LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — In a move that was widely expected, the Washington Redskins have released cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

The veteran Hall was scheduled to earn $8 million next season — a price apparently too high for the franchise struggling to get under the salary cap. The NFL taxed the Redskins $36 million in cap space, equally divided over this season and last season.

Hall, who attended Deep Creek High School in Chesapeake, Va. and played collegiately at Va. Tech, previously stated he would take a pay cut to remain with the team.

Mike Shanahan said the decision to cut DeAngelo Hall was difficult because he previously told players he would keep them if they worked hard and ‘did it right.’

“He’s giving everything I asked him to give, he’s gotten better each year,” Shanahan said Monday, per Grant Paulsen.

In speaking with Mike Jones of The Washington Post, Hall said he hoped to be able to work something out with cash-strapped team, but ultimately fell short.

The team has a 4:30 p.m. press conference scheduled to discuss the upcoming free agency period.
