The expectations were pretty low when the Redskins signed DeAngelo Hall to a one-year contract a few days after the Raiders decided to cut bait. Oakland forked over eight million bucks for eight weeks of substandard cornerback play, which had been Hall's calling card during his four-year career.
Despite the overrated label, several teams were interested in Hall's services, but he settled on the Redskins because the Virginia native wanted to be close to home. While the former Virginia Tech star and Falcons first-round pick hasn't been spectacular in Washington, he's been surprisingly steady.
So steady, in fact, that he replaced Carlos Rogers in the starting lineup a few weeks ago, and now, according to the Washington Post's Jason La Canfora, the 'Skins are trying to sign him to a new deal.
