CSN Mid-Atlantic's Tarik El-Bashir believes DeAngelo Hall has one of the starting safety spots locked down.
The Washington Post said the same in early April. The real question will come at the other safety position, where ex-Bronco David Bruton, run-stuffer Duke Ihenacho, and second-round pick Su'a Cravens will do battle in training camp. May 21 - 10:43 AM

The Washington Post believes DeAngelo Hall is "currently set" to begin the year as the Redskins' starting free safety.

That's where Hall ended 2015, and the Redskins have yet to add meaningful competition. That could change in the draft, but the Redskins have talked up Hall's safety prowess all offseason. Long one of the highest paid cornerbacks in the league, Hall turns 33 in November.
Apr 5 - 3:04 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Tarik El-Bashir believes DeAngelo Hall could open 2016 as a starter at safety for the Redskins.

Hall performed well after switching to safety late last season, and an offseason working at the position will only make him more comfortable. Coach Jay Gruden believes Hall can "solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the league." The spot next to Hall remains an open question. Dashon Goldson is unlikely to return at his current $8 million cap hit, and he is not starter quality at this point in his career. The Redskins should address the position in free agency or the draft.

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall will remain at safety going forward.

Hall made the move to free safety following Week 11, and coach Jay Gruden liked what he saw. Gruden believes D-Hall is going to "solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the league" going forward. Going by Pro Football Focus' ratings, Hall was initially an adventure at safety before showing major improvement in Weeks 15-17. He wouldn't be the first big-name corner to make the transition to safety. Hall is due $4.25 million in 2016, but Gruden's comments suggest the Redskins will pay it.
Jan 11 - 3:19 PM

Redskins FS DeAngelo Hall suffered a calf injury Week 16 against the Eagles.

Hall said rehab is going well, but he is not sure if he will play against the Cowboys. Coach Jay Gruden has already said he will consider sitting injured players, but Hall could use more snaps at his new free safety spot before the playoffs.

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall says he feels "reinvigorated" by moving to safety.

Hall made the move to free safety after returning from an eight-week injury absence in Week 11. "I don’t want to try to play safety another two years in this league just to get a pay check," Hall said. "I want to play it because I feel like I could help us, or any team, win games. . . . I’m doing it because I think I can be a difference maker, and be damned good at it." Hall has graded out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings, but that's to be expected for someone making a mid-season position switch. Hall is signed for $4.25 million each of the next two seasons. A decision on his 2016 position should come early in the offseason. Hall will have to take a pay cut wherever he lines up next season.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden suggested CB DeAngelo Hall will see time at free safety.

Hall returned to the lineup Sunday after missing five games with a toe injury but only played 18 snaps. The Redskins mostly used him as a safety in dime packages. "We have two corners that are playing pretty good so there's a chance he'll get work at free safety," said Gruden. "We're not throwing him to the curb at corner by any stretch. But it'd be a great transition for him because of his athletic ability and his ball skills." The lead-footed Dashon Goldson has been one of the worst free safeties in football this year so the Redskins could certainly use help at that position.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (questionable, toe) will return for Sunday's game against the Saints.

It's not clear how big of a role Hall will have after missing the last five games. With Chris Culliver (knee) and Bashaud Breeland (hamstring) probable, the Redskins secondary is fully healthy for Week 10.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (toe) expects to return from his five-game absence against the Saints.

It's unclear what Hall's role will be as he returns from his prolonged absence. Will Blackmon has seen heavy snaps behind Bashaud Breeland and Chris Culliver during Hall's absence. Culliver just returned from a long absence of his own in Week 9.

Redskins LCB DeAngelo Hall will miss at least 3-to-4 weeks with a Grade 2 right toe tear.

It's only a partial tear. He'll see a foot specialist to see if surgery is required. This is actually good news for Hall as the injury looked much worse than it was. Bashaud Breeland figures to take over as the Redskins' starting left cornerback with Justin Rogers covering the slot in nickel packages.

Redskins LCB DeAngelo Hall was forced from Washington's Week 3 game against the Giants with a right leg injury.

It had the looks of a season-ender. Hall went down in non-contact fashion, and was helped to the sideline before being carted to the locker room. It very well could have been his Achilles', though the Redskins are claiming it's his toe. That diagnosis will almost certainly be updated on Friday. Hall tore his left Achilles' twice in 2014.

The Washington Post doesn’t consider DeAngelo Hall’s roster spot in jeopardy.

There was speculation over Hall’s status after playing in the preseason finale, but he’s expected to be one of the Redskins’ top three corners. Hall could start Week 1 opposite Chris Culliver, with David Amerson or Justin Rogers playing in nickel.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 05:14:00 PM

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall will play in Thursday's preseason finale.

At risk of reading too deeply into it, it could be a sign that Hall's roster spot isn't assured. It's highly unusual for a 31-year-old, 12-year veteran to play in the exhibition finale, even coming off an injury-ruined season.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 04:53:00 PM

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall (toe) returned to practice Sunday.

Hall was only able to work in individual drills, but should graduate to full-team work soon enough. Hall could suit up in the Redskins' third preseason game.
Mon, Aug 24, 2015 08:46:00 AM

X-rays on Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall's toe came back negative.

Coach Jay Gruden said the injury is not major and Hall is day to day. Hall has had a run of injuries as he attempts to come back from two Achilles' surgeries. He missed several practices with a groin injury early in camp, and he will likely be sidelined several more with this injury. Hall is expected to man the slot in sub-packages, but his health cannot be taken for granted.
