Redskins re-work DeAngelo Hall's contract

Washington recently tweaked the contract of veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall, as he now has a non-guaranteed base salary for the 2015 season, according to a source familiar with the deal.

Under the previous terms of the deal, $1 million of Hall's $4 million base salary was set to become guaranteed on Feb. 15, but the restructure was agreed to in the days leading up to that deal and his entire base salary is now non-guaranteed.

The veteran signed a four-year deal last offseason, though he was limited to just three games after tearing his Achilles and landing on injured reserve.

The restructure provides the team a bit of security from a financial planning standpoint if Hall's injury impacts his return or he is unable to return to the level that he was playing at before the injury.

The defensive backfield figures to be an area of focus for Washington this offseason, as the team allowed an NFL-high 35 passing touchdowns in 2014 and picked off just seven passes, tied for the second-lowest total in the league.
