Cornerback DeAngelo Hall announces retirement from NFL

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall announces retirement from NFL

Washington Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall announced his retirement from football today at the age of 34, after 14 seasons in the NFL.

"I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me", he said. 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. "So that's kind of out of the question now".

In 36 career games at Virginia Tech, Hall returned five punts for touchdowns while registering eight interceptions with one TD. That's kind of my focus. Following a brief stint with Oakland in 2008, he joined the Redskins later that year, where he spent the remainder of his pro career. That's for damn sure.

Hall, 34, did leave a lasting impression of Redskins Nation with a game-clinching play against the Seattle Seahawks past year from Century Link Field.

The device is powered by a 3,500mAh battery under the hood and also comes with IP 68 certification for water and dust resistivity. Despite good four-five months left before its launch, news and rumors for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 are rampant these days.

The cornerback played in Atlanta for four seasons. He played for the Redskins for the past nine seasons and will always be a fan favorite.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he'll remember Hall as a positive influence on the locker room.

Originally the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons, Hall was selected to the Pro Bowl three times during his career and intercepted 43 passes, which made him the active NFL leader until Monday.
