Some details of DeAngelo Hall’s contract emerge

Feb 20, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT


We have some details on DeAngelo Hall’s new contract and although we can’t figure out all of the important aspects of it we can see that it’s a reasonable deal for both sides.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Hall’s deal is for four years and $17 million dollars. He got a $3.25 million signing bonus and an additional $2 million in guaranteed money. Hall will get $8.5 million in the first two years of the deal.

A few notes:

—The $8.5 million in the first two years means that the identical amount is paid in the second two. So the deal isn’t particularly front loaded or back loaded.

—The annual salary will average $3.44 million. In terms of base salary Hall would be the 23rd-highest paid cornerback among those who are signed for 2014.

—Depending on how the other $2 million in guaranteed money is structured, Hall’s cap hit for 2014 should be anywhere from $2.81 million to $4.25 million.

    Where’s the bashing of the deal now? Thought it was a good deal before and an even better one now. Can’t wait to hear from the winners now…….

    Nothing wrong with this deal. If he plays like he did in 2013 he is worth the $4 Million Cap hit in 2014. I think everyone will agree that $4 million a year for your top CB is not bad at all. Even if he sides to Slot CB, Nickel back, or even FS later this year or next, the $8.5 million of “For Sure money” is not out of line as most feel he has 2 years left in the tank with no problem. Beside the normal risk of injury this deal fits well with both rebuilding and finding Vet’s as stop gaps until new starters are drafted and groomed. MY VOTE IS ” NICE JOB”!

    When the deal was first reported as a 5 million a year deal. I said then it was a bit high. I actually said I thought 3-3.5 million was where I thought the deal should be, that is exactly where this deal sits. So I don’t know who the whiners are? In case you had me there, I think the final numbers resemble a deal I thought was a good one. I knew Hall wouldn’t take 2 million a year since he gave money back. I think with the true numbers they could sign another FA a bit closer to the top guys. It does give them the ability to sign a couple or what I think is a better idea is to grab 2 S from FA. We could set our secondary for a few years. That will give us Draft flexibility next year. I am much happier with these numbers for sure. @ Troy and believe it is spelled Whiners not that I’m the best speller.

    D. Hall is a beast. He deserves this contract. Get him a good safety behind him and he is top 5 corner Archives
