Hester looking for Falcons' rebound against Titans

ATLANTA (AP) - From his vantage point in Chicago, Devin Hester saw the Atlanta Falcons as "always competing in the playoffs."

Hester says the chance to get back to the postseason was a big reason he signed with Atlanta - despite the Falcons' 4-12 finish last season.

Now Hester is anxious for the Falcons to look like a playoff contender when Atlanta starters get an extended look in their third preseason game against Tennessee on Saturday night.

The Falcons struggled in last week's ugly 32-7 preseason loss at the Texans. Hester provided one of Atlanta's few highlights with his 12-yard touchdown catch.

Hester is best known as one of the top return specialists in NFL history. The opportunity to contribute on offense was another reason he signed a three-year, $9 million deal with Atlanta in March.
