Hester was the most electric return man for the Chicago Bears during his time with the team from 2006 until the Bears let him go to free agency in 2013. Hester holds many records as a returner, and was a decent receiver as well. Would it be wise for the Bears to give him another shot in Chicago? Hester...

Is Devin Hester a Hall of Famer?

The answer is “YES”, just maybe not for a long time. Last night Devin Hester didn’t look like a returner who has lost a few steps.
