WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — DeAngelo Hall has agreed to terms on a deal that will keep him with the Washington Redskins for the next four seasons, multiple media outlets have reported.
Channel 4′s Dianna Russini was the first to report Hall’s agreement with the team.
A person familiar with the contract says it will be worth $4 million to $5 million per year, according to The Associated Press.
Hall became a free agent this offseason after agreeing to a one-year deal last year, having taken a pay cut so the Redskins could fit him under the salary cap.
Among those who have confirmed the report are CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora and ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Hall has played six seasons for the Redskins and will be entering his 11th season in the NFL. He’s also played for the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders. He has 43 career interceptions.
Last season, he had four interceptions — two of which he returned for touchdowns — three forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown. He also registered 47 tackles.
The exact terms of the deal have not immediately been made available.
Soon after he was hired and met with Haz, Gruden reached out to Hall and expressed desire to re-sign him because of his play and leadership—
