(WAVY) — After a 14-year NFL career, DeAngelo Hall said on Monday that he will no longer play professional football.

Hall, who went to Deep Creek High School in Chesapeake and then Virginia Tech, played his last ten seasons with the Redskins.

A three-time Pro Bowler, Hall’s last several seasons have been derailed by injuries.

Between 2014 and 2016, injuries forced Hall to miss 31 games.

Hall began his career with the Atlanta Falcons after being selected with the eighth overall pick of the 2004 draft.

He signed as a free agent with the Oakland Raiders in 2008 but was released during the season.

Hall then signed on with the Redskins and started every game between 2010 and 2013.

Hall intercepted 43 passes in his career, five of which were returned for touchdowns. He also scored five touchdowns on fumble recoveries.

The 34-year-old Hall has expressed interest in doing television work.
