Redskins release John Hall

Postby sox 06 » Thu Mar 08, 2007 10:27 am

ASHBURN, Va. -- Kicker John Hall was released by the Washington Redskins on Wednesday after three consecutive injury-hampered seasons, saving the team about $1.5 million.

The move was expected, given all of Hall's health problems, plus Shaun Suisham's emergence as his replacement last season.

Hall played in 39 games for the Redskins from 2003-06 -- and missed more than two dozen in that span.

The Redskins haven't had the same kicker for two consecutive full seasons since 1994, and Hall was expected to fix that problem when he signed a five-year, $7.1 million contract as a free agent from the New York Jets in 2003.

But he had four leg injuries in 2004 alone, another one in 2005, and he went on injured reserve last season in October with a strained groin and a strained quadriceps.

Hall, 32, has played in 10 NFL seasons with the Jets and Redskins, making 203 of 272 field-goal attempts, 74.6 percent.

Suisham went 8-for-9 on field goals for Washington last season.
