Redskins' Hall announces retirement after 14 seasons

  • DeAngelo Hall

It's been a "Hall" of a run, but it's come to an end.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Hall's last several seasons have been derailed by injuries.

Hall spent the past 10 seasons with the Washington Redskins primarily as a cornerback, although he saw action at safety as well. "But yeah, all the other stuff is still on the table", he said, via the Richmond Times-Dispatch. He tore his ACL in Week 3 of the 2016 season and did not return to the field until last November, finishing the season with 11 tackles and two passes defensed while starting two of five games. While it's uncertain if Hall has filed the official retirement paperwork with the National Football League office, he told Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Monday that he will be hanging up his cleats.

The NFL's active leading interceptor prior to his announcement with 43 career INTs, Hall returned five of those for touchdowns. Following a brief stint with Oakland in 2008, he joined the Redskins later that year, where he spent the remainder of his pro career.

On Sunday, the UAE's oil minister also said that any oil shortages due to Iran sanctions could be filled by the country. Our per capita energy consumption is very modest which will increase in the coming years.


"I've been meeting and talking with a little bit of everybody", he said.

"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. Who's to say I can't get in there another way.

Monday, Chesapeake native (Deep Creek High School) and former Virginia Tech standout DeAngelo Hall told reporters his playing days are over. That's my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I get one as an exec, a coach.
