The Washington Redskins signed defensive back DeAngelo Hall to a one year deal about a month after they released him. However, that almost didn’t happen. According to the Washigton Post, Hall considered taking a year off after the team had cut him in March. “I contemplated not playing this year, to be honest,” Hall said at this week’s minicamp at Redskins Park. “I felt like I could do some things off the field that would have been just as lucrative as coming to play. So I really had to sit back and just examine the situation, see if I did feel like I could do it again. And I felt like I could. I felt like the coaches are going to do a good job of putting me in position to be successful, and that’s all you can ask for.” Here’s Hall on what made him want to re-sign with the Redskins. when I saw kind of who was interested, my first thought was to try to get back here.

Will Aldrick Robinson Have a Breakout Season?

Aldrick Robinson flashed big play ability in limited playing time last season. If it wasn’t for a big drop vs the St Louis Rams in week two and a concussion injury in a freak collision with safety Brandon Meriweather before the Tampa Bay game, we could have been looking at a totally different 2012 season from Robinson.
