Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

Im glad we got him for a good price and who knows he could be Shawn Springs replacement. If he runs his mouth and acts like a jerk we cut him loose.

I can GUARANTEE you that he won't be wearing a #21 on his jersey! Or at least I'm willing to take that bet with anyone on this planet, until that decision is made!

Even when the contract value is negligible, there is still an opportunity cost of having underachieving players on the roster.
Shaun Alexander will be on the bench once Ladell Betts returns from his injury. Just like D. Hall will be on the bench behind Rogers, Springs, and Smoot if he doesn't work out.

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

This is hilarious:

Quote:
One fact further illustrates just how bad and embarrassing Oakland’s trade for cornerback DeAngelo Hall this offseason actually was.

In addition to a fifth-round pick, the Raiders also traded a second-round pick, the 34th overall selection, to Atlanta for Hall. Well, on draft day, the Falcons wound up trading the 34th and 48th overall pick to Washington for the 21st overall pick.

Now, some six months later, the Redskins wound up with Hall and the Raiders second-round pick, which they used on Michigan State wide receiver Devon Thomas. And it cost Oakland $8 million!

Exactly. Its a bye week, so of course this is the only thing to get worked up about.

But as nervous as we all have been to see Torrence on the field in pressure situations, won't you be a little more comfortable with Hall in that same position? All the talk about how much the guy has been picked on this year overlooks one small thing, he was playing opposite the best shut down corner in football right now in Asomugha.

I think the most telling statement came from Arthur Blank when he said that Hall just needed to grow up. Well, getting cut from Oakland and having the opportunity to play for the team he grew up wanting to play for may be the spark he needed. He's 24, he's been on top of the world (2 Pro Bowls) and through adversity. He's probably our 2nd most athletic corner right now, with Springs physicality making him numero uno.

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

According to Vinnie, he consulted with Griff, and London Fletcher before pulling the trigger on the Hall deal. He says they were both HIGHLY in favor of the deal.

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I wonder if that discussion included telling them that Torrence was the most likely to be waived.

It probably went along the lines of...

Vinnie: "Hey Griff, London, we're thinking about dropping Leigh for some other CB. What do you guys think?"

Chorus: "Effin A!"

Vinnie: "Don't you want to know who?"

Chorus: "Does it matter?"



*Actually, Torrence wasn't all that bad in my book given his role/salary. But I'll take the prospect of what Hall could be for this team over what Torrence already is.

Hall: 'This Is the Place for Me'

From Jason La Canfora:

DeAngelo Hall said he chose the Redskins over other suitors because he is from southern virginia, and grew ip dreaming of playing here. He said he hopes to have a future here well beyond the one-year deal he signed.

"I just kind of feel like this is the place for me," said Hall, who said his release from Oakland was based solely on his contract and not his conduct. Hall also said of the Skins: "it came down to what team do I feel like I have a future with."

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

Hall did an int with Doc, and Kevin a little on 980am a little while ago.
It was great! He took his poison for his alleged sins of the past. He handled it well, said he wants to prove people wrong about him and hopes to have a long term future here, and best of all..........he said.....I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET THE COWBOYS!!!!
HTTR!!!!!!

I like D Hall, I bet he works out good for us! He will take some time, but I like the depth!

It'd be career suicide for D. Hall if he doesn't play well here. He has the chance to be a 3rd/4th string CB with the opportunity to play as much as a 2nd/3rd string CB (due to injuries). Whether he stays with the Redskins or goes somewhere else, he needs to prove himself on the field. I think Hall has been humbled by this situation, going from being worth picks and big $$ to being waived and having to play for almost the vet min.

Re: Hall agrees to one year deal with skins

I suppose I am showing my rookie stripes with this question.
How will the continuity factor be impacted by Hall replacing Torrence? I mean setting aside any locker room factor, how hard will it be say for Landry, who is used to Torrence, and knows about how he would react in a given situation, now to play around Hall's strengths and weaknesses. I do remember Trotter and Arrington often ending up in the same spot on the field (right or wrong).
How long will it take for the secondary to adjust to Hall's reactions?
