Redskins cap issues could endanger DeAngelo Hall

With cap problems forcing them into some difficult decisions, it appears the Redskins may be about to tell DeAngelo Hall to “back up off them, bro.”

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, sources think it’s “highly likely” the Redskins part ways with the veteran cornerback.

The Redskins are over the salary cap, and as of Friday afternoon, hadn’t discussed any degree of restructuring. Hall is scheduled to make $8 million next year, making his deal a good place to start looking for room if they were so inclined.

That has his side nervous, and rightfully so. With players such as Chris Gamble hitting the market because their cap numbers had grown cumbersome, the market is going soft, which makes any veteran corner making money a bit vulnerable.
