DeAngelo Hall fined $20,000 for horse collar


Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall would probably like to tell the NFL to back up off his wallet, bro.

Hall was fined three times during the 2012 season, including a $30,000 fine for berating an official which led to his request that reporters back up off him when they wanted comment about the incident. Hall’s off to a quick start on the fine front this year as well.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Hall has been fined $20,000 for a horse collar tackle during the team’s Monday night loss to the Eagles. Hall was penalized during the game for yanking Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson down by the collar on a play that helped set up an Eagles touchdown that extended the team’s lead to 19-7. According to Jones, Hall plans to appeal the fine.

Hall’s night got off to a better start when he returned a backward pass by Eagles quarterback Michael Vick for a touchdown in the first quarter. His three fines last season wound up totaling $65, 750 with the official incident happening against Pittsburgh and the other two resulting from incidents in the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys.
