Cris is joined by arguably the best return man of all time, Devin Hester. He may have never wanted to play Wide Receiver, but he quickly blossomed into one of the greatest kick and punt returners we'll ever see.

Cris brings Devin back to his humble beginnings to talk about his upbringing in football and how his family life wasn't easy.

He then brings us to his fight to get his scholarship at the University of Miami.

Devin recaps his infamous opening kickoff return in Super Bowl 41, recounts his years with the Chicago Bears, and his love for the game of football.

Devin's career is outrageous. Cris brings us through the accolades and Devin fills in the gaps with some fantastic anecdotes leading him to being on the ballot for the hall of fame this year.
