10:24 AM ET 03.09 | As the start of free agency draws closer and the Redskins remain over the salary cap, two people close to the situation believe that it's "highly likely" that the team will release veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall. As of Friday afternoon, the Redskins had yet to engage in talks to restructure the contract of the 10-year veteran, and team officials hadn't offered any assurances that Hall remained in their plans, sources said. Hall is scheduled to make $8 million next season, but Washington is roughly $3 million over the salary cap because of the $36 million penalty over two years levied by the NFL against the team because of the way the Redskins structured contracts during the uncapped 2010 season.

I can't imagine a single Redskins fan that wouldn't be happy with this move.

I can't stand the Redskins but the salary cap penalty was just wrong. Goodell is an ****.

Now if my Year Veteran Plan were in effect, Washington would have a much better option!
Veteran Exemption Cap!

Under the Guido plan, if a player has been with the same team or in the League, for 10 Years, That Team would have two spots on the roster for Veteran Exemptions, meaning that in the case of a guy like James Harrison of the Steelers, 50% of his annual contract would go against the cap, this would give a team like the Steelers 2 spots designated for veteran players that The Steelers would want to keep on the roster, it will also allow The Steelers the ability to reward it's star performers. The catch is the veteran would have to be on the team in year nine so a guy like Peyton would have been full tilt with Denver but Harrison and let's say Palamalu would be at 50% of the Cap!! The Team can make up the money on team Jersey sales alone!!! Maybe produce a special patch for the 10 Year Vet, etc. That's why I'm The Gweeed!!!

I agree... But what's worse... They spent all that money in the uncapped year - and only improved to 6 - 10. 5 Wins a year later...

What happens to a team if they are over the cap ?

Hall can go stick his career in the sand. Wait, he already did that!

They have to cut players to get under (or at) the cap.
Also, prior to that they can restructure contracts in order to get to the cap limit.

Very strange day - I find myself agreeing with Redskins fans!
I just hope the Cowboys don't sign him. He's a liability and not a good player.

Correct. The Redskins were essentially punished for violating a rule which did not exist during the time of their "violation".
Goodell overstepped his authority by fining them.

Hey, every NFL Team would love to have Deangelo Hall on the other Team

March 10, 2013  07:44 AM ET

D-Hall is burnt toast on the field and now he appears to be burnt toast off. Some team certainly will pay good money to watch D'Angelo bite on the first move and get burnt deep ... no doubt one of the League's perpetual losers.

No doubt a Cowboy's fan whose team ALSO got burned by the "cap". That aside, the NFL supposedly had an uncapped year but engaged in unlawful collusion to restrain salaries. It took a good attorney like Goodell to obtain a collective bargaining agreement that let the owners off the hook for their blatantly illegal activity ... and allows Goodell to punish the only two owners who did NOT commit collusion. Bizarro World in which the innocent are punished and the guilty go free.

Even the cowboys are not that dumb, aside from the fact they are just fine at corner.

I don't watch the Skins a lot, but every time I have seen Hall play he has looked pretty good. He has to be better than a lot of other options (maybe not for the asking price, but still).

Fines of 36 mil for the way the Skins spent money in an uncapped year. The NFL couldnt get their crap together to set the rules straight, but the Skins get penalized for overspending in an uncapped year? Nonsensical!

glad to see 'em go. gave up the second most yards by corner last year. he lacks the focus to cover top guys, and though guys like commentator simms put it out their that hes a good tackler, making it a popular believe, hes an absolute **** in that department as well.

He is likely to be more than just a cap casualty since he stinks as a CB.
