DeAngelo Hall reportedly likely done with Redskins

Veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall acknowledged after the season that his $8 million salary might prevent him from returning to the Washington Redskins for the 2013 season.

Now that the Redskins are in a financial holding pattern while appealing their $18 million salary-cap penalty, people close to the situation tell The Washington Post that Hall is "highly likely" to be released.

Currently sitting $3 million over the cap, the Redskins must trim money by the start of the 2013 league year on Tuesday. Although Hall's agents have approached the team about restructuring his contract, there have been no discussions as of Friday afternoon, according to The Post.

With no resolution to the Redskins' salary-cap appeal forthcoming, Hall's camp expects to be set free just before the start of free agency. There might still be time for one last-ditch "take-or-leave" offer from the Redskins, but Hall isn't going to look favorably on a pay cut.

Hall is coming off a career-high 95 tackles last season while pitching in four interceptions and 14 passes defensed. He's set to join a crowded free-agent market and will turn 30 during the season. His release will leave the Redskins with gaping holes at both cornerback and safety.
