Comments Off on Devin Hester Thinks He Has One Foot In The Hall of Fame

Devin Hester may not be much of a receiver, but he thinks highly of himself as a return man, and knows his place in history.

Hester has returned 12 punts, five kickoffs and a missed field goal for touchdowns over the course of his career, and thinks that he’s close to being a Hall of Famer, right now.

“I have one foot in right now,” Hester said, via Mike Mulligan of the Chicago Tribune. “If I take three or four back this year, it should be considered 80 percent chance of making it. But I am not really worried about it right now. I am really focused on this season. After this season, when all the stats add up, hopefully it won’t be a question.”

The 30-year-old Hester is playing for his job and NFL life at this point, and he’s aware of it.

“Right now, I just concentrate on this season and I am pretty sure if (the Bears) decided to cut me another team will pick me up,” Hester said. “My goal is to retire as a Bear. (But) I know this is a business. Whatever happens, I want to create enough esteem that there is no stress at the end of the year.”
