According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, despite the additions the Chicago Bears have made to their receiving core through free agency and the draft, Devin Hester still remains a big part of their plans. General manager Phil Emery has indicated that they will have a special “Devin package” installed in this offense this season.
“Devin’s role has not changed,” said Emery. “We see him as a guy that is going to help our receiving corps in a big way. I know that Coach Tice has done a lot of planning. We want to make sure that we have a special plan for Devin, we have the Devin Package, a package of plays as a receiver. You never know where he is going to line up.”
Having a package for Hester is nice, but the Bears need to make sure he’s the only guy returning punts and kicks because that’s where he’s the most dangerous.
