DeAngelo Hall, Longtime Redskins DB, Announces Retirement

posted by MH - 

Longtime Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall is calling it a career after 14 seasons in the NFL, 10 of those with Washington. He made the official announcement at Ryan Kerrigan's golf tournament on Monday.

Hall joined the Redskins halfway through the 2008 season after the Oakland Raiders released him. He started every game from 2010 to 2013 playing the cornerback position. He tied an NFL record for the most interceptions in a game with four picks off the Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler. Hall was a Pro Bowler that year for the third and final time.

Coming off an excellent 2013 season, Hall signed a four-year contract extension with Washington, but tore his Achilles tendon in the third game of the 2014 season. He missed the remainder of the season and only played in 11 games in 2015. In 2016, Hall tore his ACL in Week 3 and missed the rest of the year and most of the 2017 season as well from it.

As for the future, DeAngelo wants to either join a team's front office or become a TV analyst.
