Last season the Redskins took a shot at cornerback DeAngelo Hall, and now, he may be cash in with a team like the Patriots. The Boston Globe reports that the Patriots may be looking to add Hall to their roster if the Redskins are unable to secure him before the free agency period begins tomorrow.
The Patriots do need some playmakers on their defense, and the team ranked 26th out of 32 teams in third down conversion percentage against, and 31st in red zone defense. In addition, the Patriots did express interest in Hall when he was released mid-season by the Oakland Raiders in 2008.
Hall is a solid shutdown corner, and would take over as the team’s No. 1 corner role on the depth chart. Hall would definitely help to contain the likes of Santonio Holmes and Reggie Wayne during an extended playoff run.
