DeAngelo Hall Retires after 14 NFL Seasons

3 memorable moments from De Angelo Hall's Redskins career

Hall sat out most of last season after suffering a torn ACL in 2016 and became a free agent this spring following 10 seasons with the Redskins.

The former Virginia Tech standout wasted little time in establishing himself in Atlanta, becoming the youngest National Football League player to ever return an interception for a touchdown at 21 years, 44 days old.

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

Arsene Wenger fascinated by India, expresses wish to visit
Wenger was in unusually reflective mood as he prepared for the final match of his Arsenal tenure at Huddersfield Town tomorrow. Why?" "We live in a society where people want quick change and that has changed in recent years".

While at Virginia Tech, Hall was a speedy (4.34-second 40-yard dash) and feisty cornerback who earned All-America honors as a junior in 2003.

Even though Hall was no longer the same dynamic playmaker he was in his prime, his versatility made him a valuable contributor for the Redskins in the secondary. The Falcons fined Hall $100,000 for the outburst but would cut the penalty down to $50,000 if Hall behaved himself for the foreseeable future. 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. "I'm probably 95 percent sure I'm done playing football but I wanted to do it the right way", Hall said Monday night. The injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me, so that's out of the question. "'Are you gonna cry?' I was like, 'Hell, no I'm not going to cry.' This has been a fun journey, fun road for me if it's over, but I've enjoyed every minute of it". That's my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I get one as an exec, a coach.
