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.
