Jason Hatcher (Cowboys/redskins) is retiring from the NFL. A great player and better friend. His leadership will be missed by teammates.

Hatcher, 33, is a former third-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2006. He spent eight years in Dallas before signing a four-year, $27.5 million contract with the Redskins as a free agent back in 2013.
Unfortunately, Washington released Hatcher in a move that freed up $4.2 million in cap space.
As a free agent, Hatcher visited with the Saints, but didn’t a sign a deal with them.
Over the course of his 10-year NFL career, Hatcher recorded 175 tackles, 34.5 sacks, nine forced fumbles, five recoveries, an interception and two touchdowns. He also made one Pro Bowl during the 2013 season.
