NFL Free Agency Rumors: Miami Dolphins contact Devin Hester

The free gent market for future Hall of Fame kick returner Devin Hester hasn’t been as hot as his kick returns usually are, but it appears that after almost a week of being a free agent, there is a team reaching out to sign him.

While no contract has been discussed — at least publicly — the Miami Dolphins have reportedly reached out to Hester’s agent about signing his client.


There was reported interest from the Dolphins earlier in the offseason after it became known that the Chicago Bears would not be bringing Hester back. Other teams interested like the Eagles, Buccaneers, Giants and Chiefs have apparently lost interest, but the Dolphins look to be swooping in for the grab.

Nothing is imminent, but if there is mutual interest between the Dolphins and Hester, which there seems to be, then a deal could be hammered out by the end of the weekend.

    Go for Hester, he will go for the goal line. What a terrific return man, awesome to watch. The guy is lightning in a bottle.

  • AWalton

  • Dewbert

    I have a hard time paying big bucks for a kick returner… especially one who is past his prime and who has made two touchdowns in the last three years.

    • Ali Pendier

      Sure glad youre not paying, is he asking ‘big bucks’?

      • Dewbert

        I don’t know what he asking for, but anything more than league minimum is big bucks for someone that has produced that little as of late. And, here is another reason not to take him: “Coach Trestman wanted me for receiver, but I told him I’d rather just focus on kickoff and punt returns.”-Devin Hester, Sun Sentinel. Regardless of the fact that he sucks at receiver, he needs to be a team player and do what the coach wants him to do.
