Reports surfaced on Monday that Washington Redskins defensive end DeAngelo Hall was going to retire, telling reporters that he's done playing football and now deciding between offers to become a TV commentator, front-office executive or assistant coach.
He finished with 25 tackles, two interceptions and eight pass deflections in seven games for Washington, and agreed to a new six-year, $55 million contract in the offseason. Hall had always dreamed of playing close to home - he grew up in the Virginia Beach area and played at Virginia Tech.
Hall went on to play 10 seasons for Washington, intercepting 23 passes in 106 games and transitioning to free safety during the 2015 season.
A three-time Pro Bowler, Hall's last several seasons have been derailed by injuries.

Hall will nearly certainly end up in the Redskins Ring of Fame, as one of the greatest team players of his era. His last one would come all the way back in 2010 with the Washington football team. His brightest moment of his career came on October 24, 2010, when he tied an National Football League record for most interceptions in a game with four against Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears. He also scored five touchdowns on fumble recoveries.
Hall began his career with the Atlanta Falcons after being selected with the eighth overall pick of the 2004 draft.
In an interview Monday at the Ryan Kerrigan Leukemia Golf Classic, Hall reflected on his 14-year career, as well as what's next.
