Baltimore brought Hester in on a one year deal. He participated in 12 games and only on special teams but he didn’t have any touchdown returns. He was released by the Ravens in mid-December of 2016.
The Seattle Seahawks needed a return specialist so they signed Hester in early January of this year. His debut for the Seahawks came in their opening playoff game against the Detroit Lions. He didn’t have a big impact in that game.
