Based on an unofficial gauge on Twitter mentions, DeAngelo Hall's new contract in Washington didn't make much sense to those outside of the Redskins fanbase. But if you happen to root for the burgundy and gold and tune in regularly, you know that re-signing Hall—despite him turning 31 in November—was a great move.
In addition to Hall always reminding us that he wants to play in Washington, he fits the Redskins' defensive scheme, and his on-field performance is much better than advertised (or graded, depending on what site you read). He's always the guy responsible for covering the opposition's best wideout; he brings a fiery attitude to the field, and he's a proven playmaker—all of which is needed on this team.
Re-signing Hall was a no-brainer for the Redskins and the best fit they've achieved all offseason. If history is any indication, Hall's good for at least four interceptions and a score in 2014.
