Hall still hoping to re-sign with Redskins

While fellow cornerbacks Shawn Springs and Carlos Rogers are under contract for 2009, DeAngelo Hall is wondering if the Redskins will get a deal done with him before free agency starts at midnight Friday.

“I was the highest-paid DB for eight weeks, but I learned it’s not all about the money,” Hall said Tuesday as negotiations between the Redskins and agents Alvin Keels and Joel Segal continued. “When teams are courting you, everybody’s real nice. But Oakland wanted me to do things that would be like you writing your stories backwards. The Redskins have an advantage since we’ve had a chance to feel each other out.  I’m optimistic that we can get something done in time, but there’s not much time [before I become a free agent].”
