    Veteran defensive back DeAngelo Hall is not retiring from the NFL yet.

    The three-time pro bowler told reporters at Ryan Kerringan's Leukemia and Lymphoma Society that he was done with football, but later told News4 if and when he retires, it will be on his own terms, with his own announcement. 

    After reports of his retirement sufaced, the Washington Redskins thanked him for his great career on Twitter. The team later tweeted, "DeAngelo Hall has not yet officially decided to retire despite reports."

    Hall has played 14 seasons in the NFL, 10 of those with the Washington Redskins, making him the longest-tenured player on the team.

    Hall, 34, was drafted by the Falcons in 2004 and then played for the Raiders before moving on to Washington, where he started in every game between 2010 and 2013.

    He recorded 43 interceptions during his career, including four in one game against the Bears in 2010.

    Hall also notched five touchdowns and recovered 15 fumbles in the NFL.

    Hall has missed 45 games over the last four seasons due to injuries. He is reportedly weighing his option between joining a front office, coaching staff or jumping in to the broadcast booth. 

    Correction (Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 6:45 a.m. ET): An earlier version of this story indicated Hall's plans to retire.
