Washington defensive back DeAngelo Hall has decided to call it a career.

According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Hall said “I’m done” in reference to his playing future.

A respected veteran who has played a number of roles, he is currently weighing some broadcast and potential front office work.

The 34-year-old was a free agent this spring, and his retirement was expected after 14 seasons. He played just five games last year because of a knee injury, and  hasn’t played all 16 games since 2013.

Once a top cornerback, he transitioned to safety and was still a contributor for them.

  1. D-Hall came into the league as a loud mouth diva. But he really turned into a very solid player AND citizen.

    Hall does a tremendous amount of youth charity work in the Tidewater / Virginia Beach area for many years as well as mentoring many VA Tech players.

    All the best in the future for DeAngelo.

    HTTR !

  2. Hope he finds a place in the Redskins front office. He’s a guy that had some real issues as a young man and turned his life around. Pretty darn good career, and I’m sure he still has a lot to add to the team. Very inspirational story.

  3. I hated this clown forever, ever since Uncle Al was dumb enough to give him $8 million for 8 games BUT I will say he is very good on NFL Total Access, very informed and nothing like I thought he’d be

  4. Hall was a great zone cover guy. We didn’t use him right in OAK so we got crap results, but he was a fine player. Look forward to seeing him in a broadcast booth somewhere.

  5. Deandre Hopkins did him in lol enjoy retirement even though u didnt do much but talk junk too opposing WRs for years
    Jay cutler Made him relevant all the GIFT INTS he threw you lol

  6. I liked D Hall, but he is one of those guys that aged really quickly. I was not shocked to read he was retiring, but shocked at his age. I thought he was like 38 or 39.

    For who? He hasn’t been a contributor to the REDSKINS for years.

  8. LMAO … I can’t wait to see how hard the Redskins are hated on once we’re actually relevant again. Trash talking a team that hasn’t won a Super Bowl since 92 says more about you than it does about the Redskins.

    43 career interceptions, including 5 taken to the house. Matched the NFL record with 4 interceptions in one game … remember it like it was yesterday. The ‘only’ NFL player to return 5 interceptions & 5 fumbles for touchdowns.

    Hall was never a distraction for my beloved Burgundy & Gold, a formidable leader on bad Redskins teams.

    The softest defensive hands since Prime Time … but don’t take my word for it:

    Hail!
