Hall struggled to stay healthy in his last four seasons with the team, tearing his left ACL twice in 2014 and dealing with a lingering toe injury in 2015. Hall mentioned that it was a dream of his to make the Hall of Fame, and that because of the way the back half of his career played out, he knows he still has work to do to get there. Hall had 17 interceptions as a Dirty Bird, returning two for touchdowns.
In September 2007, the then-fourth year Falcon infamously got into an argument on the sideline with then-Falcons head coach Bobby Petrino after a defensive series against the Carolina Panthers in which Hall was responsible for 67 yards in penalties. Hall signed in Washington three days later to a one-year contract.
The 34-year-old was a free agent played just five games last year because of a knee injury, and hasn't played a full season since 2013.
His career comes to a close with Hall having recorded 811 tackles and 43 interceptions, the latter figure the fourth-most in the National Football League since his debut.
Since 2004, Ed Reed, Charles Woodson and Asante Samuel are the only three players in that time span with more interceptions than Hall.
It's been a "Hall" of a run, but it's come to an end.
It doesn't take long when reading DeAngelo Hall's list of accolades, ranging from Deep Creek to Virginia Tech to Atlanta, Oakland and Washington to realize his career was a successful one.
