As we noted on Sunday, Chicago Bears WR/returner Devin Hester has re-considered his retirement plans, and would like to contribute to a team. However, given that he's still got some hurt feelings from Lovie Smith being fired, he'd like to continue his career with another franchise.

It's not that easy, of course. The Bears will need to trade him (and some other team will need to be interested in providing a proper return for Hester). Many teams should be interested -- some teams, like the Houston Texans specifically, are looking to bolster their return game this offseason -- but the second part of the previous sentence could be the sticking point: what is Hester worth in trade?

We may find out soon enough.

Fresh start for Hester?

"Because he is under contract for 2013, Hester would need to convince the Bears to trade or release him in order to move on. It's not clear yet how new coach Marc Trestman would use him, but at 30, you would think Hester has several productive years ahead of him. Hester is the best return man in the history of the NFL, and that fact alone should force the Bears to exhaust every effort to keep him. On the other hand, sitting on prominent players who want out is never a good team-building policy. We also shouldn't disregard the financial side of this situation. Hester has only one year remaining on his contract. I'm guessing he wouldn't be looking for a fresh start anymore if the Bears offer him a market-level contract extension. "




Man it would be nice to have Hester in the KR game and to a lesser extent in the offense in a capacity that suits him.

A lot of his anger comes from their parting ways with Lovie Smith.

My best guess would be if he's not a Bear next season he follows Dave Toub to Kansas City.

Yeah he's a Chief. Would love to have him but I doubt he would come to this dumpster fire of a STs unit.

Hester id dumb as a post can't run a decent route which is why he isn't a factor in the bears offense. As for.a returner, kick away like they have for 2 years.
