Devin Hester, one of the NFL’s all-time great return specialists, announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday morning.

Hester left a detailed message on his Twitter page, announcing his retirement while reflecting on his career.


The Chicago Bears drafted Hester in the second round of the 2006 draft out of the University of Miami.

Hester certainly has a strong case for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a returner.
