Default Hall returns to Skins with $54M deal

The Redskins reached an agreement Friday morning to keep cornerback DeAngelo Hall, and made him one of the highest paid cornerbacks in football.


Hall accepted a six-year $54 million deal that included $22.5 million in guarantees, giving the 25-year-old cornerback his second big payday in as many years. Hall was guaranteed around $24 million in a seven-year, $70 million contract he signed a year ago with Oakland, but he struggled to adjust to the Raiders' man-to-man defense and was waived after eight games.

The Redskins picked him up less than a week later, and he provided a needed boost to a secondary beset by too many injuries and not enough big plays. Hall played in seven games and started the last four, eventually moving ahead of Carlos Rogers on the depth chart.

Hall's five interceptions for the season -- three with Oakland, two with Washington -- were three more than any other cornerback on the Redskins' roster. He has a model citizen during his short time in the nation's capital, avoiding the type of temperamental outbursts that prompted the Atlanta Falcons to trade him to Oakland in 2008.

Hall therefore became a top offseason priority, with owner Dan Snyder wanting to work a deal before the cornerback had a chance to test the free agent market. The negotiations with Hall's agents, Alvin Keels and Joel Segal, went to the last minute -- and maybe a little beyond.


The Redskins made an even bigger splash later Friday, agreeing to terms on a seven-year deal worth approximately $100 million with free agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Haynesworth, one of the more highly coveted free agents on the market, led the Tennessee Titans with a career-high 8 sacks last season. He also had 75 tackles, 22 quarterback pressures, seven tackles for a loss and forced a team-high four fumbles.

Coach Jim Zorn has said the team will be active in free agency this year, a change from 2008, when Washington uncharacteristically made no major signings.

The payout of Hall's deal includes $30 million over the first three years.

Where do they get all this money again? Doesn't that put them like a billion dollars over the salary cap?

I guess they are every year, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise.

Is it fair to say that if the Skins don't finish top 5 in total defense next year that it will be the biggest bust of a move since Dallas acquired Roy Williams last season?

Well, at that money if he can average 9 picks a year, that will be a cool mil. per.

He'll give up more TD's than that trying.

Yeah, I don't understand how you can get a contract for $8 million a year, play so badly that you get cut from the Raiders, and then that somehow bumps your salary up even more.

He got cut from the Raiders because he couldn't adjust to playing man coverage. Signing him in the first place was a total BS move... once again the Raiders tried to "make" a player into something he isn't. He fits in much better with the Skins.

That may be true ... but not being able to play man coverage is a pretty glaring weakness if you're an NFL cornerback, don't you think? Especially for a man who had as high an opinion of himself as Hall.

I agree. I really thought he would start to get the hang of it, but he continually played 10 yards off his man ALL the time... and got burned ALL the time. He has been a zone corner his whole career... and I think he is overrated in that scheme too.
