DeAngelo Hall: 'It's Nice To Be Rewarded'

Posted Feb 19, 2014

The Washington Redskins confirmed the re-signing of soon-to-be free agent cornerback DeAngelo Hall this morning, as he signed his contract at Redskins Park.

The Washington Redskins confirmed the re-signing of soon-to-be free agent cornerback DeAngelo Hall this morning, as he signed his contract at Redskins Park.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the contract is reported to be for multiple years.

The new contract ensures that Hall, 30, a native of Chesapeake, Va., returns to the burgundy and gold.

In an exclusive interview with Redskins.com in December, Hall said that a return to his favorite childhood team was his ultimate offseason priority.

“It was really important for me to return here this offseason,” he said. “I did an interview with Darrell Green a couple weeks ago and he asked, ‘Are you a hired man? Are you a Redskin? What are you?’

“I’m like, ‘I’m a Redskin. I grew up a Redskins fan and I wanted to be considered a Redskin for the majority of my career. I felt like the defining moment was me signing back here to get that deal done to come back here.’”

Hall was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2004 and played there four seasons before signing a blockbuster free agent deal with the Oakland Raiders in 2008. After a midseason fire-sale, Hall came home to the Redskins and had four and-a-half seasons in the burgundy and gold.

After 2013, he has spent exactly half of his 11-year career in the Nation’s Capital.

“I wanted to make it a point to come back here so I can say that I was a Redskin for the majority of my career,” he said. “Hopefully, I can finish my career here.”

Now, he has a chance.

Speaking to CSNWashington in the last 24 hours, Hall said it was nice to see his hard work in Washington pay off with a new contract.

"We agreed to terms today," he said with a smile. "[It's] something we've been going back and forth with the last couple of weeks and I'm excited.

"You know, it makes me feel good, you know that my hard work is getting rewarded. I am came back, sacrificed myself for the team and you know, it's nice to be rewarded for that.

"It's nice to be appreciated."
