Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall mentioned Wednesday that he took a pay cut “a few days ago,” per John Keim. Hall added that after the season he had no problem agreeing to a restructured deal.
According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Hall agreed to reduce his base salary from $4.25 million to $2.3 million for the 2017 season. Hall can make $250,000 if he were to be a Pro Bowl selection this year.
Redskins HC Jay Gruden said of Hall, per Dianna Russini: “He’s been a mainstay, kept the boat from sinking. He’s been a great leader.”
Hall, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2004. After four years in Atlanta, Hall joined the Redskins for the 2008 season and has spent the past nine years in Washington.
Hall is in the final year of his four-year, $17 million contract that includes $5.4 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $4.25 million for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Hall was limited to appearing in just three games and recording 16 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense for the Redskins.
