DeAngelo Hall '95 percent sure' he's done with football

Washingto Redskins defensiveback DeAngelo Hall announced his retirement from the National Football League on Monday, ending a 14-year career, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Not great; on pace to be really good until four years ago". The injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me, so that's out of the question. But who's to say I can't get in there some other way? "It wasn't going to be a role where I felt like I could try to get that coveted 50 [career interceptions]", Hall explained.

Hall?missed 31 of 48 games because of injuries between 2014 and 2016.

Hall only played in five games past year, yet still managed to sneak in a game-winning play during an upset of Seattle. He was with the Raiders for one season before joining the Washington Redskins. He solidified the corner position for Washington, starting every game between 2010 and 2013.

The cornerback is also infamously known across social media back in August 2015 when Houston Texans star receiver DeAndre Hopkins put Hall on skates during a joint team practice with a filthy juke move.

He quickly became one of the NFL's best cornerbacks and he made the Pro Bowl twice in four seasons with Atlanta.

After being released by Oakland, he signed with Washington in part because it was close to where he grew up in the Virginia Beach area.

The 34-year-old will finish his career with 636 tackles, 43 interceptions, and 140 passes defenced. 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.
