“I feel young. I’m young at heart,” he said. “The body’s kinda, doesn’t feel so young. But mentally, man, I feel good. I feel great.”
Hall also said the he considered hanging up the cleats for good this offseason, but some “unfinished business” drew him back.
“I was close. I was pretty close,” he said of retiring. “Obviously my wife wanted me home with the kids. I kinda wanted to be around them a little bit more. My oldest son is 11 now, so he’s kinda getting going in his athletic career. So I definitely want to be around them, but I just felt like we had some unfinished business, as a team and personally. And I felt like I still could do it. I don’t know what’s gonna happen when I decide to be done. Hopefully mentally I will have felt accomplished. But I just felt like we left so much unfinished business on the table.”
