Devin Devorris Hester is an American football player for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. He is primarily a return specialist, though he is officially listed as a wide receiver and previously played as a cornerback.
Hester was drafted in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He quickly made an impact as a kick returner, and later became one of the team's starting wide receivers. Hester holds the NFL record for most all-time return touchdowns and most all-time punt return touchdowns. From 2007â€“2012, the Bears employed him on offense as well as special teams, but as of 2013 he has been solely a kick and punt returner. He played college football for the University of Miami, where he was the first player in the universityâ€™s recent history to play in all three phases of American football.
