If the Washington Redskins are planning to shake up their front office, at least one former player would be interested in joining the organization in a new role. 

After Sunday’s loss to the Packers, 106.7 The Fan’s Chris Russell reported “the scene around the team after the game was not a pretty one” and alluded to the fact team president Bruce Allen’s tenure with the team could end in the coming weeks. If that’s the case, former cornerback DeAngelo Hall is interested in a front office role, NBC Sports Washington’s JP Finlay reported

“I’ve always wanted to be a part of this front office and help make the Redskins a dominant team again,” Hall said. 

The news of Hall’s interest comes as the Redskins were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, marking the eighth season in Allen’s 10 years with the team the Redskins won’t play in the postseason. 

However, Hall said he would collaborate with Allen if he remains in his current role and isn’t expecting to become the team’s general manager, according to the report. 

Hall could emerge as a valuable front office addition after spending 10 seasons with Dan Snyder’s team, notably making the Pro Bowl in 2010 and recording 23 interceptions during his time with the franchise. 

He ended his playing career in 2017 and has been linked to coaching opportunities with the Redskins and University of Maryland in the past. 

Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller and Quinton Dunbar have all praised Hall for his impact on their careers, and Finlay anticipates Hall might be able to repair the franchise’s relationship with offensive tackle Trent Williams. 

If changes are coming, Hall is prepared to step in.
