Texans S Andre Hal Retiring From NFL

Texans S Andre Hal announced via his Twitter account on Tuesday that he’s retiring from the NFL. 

Hal was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2017. The good news, however, is that his cancer is now in remission, which opened the door for him to return to the NFL last season.

You can expect the Texans to place Hal on the reserve/retired list, which ensures that they hold his rights in the event he decides to return to the NFL at some point. 

Hal, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Texans back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.28 million contract when he agreed to a three-year deal worth $15 million and includes $7 million guaranteed in 2017.

Hal was set to make base salaries of $3.25 million over the next two years of the agreement.

The Texans placed Hal on the Non-Football Illness list in July of last year before activating him in October. 

In 2018, Hal appeared in all eight games for the Texans and recorded 12 tackles, three interceptions, and five pass defenses.
