WASHINGTON (AP) - Cornerback DeAngelo Hall has been released by the Washington Redskins, a casualty of the team's NFL-imposed salary cap penalty on the eve of the start of free agency.
Hall was cut Monday by the Redskins, who are over the cap because of an $18 million sanction for the way they structured contracts during the 2010 uncapped season.
Hall had two years remaining on the six-year, $54 million deal he signed at the end of the 2008 season. He was due to make $7.5 million in salary in 2013.
The talkative Hall was a thorough mix of big plays and blown coverages in his 4 1/2 seasons in Washington. The 29-year-old cornerback had four interceptions last season for a defense that ranked 30th in the league against the pass.
