(NEW YORK) — Even after testing the free agent market, cornerback DeAngelo Hall has decided to remain with the Washington Redskins, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Hall and the Redskins have agreed on a one year deal to keep him in Washington. The team had originally cut him to save much needed cap space.
“He’s given everything I’ve asked him to give. He’s gotten better each year,” Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said at the time of Hall’s release. “He’s done the little things the right way and when you have to tell somebody that they’re not going to be on your football team, it’s a little hard, especially when your plan was to take care of the guys that took care of you.”
Luckily for Shanahan and Hall, the separation didn’t last very long.
The 29-year-old Hall has spent the past 4 1/2 years in Washington. Over that time, he has racked up 19 interceptions over that time.
Despite Hall’s success, the Redskins still ranked 30th in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game.
