    Even though DeAngelo Hall wanted to take the weekend to consider 15 or more scenarios for a new team, the cornerback decided Friday to accept a one-year deal from the Washington Redskins, according to his agent, Joel Segal.

    According to a source, Hall agreed to a one-year deal that is worth $492,000 for the remainder of the season, the prorated portion of his $1 million base salary that he would have received from the Oakland Raiders.

    "He's excited to be coming home, he's a Virginia Tech guy," Segal told The Associated Press.

    The Raiders released Hall on Wednesday, eight games into a seven-year, $72 million contract.

    He walked away with $8 million this year and a chance to sign with a new team.

    The New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers were among the teams aggressively recruiting Hall.

    A source close to the Redskins said Hall spoke with Redskins coach Jim Zorn and some of Zorn's assistants before accepting a contract, and that team owner Daniel Snyder met with defensive captains London Fletcher and Cornelius Griffin to gauge their opinion of the move.

    The Redskins are on a bye, so Hall won't make his first appearance in a Redskins uniform until Nov. 16, when Washington plays the Dallas Cowboys.
