The return man agreed to a three-year deal with the Falcons, the team announced Thursday.
Hester is 13th in NFL history for all-time kickoff and punt return yardage and the all-time leader in punt returns for touchdowns with a ridiculous 13 scores.
You'll notice the Falcons refer to him as a wide receiver as well. That's obviously Hester's offensive designation, though he does most of his damage on returns.
It'll be interesting to see how Dirk Koetter uses him on the field during offensive snaps however. With Roddy White and Julio Jones also on the field, as well as Harry Douglas, it would be difficult for anyone to really keep an eye on Hester.
At the very least, he could get deep or serve as a real thorn in the side of opposing defenses.
