07:10 AM ET 08.21 | Devin Hester, Hall of Famer? Hester is the greatest return man in NFL history and his next return touchdown will tie Hall of Famer Deion Sanders for the most in NFL history at 19. ... There is only one player in the Hall of Fame, kicker Jan Stenerud, who never played offense or defense. Punter Ray Guy someday may get there, while Hester, who came into the league as a cornerback and moved to wide receiver, knows to make it as a return man, he has to erase any question. "I have one foot in right now," he said. "If I take three or four back this year, it should be considered 80 percent chance of making it. But I am not really worried about it right now. I am really focused on this season. After this season, when all the stats add up, hopefully it won't be a question."

"But I am not really worried about it right now."

He was probably responding to a reporter's question.

Nothing to see here.

One foot in the Hall of Fame and one foot on a banana peel?

Hester belonging in the HOF could be an interesting conversation someday, but not now.

I'm not worried about it either. Won't happen.

I suspect it is more like one toe in than a foot, but you have to admire his attitude. Honestly, I think you have to feel that way to play that game..

Deon is in the Hall because of his popularly with media and fans not for his defensive play or tackling. The writer said it like it is the best punter in NFL history Ray Guy ( Southern Mississippi and Oakland Raiders ) is still being over look every year when it is time to vote on new inductees.

"The ruling is that the receiver only had one foot in. We will review five years after the player retires."
