Ravens Release Devin Hester

One of the greatest kick returners of all-time is out of work. The Ravens announced that they have released Devin Hester. Michael Campanaro will be promoted from practice squad and serve as the team’s new returner. The Ravens also placed running back Lorenzo Taliaferro on injured reserve and signed inside linebacker Lamar Louis"<strong

Hester was a late addition to the Ravens’ roster, joining the club on Sept. 4. The 34-year-old averaged 24.5 yards per kick return and 7.2 yards per attempt on punt returns. Lately, however, he has struggled to field kicks. Last night, he made a costly decision to not field a punt and it would up resulting in a safety.

The veteran could be a fit for the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter) speculates.

    Philly could use him since Sproles was run over on Sunday.

  2. Cue the deranged Patriots fans that think Hester will be better than “Circus” Jones, despite actually watching Hester’s last game.

      Man. Hester has always had issues with punts inside the 10. That was an issue even when he was at his best in Chicago.

      I’m not deranged, but knowing what Hester has done in the past, not that I’m expecting that production, seeing that game, but seeing a whole season of that fricken Jones guy, give me Devin Hester.
