ASHBURN, Va. -- After tying an NFL record with four interceptions in a game, DeAngelo Hall is getting his jersey picked off -- and shipped to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Washington Redskins cornerback announced Tuesday on Twitter that the No. 23 he wore in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Chicago Bears is on the way to Canton, Ohio.

A spokesman for the Hall of Fame confirmed that it had asked for the jersey.

Hall is the 19th player to intercept four passes in a game and the first to do it since Deltha O'Neal with the Denver Broncos in 2001.

Hall tweeted that he is "definitely humbled and honored" by the Hall of Fame's request.

It's not an honor that's likely to sit well with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who threw all four picks. Hall said he had an idea Cutler would throw the ball his way, because Cutler -- while playing for the Denver Broncos in 2008 -- completed some passes against Hall, who was playing for the Oakland Raiders.

That's why Cutler said after Sunday's game that if he had to do it all over again, he would go after Hall "every time, if we could."

Hall responded on Monday that Cutler doesn't understand football, and he reiterated that on Tuesday.

"[Cutler and the Broncos] beat me on four passes, four comebacks maybe for 34 yards," Hall said on "The Scott Van Pelt Show" on ESPN Radio. "And for him to come out after the game [Sunday] and say, 'I've had success against him. If I had to do it again, I'd keep coming at him,' the kid just don't know football.

"Because obviously if you made that many mistakes, I would change something."

Hall said it was the first time on any level that he had more than two interceptions.

"I never had anybody crazy enough to keep throwing it at me that many times," Hall said. "To come out of that game with four was an amazing feeling."
