Cornerback DeAngelo Hall and the Washington Redskins have agreed on a one-year deal that will bring Hall back to Washington for the sixth consecutive season, The Washington Post’s Mike Jones reported Monday.

The Redskins released the 29-year-old Hall less than a month ago to get below the 2013 salary cap, in part due to an $18 million penalty for the manner in which the team structured contracts during the uncapped 2010 season.

“It just felt right,” Hall said during an interview with 106.7’s Grant Paulsen, according to Comcast SportsNet Washington. “I feel like I still have a lot to prove. I feel like it was a family, and I wasn’t ready to give my family up. … It’s really a family atmosphere in that locker room, in that building. I couldn’t turn down being around those guys for another year.”

Hall garnered interest from Detroit, Minnesota, New England and Atlanta, but he entered into a crowded secondary market in free agency.

With the Redskins last season, Hall had 95 tackles and four interceptions. He has played in all 16 games in each of the last three seasons.
