DeAngelo Hall is now listed as a starting safety on the Redskins’ unofficial depth chart after spending his first 11-plus seasons in the NFL as a cornerback.
Hall, who turned 32 on Nov. 19, has lined up as a safety in each of the past two games. The team’s official roster now lists him as a defensive back, rather than a corner.

That was the biggest change to a depth chart that hasn’t seen much movement in recent weeks. But it wasn’t the only one. Here are some others of note:
- Will Compton, who has started the last three games ‘Mike’ inside linebacker, is now listed as the full time starter. Keenan Robinson, whose play had slipped in part because of the shoulder injury that’s kept him off the field, is now listed as the backup.
- The ever-versatile Kyshoen Jarrett, who has played nickel and safety, is also listed as a DB now. The rookie was drafted as a safety and had been listed as one until now.
- The depth chart now lists the starting cornerbacks as Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmon. They replace Hall and Chris Culliver, respectively. Culliver, of course, is on injured reserve with the knee injury he suffered on Thanksgiving.
- The backup corners are Quinton Dunbar, Deshazor Everett and Dashaun Phillips, who was called up from the practice squad last week.
There were no changes on offense.
