DeAngelo Hall officially retired from the NFL on Wednesday afternoon. The 34 year old defensive back, who spent the last 10 years of his career with the Washington Redskins, is calling it a career after only playing in a few games over the past couple of seasons.

Hall wasn’t all business, he took a shot at Jay Cutler during his press conference, saying he would be a hall of famer if he played against Cutler more. The shot was a reference to the time Cutler called him just another player.

He’s not lying. Cutler, who threw 160 interceptions during his 12 year career, probably would have found Hall a few more times had they played more games against each other.
That said Hall, before being slowed by injuries, had a pretty solid career in the NFL. He’s walking away with 43 career interceptions.
