Former Atlanta Falcons Players Devin Hester and Dwight Freeney Inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2024

ATLANTA – The prestigious Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed 7 new members to its illustrious Class of 2024 on Thursday night. Among the distinguished honorees were two former players for the Atlanta Falcons who proudly wore the red and black jerseys during their illustrious careers.

One of the newly inducted Hall of Famers is Devin Hester, recognized for his exceptional skills as a punt and kick returner. Hester boasts an impressive career record of 19 kick and punt returns for touchdowns. Hester played for the Falcons from 2014-2015. Although he only spent one season with the team, it was an important one since they won the NFC Championship that year and faced the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.

Joining Hester in this esteemed class is defensive end Dwight Freeney, a force to be reckoned with on the field. Freeney, known for his relentless pursuit of quarterbacks, amassed an impressive 125.5 career sacks, securing the 18th spot in the NFL’s all-time sack list. His dominance on the defensive end and consistent impact on the game have earned him a well-deserved place among the football legends enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2024 reflects the pinnacle of excellence in the National Football League, and these two former players, Devin Hester and Dwight Freeney, stand as shining examples of the dedication, skill, and passion that define the dreams of every aspiring young football player.

Hester and Freeney, along with the rest of the Class of 2024, will be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, in August.
