Default Devin Hester Released

And the Ravens told the media they cut him because he sucks.

In the announcement, which came via Ryan Mink on the team’s official website, the Ravens weren’t particularly kind.

“The Ravens have waived veteran special teams returner Devin Hester Sr. after he made another mistake in Monday night’s 30-23 loss to the New England Patriots,” Mink wrote.

“Hester, 34, has not fielded the ball confidently on many occasions this season, and the latest gaffe led to two points for the Patriots.”

The Ravens are surely smarting after Monday night’s tough loss to the Patriots, and Hester’s performance didn’t help. But you’ve already waived the guy, Baltimore. Do you have to be so mean about it?

That wasn’t all Mink had to say about Hester.

“After the Ravens defense held the Patriots to a second straight three-and-out to start the game, the Patriots punted to Hester,” Mink continued. “He had time to make a fair catch, but moved out of the way, allowing the ball to bounce and roll to the 1-yard line.”

“Early on, (Hester) said (his performance) was because hamstring injuries limited his mobility and practice reps,” Mink wrote. “He attributed it to not getting enough work to feel comfortable. But Hester hasn’t been on the injury report since the bye at the start of November, and has still made mistakes.”

Oh, dear.
