DeAngelo Hall was expected to retire after last season, but hadn't officially announced anything. Hall has been making numerous appearances on TV, and is considering a future in broadcasting. He is also interested in joining a front office to continue working in the NFL.
DeAngelo Hall just finished his 14th season in the NFL, and his 10th as a Redskin. Washington got Hall after he was released by the Raiders in 2008, bringing the Virginia native and Virginia Tech alum home. Hall never left and became a fixture in the Redskins secondary until injuries severely limited him the last few years. He has been more mentor/coach to young players recently.
Hall finishes his NFL career with 811 tackles, 2 sacks, 132 passes defended, 43 INTs, 5 TDs, and 11 forced fumbles. Hall started 95 regular season games for the Redskins.
A candid chat with DeAngelo Hall, who says he's done playing and regrets that he came up just short of the Hall of Fame: https://t.co/aTCUMYiqnt— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) May 14, 2018
“I’ve been meeting and talking with a little bit of everybody,” he said. “Organizations to networks. I’m still undecided as of now.
“I’m not playing. That’s for damn sure. But yeah, all the other stuff is still on the table.”
”I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me,” he said. “So that’s kind of out of the question now. But who’s to say I can’t get in there some other way? That’s kind of my focus. I still want a gold jacket, whether I can get one as an exec, a coach - I’m going to get me a damn gold jacket, believe that.”
DeAngelo Hall also told @michaelpRTD and myself that the Rams has contacted him about playing. Was the only team. He said they wanted him to provide leadership. He’s deciding between TV and going into a front office or coaching— John Keim (@john_keim) May 14, 2018
Since DeAngelo Hall’s rookie season in 2004, the only players with more interceptions than his 43 are Ed Reed (52), Charles Woodson (50), and Asante Samuel (49), per @EpKap. pic.twitter.com/YuB88KPonW— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 14, 2018

To everyone who sent their love and wishes thank you but I haven’t retired. However I do think I’ve played my last football game. But my official retirement announcement won’t come until I’ve 100% committed myself to the next chapter of my life. Which I haven’t yet decided. #HTTR— OG aka CAPTAIN 23 (@DeAngeloHall23) May 15, 2018
