DEVIN HESTER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Devin Hester on a short leash?

The Atlanta Falcons have a nice receiving tandem of Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, at least on paper so far. Devin Hester is also a wide receiver on the team, but everybody knows he’s primarily used as a special teams return man, given the fact he’s the best ever at the position.
