The Washington Redskins are "highly likely" to release veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall, the Washington Post reported Friday based on information from a source.
Hall is scheduled to make $8 million next season, but the Redskins are about $3 million over the salary cap, largely because of the $36 million penalty over two years that resulted from the way the Redskins structured contracts during the uncapped 2010 season.
The Redskins have not yet had talks with Hall about restructuring his contract.
Since Hall said at the end of the 2012 season that he's be willing to rework his contract to stay with the Redskins, it may indicate Hall is not in their plans.
Hall, 29, started all 16 regular-season games for the third consecutive season in 2012, when he had four interceptions.
