The most exciting return man the NFL has ever seen has a new home. The Baltimore Ravens nabbed the speedy Devin Hester, signing him to a one-year deal. Hester had previously played for the Atlanta Falcons before they released him early in the offseason.

Hester made his career as the most electrifying returner in the NFL in Chicago with the Bears. He wasn’t quite as spectacular in Atlanta, but the Ravens gave the former Pro-Bowler a workout on Friday.
They must have liked what they saw, and quickly signed Hester to a contract.
WELCOME TO THE FLOCK, DEVIN HESTER!

Hester gives the Ravens something they haven’t had since Jacoby Jones: a dangerous threat in the return game. The magic Jones brought the Ravens made them a special team – and with Hester, maybe they can catch lightning in a bottle again.
