Should the Detroit Lions sign PR/KR Devin Hester?

On Tuesday, the Baltimore Ravens announced they were releasing one of the greatest returners in NFL history, Devin Hester.

So far in 2016, Hester has averaged 24.5 yards per kick return and 7.2 yards per punt return, but on Monday night the veteran made a mistake that must have been the nail in his coffin. Rather than fielding a punt against the New England Patriots, Hester decided to let it go, a move that ended up leading to a safety to put the Patriots up 2-0.

One team that should take a long hard look at Hester is the Detroit Lions. The Lions currently have Andre Roberts returning punts and kicks, but his decision-making has been questionable at best this season. Roberts is averaging 14.1 yards per punt return, which is near the top of the league and he does have two returns for touchdowns. That being said, he has fumbled once and has been indecisive on multiple occasions. As far as kick returns go, Roberts has struggled, averaging only 22.3 yards per return.

Devin Hester, who is now 34-years-old, is definitely not the same as he was when he was in his prime, but he does have experience, and that counts for something in the NFL.

If Bob Quinn is smart, he will bring Hester in for a workout to see how he stacks up against Roberts. Who knows, maybe the Lions GM will like what he sees.

Let us know what you think!
