DeAngelo Hall’s 2012 season got even more expensive this week.

The Redskins cornerback was fined $35,750 for committing a pair of infractions in the Redskins’ 38-31 win over Dallas on Thanksgiving.

Hall was fined $15,750 for unnecessary roughness; striking Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant in the face after a second-half play. He also was fined $20,000 for a horse collar tackle.

He was not penalized on either play during the game.

The league handed down those fines two weeks after Hall was fined $30,000 for verbally abusing a referee.

Hall declined comment Friday.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan offered his thoughts Friday about whether fines are an effective deterrent.

“Guys play hard. Guys play to win,” Shanahan said. “If they do make a mistake, they’re not trying to hurt somebody. Sometimes when it goes helmet to helmet at the last second – a guy goes down, lowers his head  and there’s helmet to helmet – he doesn’t know that when he takes off when he’s got his head down. But you’re still going to get fined. So it’s not the intent, it’s the action.”
