Redskins' DeAngelo Hall Retires


14-year National Football League veteran DeAngelo Hall has officially announced his retirement today, telling reporters, "I'm not playing".

According to's John Keim, the veteran cornerback said "I'm done" when asked about his playing future.

Hall spent four seasons with the Falcons before spending half a season with the Oakland Raiders and then finished his career with the Washington Redskins.

"I'm not playing", Hall said about his playing future.

In three seasons in Blacksburg, Hall recorded 190 tackles and 8 interceptions while also catching 7 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown on offense. "But yeah, all the other stuff is still on the table". Hall started 95 games for the Redskins. "So that's kind of out of the question now".

Washington Redskins fans will have to get used to not seeing defensive back DeAngelo Hall in a Burgundy and Gold uniform. That's kind of my focus.

Hall retires as the longest-tenured player on the Redskins roster. The 34-year-old was a free agent played just five games last year because of a knee injury, and hasn't played a full season since 2013.

"Since DeAngelo Hall's rookie season in 2004, the only players with more interceptions than his 43 are Ed Reed (52), Charles Woodson (50), and Asante Samuel (49)". Oakland released Hall after he appeared in only eight games, and Washington subsequently signed him.
