During the offseason the Washington Redskins dominated national headlines with their $100 million acquisition of free agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. And while that move garnered all the attention, the 'Skins also moved quickly to lock up another defensive stalwart, inking cornerback DeAngelo Hall to a six-year, $55 million deal.
After joining the team halfway through last season, the playmaking Pro Bowler was just what the doctor ordered – finally giving the team’s secondary someone capable of creating turnovers for the first time since Sean Taylor.
We wanted to catch up with Hall this week to talk about his news of the week, the depth at cornerback and anything else on his mind.
Okay, you’re a week into training camp, how you feeling these days?
“I feel good,” he said. “I feel good. I’m still pushing through a little bit of the conditioning stuff and getting the body used to the movements. Like I said, when I train in the offseason I don’t do too much backpeddling and all that stuff, so this is good for your base to kind of get going. We’re a week down, still feel good.”
We hate to be the ones to bring this up, but you know there are folks out there who are convinced now that you’ve gotten paid, you’re going to be content to sit around a collect a paycheck. What do you have to say to those individuals?
“The critics can kiss my ass,” Hall said.
That’s what we like to hear. Shifting gears, you made a big announcement this week with the launching of your website. What can the fans expect to find on your site?
“A whole bunch of stuff,” he said. “You know, all access to me and what’s going on. Redskins stuff, on and off the field with DHall TV … man, it’s gonna be all access.
Be real with us, is this you, or did you pay some dude to run it for you?
