We just watched the Hall of Fame celebration take place for the National Football League last weekend and it was very cool to see. Guys like Peyton Manning, Calvin Johnson, and Charles Woodson headlined the class this year but there is something for Chicago Bears fans to look forward to next year. Devin Hester is going to be on the ballot for the first time and it has become a popular debate around the league.
It really shouldn’t be much of a debate, however. Hester is the single greatest kick/punt returner in the history of the sport. That might make him the best player on special teams in the history of the sport. There are some kickers that may have a case for that title but that is beside the point.
