[B]Hall Agrees to One-Year Deal with Skins[/B]

[FONT=Times New Roman,times,serif] Free-agent corner DeAngelo Hall has agreed to a one-year deal with the Redskins, according to a source.
Hall, a two-time Pro Bowler, was released by Oakland this week and cleared waivers. With Hall, a Virginia Tech product and Chesapeake, Va., native, signing here, corner Shawn Springs could end up playing more at safety. The Redskins lack depth at free safety, and by moving Springs back there, LaRon Landry would be free to wreak more havoc near the line of scrimmage both in the run game and as a blitzer (Washington;s pass rush has been weak and often blitzing linebackers and defensive backs have failed to get to the passer).

Could not be happier!

Great job agian by our FO. Lets hope Halls last 2 years have been humbling for him, and he brings a good work ethic to the team.

It's too early to say if this move is good for us or not, however I don't think it is mistake for FO to make this move.. After all it is just one year contract..


It's interesting to hear that Springs might play at safety.. I don't think that would be good news, since Horton is blossoming and continues to do so..

Hall didn't seem be too interested in playing football while at Oakland. The article I read on his performance indicated he wasn't covering guys too well.

I'm hoping he turns into our Randy Moss.

Oakland is a graveyard for so many NFL careers.

I'll take a wait and see approach with this move. I'm not a hall fan. I know we could use the help with all the woes/injuries with SS at Corner.

But I just hope they got him at a good price AND he is ready to grow up. And also turn his career around and be a decent corner in this league, I have my doubts.

Hall was getting burned to a crisp in Oakland. I'm gonna go on the record and state that I do not like this move. Hall's ego is twice as big as his talent, and he's always been overrated imo. If he sees the field we wouldn't even have to worry about Rogers being targeted because teams would automatically start picking on Hall.

The idea of Springs moving to Safety still doesn't sit well with me though. I thought that Horton was doing a pretty good job back there. Our dime package should be pretty nasty regardless.

I am happy we got him, but now I want to see what we are going to do scheme wise.

The good news is that we only have to pay for one season to see if he works out or not. Say he plays great, we should be able to get him for a reasonable contract or just cut his ass like Oakland.
