Redskins' Jason Hatcher: Considering retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hatcher (neck) is considering retirement now that the Redskins' season has ended, reports.

Hatcher's tenth NFL season came to a close Sunday when the Redskins were eliminated from the playoffs by the Packers, leaving the 33-year-old to deliberate his future. Along with inflammation in his knee, Hatcher suffered a stringer this season, when he tallied 20 tackles and two sacks in 15 games played. With the Redskins thought to be targeting more youth along their defensive line next season, Hatcher may have to restructure his contract if he decides to come back, but he's made no such determination at this point.
