Redskins get DeAngelo Hall back at their price

National Football Post

The Washington Redskins wound up keeping a cornerback they did not want to lose in the first place.

DeAngelo Hall agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the club late Monday night, returning less than a month after he was released.

According to John Keim of the Washington Examiner, the Redskins will pay Hall $2.25 million this season, a sign of the tough marketplace there is for experienced players. Before Hall was cut, he was to count about $8 million against the team’s cap.

It’s been tough going for the Redskins this offseason because they are in the second year of NFL-imposed salary cap penalties. Washington has been docked $18 million against the cap this season. But Keim notes that of all the players the Redskins had that they wanted to retain, only linebacker Lorenzo Alexander has departed. Twelve players have signed with the club. Still, the cap penalty has made it difficult to do anything more than clearance shopping.
