Washington Redskins Release DeAngelo Hall

Ladies and gentlemen we are off and running, free agency opens up at midnight and the new season will begin. Big roster moves are going to be continued to be made and another big one has just been announced.

The Washington Redskins have just released 10 year veteran corner-back DeAngelo Hall.

DeAngelo Hall entered the league with the Atlanta Falcons in 2004 and played 4 seasons with them.

He signed the the Oakland Raiders in 2008 but was later traded to the Washington Redskins for their 2nd round pick and has been with the team until today.

Hall was contacted by Head Coach Mike Shanahan, who called him and broke the news to him.

“I understand the business side of things. I thanked him for the opportunity and wished them the best of luck.”

The Washington Redskins decided to release him and clear $8 million from their cap instead of restructuring a deal to keep him in Washington.

In his 10 years in the National Football League, DeAngelo Hall has 639 tackles, 2 sacks, 39 interceptions and 3 touchdowns. Now the next question is, what to do now? Will he test the market in hopes of being brought on board with another franchise, or will he decided to hang up his cleats and live life after football.
