Devin Hester: NFL Game-Changer

Chicago Bears return specialist Devin Hester, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is one of the most exciting players in the game with a football in his hands.

"I love it," says Hester about returning kicks.

In his career, Hester has 17 combined kick-return touchdowns (12 punt, five kickoff), the most in NFL history. Additionally, he scored on a 92-yard kickoff-return in Super Bowl XLI.

"He's a special player," says Bears quarterback JAY CUTLER. "He's a game-changer. I'm glad he's on our team."
