Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall retires from the NFL after 14 seasons
Following 14 seasons in the NFL and three trips to the Pro Bowl, former Washington Redskins star cornerback DeAngelo Hall is hanging up his cleats and has officially decided to retire from the NFL.
However, according to an article released today by Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Hall is weighing his options regarding his future in the NFL as either a television broadcaster, front-office executive, or possibly an assistant coaching role.
“I’ve been meeting and talking with a little bit of everybody. Organizations to networks. I’m still undecided as of now,” Hall said. “I’m not playing. That’s for damn sure. But yeah, all the other stuff is still on the table.”
The 34-year-old Hall, who recorded 43 interceptions over 14 seasons with the Redskins, Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders as one of the league’s most notorious ballhawks, has been pestered by injuries over the last four years and has been limited to just 22 games during that span.
“I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me,” Hall said. “So that’s kind of out of the question now. But who’s to say I can’t get in there some other way? That’s kind of my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I can get one as an exec, a coach – I’m going to get me a damn gold jacket, believe that.”
Hall is most famously known for a game back in the 2010-11 season with the Redskins when he intercepted Chicago Bears quarterbacks four times in a single game, which tied an NFL record.
The cornerback is also infamously known across social media back in August 2015 when Houston Texans star receiver DeAndre Hopkins put Hall on skates during a joint team practice with a filthy juke move.
Four interception games and skates along with many memorable moments, DeAngelo Hall will go down in the books as a solid professional of the NFL.
