It's not very often that you hear Bill Belichick offer a player a big contract, that's just not his style. You also don't hear many players turn down the opportunity to make big money while competing for a championship every season with the New England Patriots. The one exception, however, is former Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who said that the Patriots offered him a major contract, but he turned it down because he was seeking more money. Check out the video below:
"I remember when I almost went to New England," Hall said. "Bill Belichick sat me down and said 'Hey, we promised Randy Moss we wouldn't pay anyone more than him. So, this is the deal we have for you on the table. It's the same deal we gave Randy Moss, it's a three-year deal. You want it?' and I was like 'Nah, you know I want a little bit more than that coach,' man, I was wrong."
Yeah, you were wrong. The deal for Moss was a three-year, $27 million contract he signed back in 2008. Hall didn't want something similar? Not only would he have been making $9 million per season, but he could've helped the team win multiple titles.
Yeah, you probably shouldn't ask Hall about contracts, considering he passed on a (at the time) mega deal with the best team in the league because he was selfish.
