The Falcons’ return unit will be energized come September.
The Atlanta Falcons and WR/RS Devin Hester have agreed to a three-year contract, per ESPN.
Hester is one of the most elusive kick returners in the NFL. He has 13 career punt return touchdowns and five career kick return touchdowns.
In 2013, he had an 80-yard kick return and an 81-yard punt return touchdown, notably.
The 5’11”, 190-pound former Miami Hurricane will make an immediate impact for the Falcons, who had zero return touchdowns in 2013.
Hester will electrify Atlanta’s Special Teams, providing a much-needed spark in an area often disregarded in football.
