On Tuesday, free agent fullback Korey Hall signed with the Cardinals. After a couple of practices in Arizona, Hall decided he doesn’t want to be a professional football player anymore.

The 29-year-old Hall, who was a star linebacker at Boise State before moving to fullback in the NFL, told the Idaho Statesman that the wear and tear on his body is more than he can handle anymore.

“I reached a point in my career where my body wasn’t holding up and I couldn’t play the game the way I wanted to,” Hall said. “It was a good run full of great experiences and I have no regrets.”

A sixth-round draft pick of the Packers in 2007, Hall played four seasons in Green Bay and earned a Super Bowl ring after the 2010 season. He played last year with the Saints.
