Former Bears star Devin Hester — the greatest return man in NFL history — isn’t ready to retire just yet.

Hester has a agreed to sign a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and the Baltimore Sun are reporting.

Hester, 33, appeared in just five games last season for the Atlanta Falcons because of a toe injury. He was released at the end of the season. He spent eight years with the Bears before going to the Falcons before the 2014 season.

Hester holds the NFL record for return touchdowns (20) and punt-return touchdowns (14). He also spent time as a wide receiver, catching 255 passes for 3,311 yards and 16 touchdowns.

But the Ravens plan to use him as a returner after cutting former Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds. Hester has just two return touchdowns since the 2012 season.
