Devin Hester was a big play specialist with the football

On Tuesday, Devin Hester announced his retirement from the NFL, leaving the game as the best return man in history and one of the more all-around exciting players in NFL history.

Steve Smith, Sr.: Put Devin Hester in the Hall before me

And, he never was able to overcome the great challenge facing ...
