Long-time Washington Redskins defensive back and 14-year NFL veteran DeAngelo Hall is says he believes he has played his last NFL game at the age of 34 but is not officially retired.

"My official retirement announcement won’t come until I’ve 100% committed myself to the next chapter of my life. Which I haven’t yet decided," Hall tweeted out Monday night after news of his supposed retirement spread.

NFL insider Adam Schefter tweeted the news that Hall was retired out just before noon Monday.

Hall spent the first four seasons of his career with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him out of Virginia Tech with the eighth overall pick in the NFL Draft in 2004. Hall earned two of his three career Pro Bowl bids with Atlanta in 2005 and 2006. Hall was traded to the Oakland Raiders in 2008 but was cut by the team in November and signed with Washington, where he spent the final 10 years of his career.

With the Redskins, Hall intercepted 23 of his 43 career interceptions and posted 81 of his 132 career passes defended. Hall made his only Pro Bowl with Washington in 2010, a season where he had six interceptions, 16 pass breakups, 95 combined tackles and two forced fumbles. He also tied the record for interceptions in a single game that year, picking off Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler four times, including one returned for a touchdown.
