DeAngelo Hall Announces Retirement After 14 NFL Seasons

DeAngelo Hall Announces Retirement After 14 NFL Seasons

Washingto Redskins defensiveback DeAngelo Hall announced his retirement from the National Football League on Monday, ending a 14-year career, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Hall eventually signed with Washington in the 2009 offseason and went on to play in 106 games for the Redskins, recording 393 tackles and 23 interceptions for the team. Due to his coverage ability and experience as a cornerback, Hall also played some slot corner behind the likes of Josh Norman, Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller.

Hall was drafted with the eighth overall pick by the Falcons in 2004.

He was a three time Pro Bowler as a defensive back. The Falcons fined Hall $100,000 for the outburst but would cut the penalty down to $50,000 if Hall behaved himself for the foreseeable future.

Upon returning from injury last season, Hall shuttled in and out of the starting lineup at safety, lending support to D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson.


In January, Hall said he wasn't sad about the possibility of retiring.

"I've been meeting and talking with a little bit of everybody", Hall said in the morning, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Before that, he was a Virginia native and spent three years at Virginia Tech.

"I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me", he said earlier Monday. But who's to say I can't get in there some other way?

Hall intercepted 43 passes in his career, five of which were returned for touchdowns. That's my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I get one as an exec, a coach.
