The Washington Redskins have released cornerback DeAngelo Hall due to the team facing the NFL’s salary cap penalty. The Redskins are over the cap due to an $18 million sanction by the NFL for the structure of their contracts during the cap-free 2010 season. Hall signed in Washington following the 2008 season after splitting time between Okland and Washington. The deal was for six-years and $54 million. Hall was due to make $7.5 million in 2013.
Last season, Hall had four interceptions after switching from outside corner to the nickelback position. He was suspended in week 8 for confroting a referee and was fined $30,000 for the altercation.
