Andre Hal announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday after five seasons with the Texans. The 2018 Ed Block Courage Award winner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in May 2018 and made a full recovery to return to the football field for the final eight games of the regular season last year.
After sharing his news, the Texans 26-year-old safety received an outpouring of support from current and former teammates on social media.
Texans players from past and present chimed in on Instagram too, wishing Hal the best in the next chapter of his career from Johnathan Joseph, Benardrick McKinney, Kareem Jackson, Brian Cushing, Tyrann Mathieu and Ka'imi Fairbairn to name just a few.
During his five NFL seasons in Houston, Hal played in 69 career games, including 40 starts, and recorded a team-leading 12 interceptions since 2014. He also owns career tallies of 180 total tackles (124 solo), 31 passes defensed, six tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and two forced fumbles.
