Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall took a big pay cut to return to Washington for another season.  In an interview with Andrew Siciliano of the NFL Network, he said that he doesn’t mind that he was released and sign to a lesser contract because he’s made enough money in his career. “I’ve been blessed,” Hall said, per “I’ve been in this league a long time, I’ve made a lot of money – I got $8 million to play eight games in Oakland. So for me this time around it wasn’t about the money.” Hall feels like they have something special going on in Washington. “We started something here in Washington with coach [Mike] Shanahan,” Hall said. “That was the biggest thing I wanted to stress. I felt like my contract along with Haynesworth was the reason we were in the situation we were in. So for me it wasn’t about the money. I wanted to come back here, I wanted to finish something I started; I grew up in the Virginia Beach area, I’m a local kid, went to Virginia Tech so I wanted to be a part of this football team. I’ve been a part of it when we weren’t so good so to finally be on the cusp of being great, I want to be a part of that. I was willing to take that pay cut and get back on this football team and help us win.” The other reason Hall returned to the Redskins is because they were likely the only team willing to pay him the $1.25 million he’s scheduled to make in 2013.
