DeAngelo Hall agrees to 4-year deal to stay with the Redskins

DeAngelo Hall showed in 2013 that he still has at least a little bit left in the tank, and the Washington Redskins rewarded him with a four-year contract on Tuesday. NBCWashington first reported the deal.

The 30-year-old Hall was released by Washington last offseason to cut $8 million off the salary cap, then re-signed on a cheap one-year deal. He led the team in interceptions with four and added 78 tackles.

Washington defensive coordinator Jim Haslett recently named re-signing Hall as one of the priorities this offseason, along with keeping Brian Orakpo, Perry Riley and Chris Baker in the fold. "There's a bunch of them," said Haslett, referencing the team's defensive free agents, "so we'd like to have those guys back."

Hall has three Pro Bowls under his belt: 2005 and '06 with Atlanta and '10 in Washington. His play has slipped since then, but the Redskins are not exactly in a position to cast off contributors in the secondary. Plus, Hall has left open the door for a shift to safety, where Washington was underwhelming last season.

Washington did head into the offseason with a projected $26 million surplus under the 2014 salary cap, as the penalties imposed on the franchise by the NFL two years ago expired. The franchise does not, however, have a first-round pick -- Washington would be selecting No. 2 overall had it not been for its blockbuster trade with the Rams prior to the 2012 draft, which brought Robert Griffin III to the nation's capital. The Redskins did spend three draft picks on the secondary last April, landing them CB David Amerson and safeties Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo.
