DeAngelo Hall signs 4-year deal with Redskins
Cornerback led NFL team with 4 interceptions this past season
DeAngelo Hall has signed his four-year contract to remain with the Washington Redskins.
The Redskins announced the deal Wednesday, a day after the three-time Pro Bowl cornerback agreed to terms.
A person familiar with the negotiations says the contract is worth between $4 million and $5 million USper year. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team did not announce the financial details.
Hall, 30, took a pay cut last year to help get the Redskins under the salary cap. He led the team with four interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns. He also returned a fumble for a score.
Hall has 43 career interceptions over 10 seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders and Redskins. He has played 5 1/2 seasons in Washington.
Hall told Comcast SportsNet: "I came back, sacrificed myself for the team, and it's nice to be rewarded for that."
With the cap penalty behind them, the Redskins have plenty of money to spend, but they have a lot of players to sign. Hall was one of seven Redskins defensive starters set to become free agents next month. At the top of the list is outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, while middle linebacker London Fletcher has said he plans to retire.
The Redskins were 3-13 last season and ranked next-to-last in points allowed per game, but much of the slide could be credited to team-wide dysfunction in the latter days of coach Mike Shanahan's tenure. Shanahan was fired at the end of the season and replaced by Jay Gruden, who decided to retain defensive co-ordinator Jim Haslett.
