The best returner of all time?

According to the stats, nobody in history has matched Devin Hester's return production, either on a career or year-by-year basis.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Devin Hester told me "yes sir" when asked if he wants to continue his NFL career. He politely declined to discuss his release from the Falcons.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Bears, Bucs coach Lovie Smith on whether Devin Hester is a Hall of Famer: "Yes. Absolutely. When you are the best to ever play that position in the NFL, you should end up in the Hall of Fame. He changed the way the game was played." Hester, 33, was released by the Falcons Tuesday, and his immediate plans remain unclear.
