Former Pro Bowl Defensive Back DeAngelo Hall Joins NFL Network

14-Year Veteran to Appear on Various NFL Network Shows


Former Pro Bowl defensive back DeAngelo Hall has joined NFL Network, it was announced today.


Beginning in July, Hall (@DeAngeloHall23) can be seen as an in-studio analyst on various NFL Network shows such as NFL Total Access and Good Morning Football, as well as on NFL Network's on-location coverage of such events as the Super Bowl.


"DeAngelo is a 14-year NFL veteran who brings a ton of experience to the NFL Media Group," said Galen Gordon, NFL Network Vice President, Talent Management. "We're thrilled to have his analysis and expertise on our platforms."


A first-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 2004 NFL Draft, Hall played 14 seasons in the NFL, amassing 43 interceptions, 132 passes defensed, five interceptions returned for touchdown and 11 forced fumbles during his career. The three-time Pro Bowl defensive back played four seasons in Atlanta before being traded to the Oakland Raiders in 2008. Hall played eight games for the Raiders before his release, after which he signed with the Washington Redskins where he finished his career. Currently, Hall is tied for an NFL record for most interceptions in a single game (four) and holds the record for most career fumble return yards (328) in NFL history.


A native of Chesapeake, Virginia, Hall played three seasons at Virginia Tech where he earned second-team All-American honors in 2003. In 2016, Hall was inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.

Good for him. 


But I hope people realize that he's going to have some stories to tell to further his career, once our season starts going downhill and getting dramatic. The same thing happens with all former players turned analysts, especially when the players and coaches they knew are still in current locker rooms. Ryan Clark is a good recent example of this, the year or two after he retired.

DHall's post-football career timeline:


Positive Redskins PR rounds on the networks ---> Works w/ Redskins scouts during pre-draft ---> Scouting/FO stint goes nowhere ---> Joins CSNWwashington post game show ---> Gets very blunt, to the point & realistic about the Skins on post game show ---> Moves on to national TV with NFLN.


I thought he was good on TV, both talking nice and not so nice about the Skins.  But it was clear as day the Skins threw him a bone and he was out making the rounds, selling the team's message.  After that went nowhere, he started getting real.
