Devin Hester was born a son of Lenorris Hester, Sr. and Juanita Brown but his parents divorced when he was a toddler. Before he was introduced to football, Hester’s mother was severely injured in a car crash, and only two years after his father died, so Devin experienced a tough period, but thanks to his stepfather Derrick Brown and brother Lenorris, Jr., he managed to escape depression.

Hester went to Palm Beach Gardens High and then to Suncoast High School where he started playing running back, cornerback, wide receiver, and return specialist. During his college years at the University of Miami where he played for the Miami Hurricanes, Hester established himself as one of the best return specialists in the country. He finished college with six returning touchdowns, one rushing, and one receiving touchdown. Hester also recorded five interceptions while playing as a defensive back.

The Chicago Bears selected Hester the 57th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, and he stayed there until 2014. Already in his rookie season. Hester recorded two kick-off return touchdowns and three punt return scores. Although he didn’t participate in offence, Devin’s contribution to the team was immense, and he was selected to the Pro Bowl. In his sophomore year, Hester recorded 20 receptions for 299 yards and two touchdowns, while he continued to play a key role on special teams with two kick-off returns for touchdowns and a career-best four punt returns to the end zone that earned him a consecutive invitation to the Pro Bowl.

During the next three years, Hester was frequently used in offensive actions, but his special team numbers dropped, so he recorded only three punt return touchdowns in that span. He nearly reached 2,000 receiving yards in the meantime, along with ten scores. Before he left Chicago to join the Atlanta Falcons in 2014, Hester spent more time as a return specialist. He set numerous franchise records, but the Bears decided not to re-sign him, so he signed a three-year contract with the Falcons, which increased further his net worth.

Hester had a solid first season with the Falcons and made it to his latest Pro Bowl, but missed a big part of 2015 season due to a lingering toe injury, and Atlanta released him in July 2016. The Baltimore Ravens offered him a one-year deal worth of $2 million which Hester accepted and signed it in September 2016, adding further funds to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Devin Hester was in a relationship with Tamara James, a women’s basketball player and was engaged to her, but they called it off later. In 2010, Devin married an elementary school teacher, Zingha Walcott. His family house was struck during Hurricane Wilma in 2005, and Hester helped them rebuilding it.
