The days of Devin Hester playing wide receiver are over. New Bears coach Marc Trestman said on Wednesday that the explosive Hester will only be used as a return man for the team.
This news is hardly surprising as Hester has been a liability in the passing game and the Bears have also had a turnover on their coaching staff.
Under Lovie Smith the Bears attempted to get Hester more touches to take advantage of his play making threat but that proved problematic as he had just 49 catches and two touchdowns over the last two seasons despite starting 13 games and playing in 31.
Trestman also said that he expects second year player Alshon Jeffery to be a starter on the Bears this season.
Brandon Marshall, Jeffery, Earl Bennett and Martellus Bennett will be Jay Cutler’s top-four pass-catching options.

I was in line at the Jewel grocery store Wednesday when word started spreading through Chicago: Brian Urlacher is no longer a Bear.
Where were you when you heard it, Chicago?
"They finally did it?'' the guy behind me asked. "What did they get for him?''
They didn't trade him. They dumped him.
"They dumped him,'' he repeated. "Ah...
Marc Trestman understands that Chicago Bears fans anxiously want to know whether iconic middle linebacker Brian Urlacher will be returning for a 14th NFL season.
Unfortunately for them, Chicago's new head coach doesn't have an update.
Urlacher remained unsigned Wednesday as Trestman spoke with the media Wednesday morning at the NFL owners meeting.
The fact Urlacher hasn...
Orlando Pace is a former professional football player who played offensive tackle in the NFL for thirteen seasons. Pace was the first overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. He played for the Rams for twelve years from 1997 to 2008. He then went on to play for the Chicago Bears in 2009, his last NFL season. Pace started 154 consecutive games and started 165 of the...
The Chicago Bears announced Wednesday that the team was unable to reach an agreement on a new contract with unrestricted free agent middle linebacker Brian Urlacher.
After the Chicago Bears announced tonight that they weren’t going to be re-signing linebacker Brian Urlacher, he made it clear that he was given an ultiminatium.
The Bears reportedly made Urlacher a one-year, $2 million offer and said take it, or leave it.
“It wasn’t even an offer, it was an ultimatum,” Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune. “I feel like I’m a decent football...
One of the many running backs that isn’t happy about the new rule that the NFL passed which prohibits offensive players from striking defenders with the crown of their helmets, is Bears’ running back Matt Forte.
After finding out that the rule passed, Forte tweeted that he’s going to open a bank account to pay his fines.
When athletes go to Miami in the offseason, bad things seem to happen.
Normally, they happen after 3am. In the case of Bears TE Evan Rodriguez, he was hitting the clubs a little too hard and according to CBS Miami was arrested for resisting arrest.
He was released on $1500 Bond.
According to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune, Bears’ head coach Marc Ttrestman told him that they plan on running the read-option with Jay Cutler in 2013.
I guess Trestman is confident in Cutler’s mobility. I would do my best to keep him out of harms way after all of the big hits he’s taken over the years. He’s not the most durable quarterback.

Of course, we've all seen this video before. I feel like Brady has one of these surprisingly athletic but not really that athletic moves every year. Last year it might've been either his scramble for a TD against Buffalo or when he kicked Ed Reed in the balls, can't decide which I liked more.
Anyway, Brian Urlacher is leaving Chicago after they basically told him they...
The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with tight end Steve Maneri.
Brian Urlacher is in search of a new team after the Bears chose to part ways and not re-sign him. Many experts figure the Minnesota Vikings would be a logical landing spot.
The Vikings and Urlacher’s camp have had some initial conversations, and there seems to be mutual interest. Pro Football Talk is reporting that the interest won’t be serious until Urlacher comes down in...
