The Washington Redskins and cornerback DeAngelo Hall are making progress towards a new contract.

Hall, 30, has expressed a willingness to move from cornerback to safety in 2014. Both Hall and the Redskins have publicly made it known that they would like to continue their relationship. Pro Football Talk reports that talks between the two “are intensifying” but cautions that a deal could still take some time.

Per a league source, talks are intensifying between the Redskins and Hall toward a new contract.  While not close to an agreement, progress is being made.

Hall has been with the Redskins since halfway though the 2008 season. He earned $1.25 million on a one-year deal last season but has started every game since 2010.

Last season Hall had four interceptions, three forced fumbles, and a pair of touchdowns.
