DeAngelo Hall says he hasn’t retired, but has played last football game

DeAngelo Hall said he isn’t retiring, but he’s probably played in the final football game of his career.

The former Atlanta Falcon addressed reports on Twitter Monday evening that he chose to retire after 14 seasons in the NFL.

“To everyone who sent their love and wishes thank you but I haven’t retired,” Hall wrote. “However I do think I’ve played my last football game. But my official retirement announcement won’t come until I’ve 100 percent committed myself to the next chapter of my life. Which I haven’t yet decided.” 

It was reported Hall decided to retire by ESPN’s John Keim among others Monday and that the three-time Pro Bowler was deciding to move into the front office role or serve as a broadcaster.

Hall was selected by the Falcons No. 8 overall in the 2004 NFL draft and had 17 interceptions in four seasons in Atlanta. Hall had a short stint with the Raiders and played the last nine seasons with the Redskins.

Hall finished his career with 43 interceptions, 11 deflected passes, 11 forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 10 total touchdowns.

Since his rookie season, only Ed Reed (52), Charles Woodson (50) and Asante Samuel (49) recorded more interceptions than Hall.
