OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens and kick returner Devin Hester reached agreement on a one-year contract Sunday.
Over a 10-year career, Hester has returned 20 kicks for touchdowns, the most in league history. Hester, 33, a former college star at Miami, has been selected to four Pro Bowls.
His 14 career punt returns for scores are also a league record.
Baltimore spent much of the preseason trying to find a punt returner. Michael Campanaro and Keenan Reynolds were among those who tried, with unspectacular results.
Reynolds, the former Navy standout, joined the practice squad. After scoring an NCAA-record 88 rushing touchdowns as the quarterback for the Midshipmen, Reynolds was drafted in the sixth round but was cut Saturday.
Bears: Former USF quarterback B.J. Daniels, now a receiver, was waived. The team also planned to waive longtime kicker Robbie Gould, ESPN reported.
Bengals: The team claimed former Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel off waivers from San Francisco. Driskel finished his college career at Louisiana Tech.
Broncos: Ex-USF standout Kayvon Webster was named a captain for special teams, joining receiver Demaryius Thomas (offense) and linebacker DeMarcus Ware (defense) as a team captain. Webster, also a cornerback, is in his fourth season.
Chiefs: The team claimed linebacker Sam Barrington, a former USF standout, off waivers from the Packers.
49ers: Former Florida running back Kelvin Taylor, a sixth-round pick who was cut Saturday, joined the practice squad.
Jaguars: Veteran receiver Arrelious Benn, a former Buc, was signed to the 53-man roster. Benn, who played his first three seasons with Tampa Bay, spent last season on injured reserve.
Steelers: Linebacker Bud Dupree, a first-round pick last season, was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. He'll miss a minimum of eight games.
Texans: All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt passed his physical and will return to practice today, a good sign that he'll be ready for the opener against Chicago on Sunday. Watt missed training camp and the preseason after surgery on a herniated disc in July.
