Devin Hester: 'I Wasn't Happy The Last Three, Four Years In Chicago'
Emotions were running super high during the NFL Network post-game show in Atlanta last night. The Falcons had just thrashed the Bucs, and Devin Hester had broken Deion Sanders' all-time record for most return touchdowns, in Deion's building, with Deion on the sidelines. While we've already seen the teary-eyed moment Hester and Sanders shared, the feelings didn't stop flowing there.
One of the big questions of Devin Hester's arguably Hall of Fame career (and yes, with 20 touchdowns off returns alone, he has to be in the Canton conversation) is whether there could have been more to it. Hester spent eight years in Chicago, and after starting off solely as a kick returner, the Bears tried to make Hester into a more traditional wide receiver option as well. For whatever reason, it didn't work out.
In his first season as a Falcon, Hester already looks more comfortable in Matt Ryan's offense than he has in years. And as Hester himself says, that's because he wasn't happy in Chicago. Watch (via @_MarcusD_):
