'Skins sign DeAngelo Hall

In case you missed it yesterday, the Redskins have signed cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the remainder of the season. Hall was let go by the Raiders after eight games. Oakland signed him to a $70 million deal after trading for him in the offseason. Hall told Jay Glazer of FoxSports.com that it's a one-year deal, but he could be in Washington for longer: "It's a one-year deal for now, but we'll work something out long-term," Hall said. "That's why I chose them. I don't want to hit the market in the offseason and have to move my family again this year. "I really like everybody at the Redskins," Hall added. "Coach Zorn is really cool." Sounds promising. Hall was drafted eighth overall in 2004 by the Falcons and is already on his third NFL team at the age of 24. According to The Washington Post, the Redskins have made no guarantees in terms of playing time to Hall, and they want to see how he fits in before considering a long-term deal. Hall would become an unrestricted free agent after this season if no extension is made before then.
