WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- WUSA 9 Sports' Dave Owens reports that cornerback DeAngelo Hall has been released from the Washington Redskins. The Associated Press reports that Hall had two years remaining on the six-year, $54 million deal he signed at the end of the 2008 season. Twenty-nine-year-old DeAngelo Hall was due to make $7.5 million in salary in 2013, reports AP.
Tuesday, free agency is set to begin. The Redskins have to get under the NFL's salary cap by Tuesday, after being docked $18 million for a penalty concerning the way the team structured contracts during the 2010 season.
Saturday, fullback Darrel Young and tight end Logan Paulsen agreed to three-year contracts to remain the Redskins.
Sunday, Nick Sundberg agreed to a four-year deal to remain with the team, avoiding free agency.
