Redskins bring back CB Hall
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Washington Redskins and pending unrestricted free agent cornerback DeAngelo Hall have agreed to terms on a reported four-year contract.
According to NFL.com, Hall will receive an average of nearly $5 million per season over the life of the deal.
The Redskins have yet to announce the signing, but Hall confirmed he will return to the team in a twitter message to quarterback Robert Griffin III.
"I'm BACK lil bro. Let's be #Great #(Hail to the Redskins) for LIFE," Hall tweeted.
Hall posted 78 tackles and four interceptions -- two of which were returned for touchdowns -- over 16 games last season for Washington, his fifth full campaign with the franchise.
A Virginia Tech product heading into his 11th pro season, Hall has recorded 717 tackles, 43 interceptions (five for TDs) and two sacks in 149 appearances for the Falcons, Raiders and Redskins. The 30-year-old has been named to the Pro Bowl three times (2005, 2006, 2010) over the course of his career.
