According to Yates, this move makes Hall’s base salary of $4 million non-guaranteed for the 2015 season.
Before this change was made, $1 million of his $4 million base salary was set to become guaranteed on February 15. However, the Redskins elected to make an adjustment before any guarantees kicked in.
Yates mentions that this also provides Washington with some security in terms of financial planning, should Hall have issues coming back from the ACL he sustained last October.
Hall , 31, signed a four-year, $17 million contract that included $5.4 million guaranteed with the Redskins back in February of last year. Hall was set to make base salaries of $4.25 million in 2016 and 2017.
There has been some talk as to whether or not Hall will be back in Washington now that they’ve added a new defensive coordinator to go along with a new general manager.
In 2014, Hall recorded 16 tackles and a fumble recovery over the course of three games.
