Chicago Bears wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester
told reporters recently that he feels he can play two or three more years, but he
also believes a “fresh start” would be best for him. With a new coach and
general manager in place, the Bears could opt to trade or even release Hester
this offseason, according to Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.
After a month of introspection, Hester now believes he would
benefit from a "fresh start" while playing two or three more years.
Hester has been accused of checking out in the past, and he
admitted that he didn’t make some plays he should have made last season because
his “mind wasn’t there the majority of the time.” The 30-year-old finished the season
with only 23 receptions for 242 yards and one touchdown.
If the Bears are unable to find a taker for Hester, they may
instead to cut ties with the dynamic return man to avoid his roster bonus.
