Report: DeAngelo Hall released by Redskins

In an attempt to create salary cap flexibility, the Washington Redskins have released 29-year-old cornerback DeAngelo Hall, according to Washington Post beat writer Mike Jones.

The Redskins had signed Hall to a six-year deal with $55 million in 2009 and will be saving $8 million in cap space by releasing the veteran. Hall pulled down four interceptions and recorded 68 tackles in 2012 for the Redskins while playing in all 16 games.
