FOXSports.com national writer A.J. Perez reports from Ashburn, Va. at Redskins team training facility.
Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall and a reporter had to be physically restrained as a shouting match ensued at the team’s training facility Tuesday.
Hall was angered by a blog post written by Washington Post reporter Mike Jones last Thursday, which centered around one-on-one meetings between members of the defensive backfield and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. FOXSports.com learned that Hall had an issue with a quote attributed to him in the post.
Tuesday’s conversation escalated in the hallway outside the locker room as Hall’s teammates and Redskins team personnel separated the two. The two were kept several feet apart.
Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie told reporters that Hall and Jones met and the issue “had been resolved.”
Jones declined to comment.
“It wasn’t a big deal,” Hall said on his WJFK-FM radio show. “It wasn’t like I was saying, ‘This is the end of the world.’ It wasn’t anything negative in the article.”
Hall said it wasn’t until others intervened in their conversation that things got out of hand.
“People were pulling me back,” Hall said. “People were pulling him back…There wasn’t anything going on.
