On Monday, Hall made it clear: His days of being a player in the National Football League are over.

While at Virginia Tech, Hall was a speedy (4.34-second 40-yard dash) and feisty cornerback who earned All-America honors as a junior in 2003. I'm probably 95 percent sure I'm done playing football.

"Average", Hall said of his career.

Hall signed a one-year contract with the Redskins three days later and intercepted Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in his first game with the team. On defense, Hall was business as usual with a career-high 93 tackles with one interception and one forced fumble, which was returned for a touchdown. Hall set the tone in that game.

However, he was released on November 5 after playing just eight games for the Raiders; though he did intercept three passes, he struggled to adapt to Oakland's style of man-to-man defense. "I had my mom, my aunt, and my two cousins in the stands".

Upon returning from injury last season, Hall shuttled in and out of the starting lineup at safety, lending support to D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson. When Greg Stroman had his run of various returns for touchdowns in recent years, Hall's brilliance 15 years earlier came into full view once again.

Hall finishes with 636 tackles, 10 defensive touchdowns and 43 interceptions.

"The Redskins even put out two tweets earlier in the day thanking Hall for his time with the team and used the hashtag "#ThankYouDHall".

Hall joined the Redskins midway through the 2008 season after he was released by the Oakland Raiders just eight games into a six-year deal worth $23 million guaranteed.

His final appearance came on December 10, 2017, against the Los Angeles Chargers.
