ASHBURN, Va.- The Washington Redskins veteran defensive back DeAngelo Hall is preparing to enter his14th season in the NFL. Hall attended all the Redskins OTA sessions and mandatory mini camp but watched on the sidelines as he works himself back from last seasons torn ACL injury that occured in week 3 against the New York Giants. The injury ended Hall's season. Hall has made the switch from cornerback to safety and is a versatile player in the secondary.

Hall still feels like he can contribute to the team and is a valuable leader in the locker room to a group of new players wanting to learn from the 4 time pro bowler. Hall was also the Redskins captain in 2010, 2011, and 2014.

The 33 year old native of Chesapeake, VA and VA Tech Hokie graduate enters his 10th season as a Redskins after being drafted and spending his first 4 years in the league as an Atlanta Falcon. Hall played 8 games for the Oakland Raiders in 2008 before coming to Washington.

He returned 56 punts for 839 yards and five touchdowns. His 839 yards rank third on the Big East Conference career-record chart while his five returns for touchdowns rank second in conference history. Hall is one of the few players in college football history to score touchdowns on offense, defense, and special teams during their collegiate career.
