DeAngelo Hall

DeAngelo Hall is the leader of the Redskins defensive backfield. He has had up and down moments on the field over his time with Washington but has performed well enough that the team will wait through his recovery.

Hall has played some of his best football over the past few seasons with the Redskins. He only played in 3 games in 2014 before getting injured. From 2010-2013, Hall had 17 INTs, returning 3 for TDs with 59 passes defensed.

Hall has become somewhat of a coach on the field

Hall began the 2014 season with a 1.09 rating versus Houston. He followed that up with a 1.00 rating in week 2 versus the Jaguars. Hall didn’t give up any TDs or have any passes defensed in the 3 games that he played.

Hall has become somewhat of a coach on the field and will be welcomed back if he is able to recover from his injury. Stopping and cutting is difficult to do without a strong achilles tendon. The Redskins will probably have some veteran insurance on hand in case Hall isn’t able to recover.
