Washington Redskins Could Release DeAngelo Hall

The Washington Redskins need to clear out some cap sapce in order to get under the salary cap and there is one player in their defensive backfield that could be a cap casualty.

During an appearance by Adam Schefter on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Schefter pointed out Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall as a player that could be released.

Schefter said, “Hall is scheduled to make $8 million, that would come off the books for next season. He will be a candidate that the Redskins will look at to try to get back underneath the salary cap.”

Washington is currently needs to clear $4 million just to reach the cap limit. By cutting Hall, the Redskins would be under the salary cap.

If Hall hits the open market, he could join soon to be released Nnamdi Asomugha and the apparently soon to be traded Darrelle Revis as former Pro Bowl talents available.
