DeAngelo is done: Chesapeake's DeAngelo Hall announces retirement after 14 National Football League seasons

DeAngelo is done: Chesapeake's DeAngelo Hall announces retirement after 14 National Football League seasons”

His 14 seasons would produce three Pro Bowl appearances, and that's about it.

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

Hall came to Washington midway through the 2008 season and in 10 seasons played in 106 games, intercepting 23 passes.

Falling a standout career for the Hokies, Hall was taken No. 8 overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 2004 NFL Draft. He struggled badly to adapt to Oakland's defense, however, and they released him after just eight games.

Hall signed with the Redskins for the remainder of the season, finishing out the year with 25 tackles and two interceptions in four starts, before heading into free agency.

The 34-year-old ball-hawk compiled 811 career tackles, 132 passes defended, and 43 interceptions - tied for 63rd in National Football League history.

Hall said his motivating goal in the final years of his career was to become a Hall of Famer, but he feels he finished short of that, having had three seasons cut short by injury over the last four years in Washington. 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". I'm not playing. That's for damn sure.
