Devin Hester doesn't want to "settle" on 14 return touchdowns

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears receiver Devin Hester just set an NFL record Monday, returning 14 in his career for touchdowns and passing Brian Mitchell.

But Hester isn't done.

"I don't want to just settle with 14," Hester said. "That's not a lot to me. I want to make sure this record is put out there far, so when the next guy comes along - when Devin Hester Jr. comes on - then it'll be well worth it."

Hester, though, was flattered that Deion Sanders told ESPN 1000 Tuesday that he's a Hall of Fame player.

"It's a great feeling, to get mentioned as a Hall of Famer, still in my career," Hester said. "You normally get selected, 20 years down, after you finish football."

Here's what Sanders told Waddle & Silvy: "Devin is a Hall of Famer, I can't think of a player that has an impact on the game the way he has. He is phenomenal and not only that he is a great kid."
