Redskins re-signed CB DeAngelo Hall to a four-year, $17 million contract.
The important number will be how much is guaranteed. Going on 31 and never exactly the most consistent player, Hall likely isn't getting any guaranteed money beyond 2014. Playing on a one-year, $1.25 million deal last season, Hall started all 16 games for the fourth consecutive year, notching 78 tackles, four picks and three forced fumbles. He was the No. 84 (out of 110) cornerback in Pro Football Focus' ratings. Feb 18 - 4:13 PM

Date: reports contract talks between the Redskins and free agent CB DeAngelo Hall are "intensifying."

PFT's Mike Florio reports the sides are "not close to an agreement," but "progress is being made." Hall earned just $1.25 million on a one-year contract last season, and figures to at least double that sum after a solid campaign. He was one of the Redskins' few defenders who had an above-average year.

The Redskins have begun multi-year contract negotiations with free agent DB DeAngelo Hall.

We use "DB" as opposed to "CB" because Hall has expressed a willingness to move to safety. The Redskins, of course, have needs at both safety and corner, so Hall could easily stay with them at his natural position. It seems like Hall has been around forever, but he's only 30 years old, having turned so in November. DC Jim Haslett has called his re-signing an offseason "priority."
Feb 2 - 6:19 PM

Impending free agent DeAngelo Hall says there's a "good chance" he re-signs with the Redskins.

Hall was a guest on FOX Football Daily on Wednesday. He also said he'd "love" to transition from cornerback to safety. Hall was released by the Redskins last offseason, drew little interest on the open market, and then re-signed with Washington. He started all 16 games and registered 78 tackles, four picks, and 13 pass breakups. Hall has lost a step or five in recent years but still has some game left in him at 30 years old. He played the slot some in 2013.

Redskins LCB DeAngelo Hall will miss anywhere from two days to two weeks after an MRI revealed sprained ligaments in the back of his ankle.

"Certain movements, I'm good with," he said. "Certain movements, I can't put any pressure on it. It's kind of funky. It's all kind of new to me." Hall has played all 16 games in three straight years. His Week 1 status isn't in danger.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall's $1 million base salary isn't guaranteed.

Only Hall's $250,000 signing bonus is guaranteed. "MeAngelo" could make another $1 million through incentives. It's very likely Hall makes Redskins' 53-man roster and guarantees his salary, but he's going to have to be on his game — and best behavior — in camp.

Redskins re-signed CB DeAngelo Hall to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.

Returning to Washington at a reduced rate was always a possibility, and became likelier and likelier as the 29-year-old drew zero interest after being released three weeks ago. Hall started all 17 games last season and recorded 102 tackles, 15 pass breakups, and four interceptions. Teaming Hall with Josh Wilson and E.J. Biggers gives the Redskins a decent cornerback trio, and signing free agent CB Antoine Winfield still isn't out of the question.

GM Martin Mayhew said the Lions have no interest in free agent CB DeAngelo Hall.

Erroneous reports out of Washington last week had Hall actually signing with the Lions. Mayhew was quick to shoot those down. He is still in the market for a corner to book end Chris Houston. Bill Bentley did not look up to task as a rookie.

The Redskins have left the door open for free agent DeAngelo Hall to return on a reduced salary.

Beat writer John Keim also passes along buzz in the agent community that Hall may re-sign in Washington. "I heard they were bringing D-Hall back," said one agent, who reps a different cornerback. The Skins whiffed on Aqib Talib and Derek Cox in free agency. Hall should be an affordable fallback option, assuming he's willing to swallow his pride. The Redskins cut "MeAngelo" on March 11.

Dan Hellie of NBC Washington reports the Cowboys are interested in free agent DeAngelo Hall to play free safety.

Hall gets deservingly ripped for his man coverage, but he's always been a quietly strong tackler with ball skills. It would make sense for Hall to try free safety in order to prolong his career. The Cowboys have scant cap space, but a cheap one-year deal could be a win for Hall if he doesn't get better offers.

Updating a previous item, the Lions have not signed free agent CB DeAngelo Hall.

A Washington-area reporter jumped the gun, and Detroit beat writers have shot down the rumor and labeled it as "false." Hall will go back to the open market with all of the other recently released veteran cornerbacks.

Lions signed CB DeAngelo Hall, formerly of the Redskins.

Hall, 29, was just released by Washington on Monday. Detroit is in desperate need of cornerback help, and they wasted no time in picking one up before the market opened. Hall was set to earn $8 million with the Redskins in 2013, but he'll be lucky to get half that from the Lions. It's unclear what this means for the future of free agent CB Chris Houston in Detroit, but Hall doesn't solve a lot of problems. The Lions need more on the back end.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the team would be willing to bring free agent CB DeAngelo Hall back if he doesn't sign elsewhere.

It would obviously be at a much lower price than the $8 million he was scheduled to make. Although he's been one of the more burnable starters in the league lately, we'd expect Hall to find a new home.

Redskins released CB DeAngelo Hall.

The expected move clears $8 million in cap space. Hall was a disappointment practically since the ink dried on the six-year, $55 million deal he signed in 2009, but his release leaves an already undermanned secondary even thinner. The Redskins need to make multiple defensive back additions this offseason. Going on 30, Hall is being thrust onto a jam-packed cornerback market, essentially taking the retiring Chris Gamble's place. He should have plenty of suitors, but won't get guaranteed money beyond 2013.

Citing a source close to the situation, the Washington Post considers it "highly likely" that the Redskins will release DeAngelo Hall.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first mentioned Hall as a release candidate Thursday, but the Redskins were expected to make a "take it or leave it" pay-cut offer. It appears they won't go that route, instead outright cutting the 10-year veteran. The Skins are currently $3 million over the cap, and releasing Hall would clear $8 million. Hall has been routinely torched in coverage in D.C.
