The Washington Post expects DeAngelo Hall to compete for the No. 2 corner job opposite Chris Culliver.
As the Redskins signed Culliver to a four-year, $32 million contract in free agency, he's going to be the heavy favorite over a declining, 31-year-old cornerback in Hall who is recovering from multiple Achilles' ruptures. In an ideal world, Culliver will lock down right cornerback with Bashaud Breeland at LCB, and Hall manning the slot in sub-packages. Jul 24 - 6:20 PM

The Redskins could ask DeAngelo Hall to restructure his contract.

Hall is owed $4 million this season coming off his second Achilles surgery. The Redskins have the cap space for him, but risk paying his entire salary if he has a setback. Hall is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall (Achilles') expects to be full-go for training camp.

Hall was held out of mandatory minicamp after missing OTAs. The Redskins plan to continue to move him along slowly. Hall is expected to compete for playing time at slot corner and perhaps even safety when he gets healthy.

The Redskins are holding DeAngelo Hall (Achilles) out of OTAs.

Just eight months removed from his tendon rupture, Hall says he feels good enough to be out there. But the Redskins will play it safe, giving him another couple months. If truly healthy, Hall could challenge Bashaud Breeland for the No. 2 corner job opposite Chris Culliver.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Jay Gruden hinted that CB DeAngelo Hall could be moved to free safety.

Gruden didn't mention Hall by name, but brought up the fact that many free safeties are converted corners. The Redskins find themselves much deeper than they were at corner a year ago, but with a hole at free safety. Any position switch would be contingent on Hall being healthy. He tore his Achilles' tendon in Week 3 before re-tearing it in October. Due a non-guaranteed $4 million, Hall may not make the Redskins' 53-man roster.

ESPN's John Keim considers DeAngelo Hall a candidate for the Redskins' free safety job.

With Hall coming off two Achilles' surgeries there's concern he doesn't have the speed to stay at corner. Washington doesn't have any proven options over him and signed career-backup Jeron Johnson to start on the strong side. Going on 32, Hall could benefit from moving to a less demanding position. The Redskins are also expected to have interest in FS Dashon Goldson if/when he's released.

The Redskins recently tweaked CB DeAngelo Hall's (Achilles' surgeries) contract, eliminating the $1 million guarantee from his $4 million salary.

The $1 million would've become guaranteed on February 15. It sounds like the Redskins threatened to release Hall if he didn't agree to the tweak. Of course, what's left doesn't set up especially well for Hall, who is going on age 32 and coming off a twice-torn Achilles' tendon. With his $4 million salary wholly non-guaranteed, Hall remains a prime release candidate.

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim "hasn't heard anything to believe" that DeAngelo Hall won't return in 2015.

Entering his age-32 season and coming off two Achilles' surgeries, Hall is due a $4 million salary. He's reportedly on track with his rehab and is expected to be brought back despite injury concerns. The Redskins will have until February 15 to make a decision on Hall, when $1 million of his base salary becomes guaranteed.

DeAngelo Hall re-tore his Achilles' tendon while at home this week.

Hall is already on season-ending I.R. because he tore his Achilles' in Week 3. The latest tear reportedly occurred while Hall was "getting some pizza". He had another surgery on Thursday. It's a five-week setback, though Hall should be ready for training camp next summer. That's not a given, however, with Hall being 31 (next month) and now rupturing the tendon twice in two months.

Redskins placed LCB DeAngelo Hall on injured reserve with a torn Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

Hall is under contract through 2017. It seems like Hall has been in the league forever, but he's still only 31 years old (in November) and will have a chance to return to the Redskins at his 2015 base salary of $4 million. The Skins will move forward with David Amerson and E.J. Biggers at corner.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall tore his Achilles' tendon in Sunday's Week 3 loss at Washington.

It's one of the most devastating injuries a player can have, especially for a 30-year-old corner that relies so heavily on cutting ability. Hall, who signed a four-year, $17 million contract in February, leaves the Redskins very thin in the secondary. They'll continue to be a team for offenses to attack via the air, not the ground.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall left Sunday's Week 3 game at Philadelphia with an Achilles' tendon injury and will not return.

Hall went down without being touched and immediately grabbed his heel. The Redskins will be hoping their top corner is not done for the year with a ruptured Achilles.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 03:10:00 PM

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.
Tue, Feb 18, 2014 04:13:00 PM 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."
