DeAngelo Hall is actually having a pretty under the radar season, one person taking notice is Redskins Hall of Famer Darrell Green who is lobbying for the Redskins to resign Hall at the end of the season.
“They will sign him back,” Green said Sunday prior to the pregame ceremony that honored he and more than 100 other former Redskins players. “The Redskins should sign him back. I don’t work for the Redskins. But the Redskins should take a very close look at him, because everybody else will. He’s playing at that level. It’s not going to be about judging yesterday or the day before or the year before. It’ll be judging today, and I think the guy is now interestingly enough, now in the middle of his career where people were thinking it was the twilight of his career, and that’s not true. I think the kid is just beginning to become what they thought he could be in the beginning.”
“That kid has played a lot of football, but he’s still young. And so, I was impressed with that and I have always felt that he hasn’t ever reached his greatest potential,” said Green, who himself made seven Pro Bowls and won two Super Bowls during his 20-year career. “So, I think a lot of those conversations — from me, it makes it credible, and I say that humbly. But it was credible to him. And he started thinking, ‘You know what?’ And then we started talking about other things. And I tell my wife all the time, I’m really proud of him, because here’s a kid that got his money reduced, he’s been successful here, but there’s always been that whole idea that we know there’s more in you. And I think there’s still more in him, so I’m pretty pleased with what I’m seeing.-BlackSportsOnline.com
This season Hall has 3 picks, 9 passes defended and 2 touchdowns. Not a bad season at all and the Redskins should at least take a look if he doesn’t demand too much.
