"After 14 NFL seasons, CB DeAngelo Hall is retiring from football at age of 34".

The Richmond Times-Post reports that Hall, 34, will not play this season and is wrestling whether to launch a career in TV or in a front office for an National Football League team.

Hall spent the past 10 seasons with the Washington Redskins primarily as a cornerback, although he saw action at safety as well.

"I'm not playing. That's for damn sure".

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

Hall, a star cornerback out of Virginia Tech, was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. "But yeah, all the other stuff is still on the table". In those games, he intercepted 43 passes to go along with five touchdowns.

After the Modi government came to power in 2014, Irani's educational qualifications, or the lack of it, made national headlines. He had been the junior minister for I&B early in his tenure, before being given independent charge of youth affairs and sports.

"I had a vision of a gold jacket, but the injuries the last couple years have been very hard on me", he said.

The announcement really shouldn't come as a surprise to Redskins fans as most saw the writing on the wall for Hall.

Hall said his motivating goal in the final years of his career was to become a Hall of Famer, but he feels he finished short of that, having had three seasons cut short by injury over the last four years in Washington. That's kind of my focus.

Over his career, Hall has played in 171 games.

A standout performer at Deep Creek High School, the Chesapeake, Virginia native appeared in four career postseason games, two apiece with Atlanta and Washington.
