DEVIN HESTER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Will Devin Hester win a second ESPY this year?

Devin Hester puzzled, but not concerned by uncertainties in Atlanta Falcons’ offense

Devin Hester will go down in NFL history as one of the best returners. The Atlanta Falcons brought in the 32-year-old veteran not only for special teams, but also as a wide receiver.

No, Atlanta Falcons returner Devin Hester has not lost a step

There are some people who believe that Atlanta Falcons return specialist Devin Hester has lost a step and is no longer one of the most dangerous weapons in the NFL. That simply isn’t true.

Devin Hester looking to add flare to the Atlanta Falcons this season

The Falcons scored big with the offseason acquisition of Devin Hester. Hester, even at 31, can still be an explosive asset to any roster including a youthful squad such as the Falcons.

10 bargain NFL free agents still available

All too often, front offices around the NFL try so hard to scoop up what they think are the missing pieces to their Super Bowl puzzle on the open market that they wind up bending over backwards for overpriced big-name free agents that fail to live up to expectations.
