ATLANTA -- Veteran Chicago Bears kick-off return specialist Devin Hester has signed a three-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
Hester was released by the Bears just last week. According to NBC Sports, Hester said just last week that he had "at least 15 teams" interested in his services, and that he was looking for the right fit.
Hester has been an outstanding kick and punt returner, but has had trouble finding the right place for his services on either offense or defense. He started his pro career as a cornerback before switching to play as a receiver.
