Data Points: Most kick and punt return TDs

Is Devin Hester the 32nd best player in football? Our analysts debated that very subject earlier this week, with most saying the stud return man wasn’t quite that valuable.

Maybe he isn’t. But his stature among great kick returners can’t be argued, especially among those who have excelled at taking back punts. Hester’s 10 scores on punts are tied with the great Eric Metcalf for the most in NFL history. Throw in his four career kickoff return touchdowns, and No. 23 on the Bears is the No. 1 returner of all time. If he keeps it up, maybe the next question should be is Hester a Hall of Famer?

Below are the players who have the most combined kick and punt return touchdowns in league history.
