler fan I know is an idiot. My boss’s response to not making the play offs or getting to the Super Bowl again this year. It doesn’t matter we have 6 rings.

  10. thestrategyexpert says: Feb 16, 2014 9:53 PM

    He was pesky against Detroit when he got some of those stats.

  11. higheriqthanyou says: Feb 16, 2014 9:55 PM

    Good news is Steelers are an organization in decay much like their city.

  12. cluelessdufus says: Feb 16, 2014 10:01 PM

    Can’t tell what is worse. The Steeler’s fan base or my Vikings fan base…smh.

  13. thevikesarebest says: Feb 16, 2014 10:05 PM

    Come to the best organization and join the Viking dynasty next season.why share a locker room with rgnoknee then come to MINNESOTA.SKOL

    I don’t know why people want to hate on D Hall. He is a very good player and also has that passion on and off the field that makes teams better. I love the way in gets in Dez Bryant’s face and in his head twice a year. I watch just about every snap of every Skins game and the only time I see Hall getting burnt is when he has to cover a WR for way more time than he should be. With a decent pass rush and some pressure on the QB, Hall is as good as any DB in the NFL in my opinion.

    Hail to the Seahawks.

    Hail to the Seahawks.

  17. nemesder says: Feb 16, 2014 10:27 PM

    Get him back then put talib on the other side or Byrd in the back

  18. boycord says: Feb 16, 2014 10:52 PM

    Not sure why a potential signing by the DC Football Club grabs a headline. The organization has been irrelevant for over two decades. It doesn’t matter who puts the uniform on or how much they are payed. The end result is irrelevant. What’s next, an article on who they are targeting with their second-round pick? Hail this.

  19. spoaktown707 says: Feb 16, 2014 11:08 PM

    Maybe he gets cut halfway through the season?
    He seems to do that sometimes.

  20. badmoonrison says: Feb 16, 2014 11:30 PM

    Glad my raiders got rid of his cancerous butt. Even still, he looks terrible in that ugly uniform. At least he doesn’t have predator-type dreadlocks like RGMe I guess…

  21. skinsdiehard says: Feb 17, 2014 12:19 AM

    They should only sign Hall as a nickel back. Amerson and a free agent signee should start. D-Hall is a playmaker. I just dont know how clutch.

  23. seminstains says: Feb 17, 2014 1:45 AM

    Hall needs to learn to shut the Fxxx up on the field. Never seen anyone run there mouth to receivers and being down by 20 or more points. Yes he does make big plays now and then, but he gets burned 10 times before that. Go ahead skins sign him

  24. defscottyb says: Feb 17, 2014 2:39 AM

    Any real Skins fan will be sorry when Hall is gone, trust me. When he’s making plays for another team or returning a pick 6 against the Skins. Also, sign Fletch to one more year and let’s send him into the hall of fame with another ring.

  25. defscottyb says: Feb 17, 2014 2:40 AM

    Oh yeah… Go Hokies!

  26. asw1028 says: Feb 17, 2014 2:46 AM

    Hall is a very good cover corner. He’s not physical and he shies away from tackles but I don’t hold that against him because it’s kept him healthy. What would you rather have–a CB who can hit hard but misses games each season or a CB who is good in coverage and is available every week?

  27. joeflaccospuremediocrity says: Feb 17, 2014 3:42 AM

    The Ravens will always finish second place in the Baltimore/D.C. area.

  28. djshnooks says: Feb 17, 2014 5:26 AM

    I’m amazed this guy is still making plays.

    Certainly seems worth the money if he continues playing at a high level.

  29. haileysbadoldad says: Feb 17, 2014 5:38 AM

    Can’t handle the shifty receivers like Desean Jackson but shuts down the big ones like Dez or Brandon Marshall. We can’t afford to let any talent we have get away, and on defense Hall, Orakpo, and Kerrigan are the only ones worth keeping

  30. hawkstradamus says: Feb 17, 2014 6:59 AM

    Hall wouldn’t make the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks practice squad.

  31. ugadogs21 says: Feb 17, 2014 7:37 AM

    Spending millions to change the name and branding will yield a better return than spending millions to keep Hall.

  32. blackqbwhiterb says: Feb 17, 2014 8:21 AM

    As a prominent blogger on all things Redskins wrote last week, nobody has made more INT’s for the Redskins in the last 20 seasons, including Champ Bailey, Darrell Green, Sean Taylor, Shawn Springs or anyone else. (Again, in the last 20 seasons)….So they’d better keep him until someone better comes along. He has been maturing and behaving well. He’s great against big strong wr’s like Dez Bryant. He seems to struggle with speed guys, plays off quite a bit more than I’d like…But hey, I ain’t coaching…

    Why do people make things so easy? First, grow a set. Anyone who refers to the Skins as “DC Football Club” is either a pansy soccer fan, or a simple minded twit that is easily told what to think. If you are in fact a male, my guess is that you probably sit down to pee, because a woman told you that standing up is too messy for you.

    Also, it is “PAID” not “PAYED”. So, Hail This!

    Don’t change your name – Washington Redskins is a great name

  36. randomcommenter says: Feb 17, 2014 10:59 AM

    Hall hopes this contract will help him retain his place on the list of most overrated and overpaid players of all time.

  37. ravanator says: Feb 17, 2014 11:01 AM

    Good plan, resign an aging DB that helped your defense be the worst in league. The Landover R-Words are irrelevant. We have two superbowl rings in the last 15 years, R-Words envy our greatness.

    I would like to used him at free safety

  39. defscottyb says: Feb 17, 2014 11:14 PM

    D Hall is a leader of men, frankly I would make him the new D Captain if indeed Fletch is really going to retire.

  40. rainsarge says: Feb 18, 2014 1:02 PM

    D-hall 23 int as a Redskin 5 defensive TD
