Washington Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall announces retirement


The longtime Washington Redskins corner told reporters Monday morning he was retiring from the NFL.

He spend his last nine years with the Washington Redskins, proving to be an experienced asset to the team.

He finished with 25 tackles, two interceptions and eight pass deflections in seven games for Washington, and agreed to a new six-year, $55 million contract in the offseason. 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 recorded 43 interceptions during his career, including four in one game against the Chicago Bears in 2010.

While at Virginia Tech, Hall was a speedy (4.34-second 40-yard dash) and feisty cornerback who earned All-America honors as a junior in 2003. 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. He made the third of his three Pro Bowls that season. Hall mentioned that it was a dream of his to make the Hall of Fame, and that because of the way the back half of his career played out, he knows he still has work to do to get there.

The Atlanta Falcons originally selected Hall with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 National Football League draft.

But there's a little more to it than that. "I think my wife said she might cry". According to several reports, including via the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Hall confirmed his retirement at the Ryan Kerrigan Leukemia Golf Classic. I'm going to get me a damn gold jacket.
