Devin Hester: I'm the best all-around player in the NFL

Devin Hester @D_Hest23 won't be returning to the Chicago Bears after a memorable eight-year run. He knows that he must now market himself to other teams, and his strategy is an extremely confident one.
During an interview with NBC 5 in West Palm Beach, Fla., Hester was asked who he thinks is the NFL best all-around player right now. His answer?
"Me. ... I can go and play corner, I can go and play receiver, I can play running back, and I can play a little bit of safety, as well as kickoff and punt returner."
Hester also said his preferred team is the one that wants him and fits him the most.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hester has played defense sparingly since 2008; he has three total tackles since then. The Bears tried to work him in more as a wide receiver as the years went by, but he was just OK at that task. Everything Hester is in the league up to this point is due to his spectacular ability as a returner. That's why the Bears smartly used Hester as a punt and kick returner exclusively last season, and he responded by leading the NFL in return yardage by 400 yards. That should be his job with his new team. But there's no harm in believing you can do anything, especially if a team willing to pay you believes it, too.
