DALLAS, TX - Former Grambling St. star and ex-Dallas Cowboy defensive lineman Jason Hatcher signs a four-year contract, worth over $27.5 million dollars with the Washington Redskins. The deal is the largest payday handed out by the Redskins during the 2014 free agency period.

The 32-year-old Hatcher is coming off of a career-year with the Cowboys,racking up 11 sacks and making his first-ever pro bowl appearance.

Hatcher's signing coincides with the Redskins' front-office hiring of Doug Williams as the Executive of Player Personnel over the off-season. Williams and Hatcher's relationship spans back to 2003 when Williams was the head coach at Grambling St. and Hatcher was his player.
