After playing for the Seahawks in their Divisional Round loss to the Falcons in last season’s playoffs, kick returner Devin Hester said he thought he was done with his playing career. Hester didn’t get around to officially closed the door on returning until Tuesday, however. That’s when he posted a farewell to football on his Twitter account. Hester opened with a joke about it being OK for the NFL to move kickoffs back to the 30-yard-line now that the best returner in recent memory has hung up the cleats and went on to thank the University of Miami and Bears fans for welcoming him. Hester also touched on his time with the Falcons, Ravens and Seahawks after he moved on from Chicago.
