The Redskins signed cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Friday. Hall was released by Oakland earlier this week.
“DeAngelo wanted a club with a strong defense, a strong coaching staff and a great tradition,” said Hall\’s agent, Joel Segal. “He grew up in Virginia a Redskins fan and he feels he\’s coming home.
In other words , the Steelers did not want or need him. The Steelers had been rumored to have interest, but in the end it was likely just a passing interest. The Steelers are much better off passing on a cancer type player like Hall.
