Just a few days after being cut by the dreadful Oakland Raiders, DeAngelo Hall has signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Washington Redskins. He joins Jason Taylor, London Fletcher and Pete Kendall as overpaid guys who used to be incredible athletes, but were then evicted from their teams because of their attitude, contract, or because they just plain stunk.
Hall falls into the latter category. While he was once a great cornerback in Atlanta, he has shown that it was the benefit of a zone coverage scheme and has struggled greatly to cover wide receivers in man-to-man situations.
Having said all that, he will help the Washington defense by being one of the guys, instead of the main shutdown corner, which he hasn't been for some time now.
