He’s easily the greatest return man in the history of football. Every time Devin Hester touches the ball, it’s a possible highlight film. However, Hester is feeling neglected on the offensive side of the ball, and says he may want to start over with a new team.
Hester had pondered retirement after coach Lovie Smith was fired, but is having a change of heart, and looking for a change in scenery instead.
"I'm going to try to get two or three more years in,'' Hester told the Chicago Tribune.” I think I have that much left in me.
"At the same time, I think I do need a fresh start.''
"Not only this year, but the last couple of years it has been like that,'' said Hester. ”It was really starting to show, why I was frustrated.”
"I'm not making any excuses. I know some of the plays I should have made in terms of catching the ball. But I just wasn't feeling it. My mind wasn't there the majority of the time.''
”I'm loyal to my team. But the fans and my teammates have to understand where I'm coming from.”
"I don't want to walk away from this game with another season going the way it ended this year. … It might have to take a fresh start somewhere else.''
