It's been a wonderful career defined by longevity for 14-year veteran defensive back, DeAngelo Hall. But after over a decade in the NFL, the three-time Pro Bowler has finally decided to call it quits.
The 34-year-old told ESPN's John Keim that he was done, and NFL Insider Adam Schefter has confirmed the news.

The versatile defensive back has spent the majority of his career with the Washington Redskins but also had stints with the Oakland Raiders and Atlanta Falcons, where he was an eighth-overall selection in 2004.
Hall was a free-agent this season, and his retirement was expected after a knee injury in 2017 limited him to just five games. He's hoping to move on to pursue a job in the broadcast booth as his next chapter.
As others have said, 14-year NFL vet DeAngelo Hall is retiring. Three-time Pro Bowl pick had 43 career INTs. Either TV or front office work on the horizon.— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) May 14, 2018
In 14 seasons, Hall has tallied up an impressive 48 interceptions, 140 passes defended, 11 forced fumbles, 10 touchdowns and 811 tackles total. A captain for most of his time in Washington, he'll certainly be missed as a reliable football player who played in 171 games.
