Wide receiver, American football player
Who is Devin Hester?
Devin Devorris Hester is an American football player for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League. He is primarily a return specialist, though he is officially listed as a wide receiver and was drafted as a cornerback. From 2007-2012, 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 university’s recent history to play in all three phases of American football.
Hester was drafted in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft. 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.
