DeAngelo Hall Retires from NFL After 14-Year Career

DeAngelo Hall Retires from NFL After 14-Year Career

After a 14-year NFL career, DeAngelo Hall said on Monday that he will no longer play professional football.

Hall spent four seasons with the Falcons before spending half a season with the Oakland Raiders and then finished his career with the Washington Redskins.

Hall intercepted 43 passes in his career, five of which were returned for touchdowns. Hall struggled to stay healthy in his last four seasons with the team, tearing his left ACL twice in 2014 and dealing with a lingering toe injury in 2015. He owns a share of an National Football League record with four INTs in a single game, doing it at Chicago on October 24, 2010.

Hall was traded from Atlanta to Oakland at the expiration of his rookie deal, and soon signed a large contract extension with the Raiders.

Hall redeemed himself with Washington.

The team, however, tweeted in the evening that "DeAngelo Hall has not yet officially made a decision to retire despite reports".

Hall, a star cornerback out of Virginia Tech, was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

"I've been meeting and talking with a little bit of everybody", Hall said in the morning, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

"I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me", he said. Who's to say I can't get in there another way. "It wasn't going to be a role where I felt like I could try to get that coveted 50 [career interceptions]", Hall explained. That's my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I get one as an exec, a coach.
