The Atlanta Falcons have announced that they have released wide receiver Devin Hester.

The three-time All-Pro was originally drafted by the Chicago Bears in the second round (57th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Miami (FL). Hester has been a dynamic return man during his career and holds the NFL record in return touchdowns (20) and punt return touchdowns (14).

Last season, Hester was placed on injured-reserve designated to return at the beginning of the season with a toe injury. He returned in Week 13 and recorded 269 total return yards during the last five games of the year.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Falcons signed wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and drafted wide receiver Devin Fuller out of UCLA this offseason in an effort to help Matt Ryan and add more depth to the wide receiver corp. Atlanta will also have intense competition at the kick/punt returner position with Fuller, RB Tevin Coleman, WR Eric Weems, and a handful of others battling for that spot, the story went on to say.
