Cornerback DeAngelo Hall is returning to the Washington Redskins on a four-year contract that will pay him between $4 million and $5 million per season, according to reports from the Associated Press and NFL Network. 

Hall, 30, has played the past six seasons for the Redskins and reunited with coordinator Jim Haslett for a unit that was a big disappointment last season. But in 2012, the Redskins won 10 games — partly because of a dynamic offense but also because of a plus-17 turnover ratio and a ballhawking defense.

Hall might get burned time to time, but he does have 43 career interceptions over 10 NFL seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders and Redskins, and the Redskins like his leadership and energy.

The Redskins have a lot of unknowns in their secondary this offseason, but they have kept one would-be free agent in town.
