OPEN THREAD: What is DeAngelo Hall's influence?

DeAngelo Hall ignites passion from the Redskins fan base, whether the reaction is good or bad. Hall makes a lot of big plays, but the flip side of a playmaker is the propensity to give up a few.

With Hall a free agent, his future with the Redskins remains in doubt. Re-signing linebacker Brian Orakpo looks to be the team's highest priority, and where Hall ranks after that is unknown. But Hall - who had a strong 2013 season with four interceptions, two returned for touchdowns - seems undeterred by his uncertain future.

It appears Hall does not need a contract to encourage Redskins players RG3 and Pierre Garçon. So despite his boisterous-at-times personality, what is Hall's influnce in the locker room? Is he somebody Bruce Allen should make a priority to bring back on the squad? D-Hall was the Skins best cornerback in 2013, should that be all that matters in contract talks? Let us know what you think in the comments.
