DeAngelo Hall Oakland Raiders Signs With Washington Redskins

(With defense like that, Hall’s transition to ‘Skins should be seamless)

Mike Florio of PRO FOOTBALL TALK adds the deal is “for the same prorated $1 million salary he would have received if he had stayed in Oakland. We’re also told that the contract contains a commitment that the Redskins won’t use the franchise tag on Hall in 2009.

His selection of the Redskins resulted in part from the fact he grew up close to Washington, and that he was a Redskins fan while growing up.

Great news for Dan Snyder as he’s finally found a Redskins fan who can’t have his tickets bought out.
