Seahawks KR Devin Hester said Saturday's Divisional Round loss to the Falcons was likely his final NFL game.
"I told my wife it’s pretty much my last year," said Hester. "The only thing that I left out of this game is walking away without getting a ring. It’s tough." Hester appeared to have plenty left in the tank on Saturday—he racked up 194 return yards on five attempts. But it looks like he's content to call it a career after 11 often electrifying seasons. Hester was never much of a receiver and actually entered the league as a cornerback in 2006. But he will retire as unquestionably the greatest return man in NFL history. His record 20 return touchdowns will be tough for anyone to top. Jan 15 - 8:18 AM

Seahawks signed KR Devin Hester.

Hester, 34, was cut by the Ravens in December after averaging 24.5 yards on kick returns and 7.2 yards on punt returns. With Tyler Lockett (leg) done for the season, Hester figures to take over on both kickoffs and punts.

Free agent KR/WR Devin Hester worked out for the Patriots on Thursday.

Hester was waived by the Ravens earlier this week. The Patriots need a return specialist with Danny Amendola (ankle) out indefinitely. Hester holds the NFL record with 20 return touchdowns, though he hasn't taken one to the house since 2014.

Ravens waived return specialist Devin Hester.

Hester, who doesn't have a catch since 2014, was in the middle of the pack on kick returns, but offering very little on punts. Hester is one of the most electrifying players in league history, but now 34, he's lost his juice.

Ravens signed KR/WR Devin Hester, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year contract.

The move has been rumored for days and finally became official on Sunday. Hester will immediately slot in as the Ravens' primary return specialist. The 33-year-old has never been a big contributor on offense and wasn't even targeted in his five games for Atlanta last season. The four-time Pro Bowler holds the all-time record with 21 combined kickoff and punt return touchdowns.

Free agent KR/WR Devin Hester worked out for the Ravens again Saturday.

He also worked out Friday. This time he also took a physical, suggesting his signing will be announced in the near future. Hester was released by the Falcons just before training camp.

Free agent KR/WR Devin Hester worked out for the Ravens on Friday.

Hester, 34 in November, is finally healthy after recovering from two broken sesamoid bones in his big toe. He was released by the Falcons last month. The Ravens are looking for an upgrade on return man Michael Campanaro.

Free agent KR Devin Hester (toe) said he wants to be fully healthy before he signs with a new team.

Hester's slow recovery from January surgery to repair two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe likely contributed to the Falcons' decision to move on. He says he is still only about 75-to-80 percent healthy. Even with new kickoff rules perhaps limiting his value, Hester said he has already been approached by multiple teams. He should find a new home during camp.

Free agent KR Devin Hester wants to continue his playing career.

Hester is a Hall-of-Fame talent as a return man, but offers nothing as a receiver. That's problematic for a 33 year old who missed most of 2015 with toe issues. If Hester finds a new home, it will be as a return specialist flier.

Falcons released KR/WR Devin Hester.

Hester struggled to recover from January surgery to repair two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe, but it is possible he would have been cut even without the injury. Primarily a kick returner in his two seasons with Atlanta, Hester's value has been damaged by the new kickoff rules. He could latch on somewhere else if he is able to get healthy, but the 33-year-old is nearing the end of the line.

Devin Hester (toe) says he’s about 75 percent healthy.

Hester hasn’t been cleared to run five months after surgery. He’s sitting out OTAs and will miss the entire offseason. Hester’s training camp status is up in the air.
Wed, Jun 1, 2016 07:21:00 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Devin Hester (toe surgery) could be fully recovered for training camp.

"He’s able to do certain things, but he can’t do it all," Quinn said. "I don’t know that I have a timeline, but we’re hopeful it’s prior to camp." Hester still hasn't been cleared to run after January surgery. He's going to miss all of OTAs and remains questionable for camp.
Sat, May 14, 2016 02:47:00 PM

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester (toe) has not been cleared to run.

Hester was limited to five games last season because of two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe. He had surgery to repair the issue in January. Hester should be ready for training camp, but his spot on the roster is anything but secure, especially with the new kickoff rules hurting the value of return men.

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester is rehabbing in Orlando following offseason foot surgery.

The return specialist appeared in just five games last season and wasn't targeted in the passing game. The NFL made another tweak to its kickoff rules this week but head coach Dan Quinn said he'd still give Hester the green light if he's healthy. Hester is the NFL's all-time leader with 20 return touchdowns (14 punt, five kickoff and one missed field goal).
Fri, Mar 25, 2016 03:07:00 PM

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester will be sidelined 3-6 months after undergoing toe surgery last week.

He should be ready for training camp, but the toe gave Hester fits all season long. He missed the first 11 games with turf toe before being activated off short-term I.R. in December. Hester's surgery repaired a broken sesamoid bone. At age 33, Hester is a release candidate at his $3.5 million salary.
