Hester, 34, holds the all-time NFL record with 20 returns for scores, most all-time punt returns (14) and is tied for the most returns for a touchdown in a season (six). A second-round pick of the Bears in 2006, Hester spent his first eight seasons in Chicago.

He scored on returns 12 times his first two seasons, but has just one touchdown return since leaving the Bears following the 2013 season. 

Hester's 24.5-yard kick return average this season was his lowest since 2011 and his 7.2-yard average on punt returns was his lowest since 2008 in years he had at least 18 returns. Hester hasn't returned a kickoff or punt for a score since taking a punt back for the Falcons in 2014.
