The question as to whether or not Devin Hester is done with the Chicago Bears may have been answered on Wednesday night, and it may have been answered by Hester himself as he acknowledged on tonight’s edition of “NFL Total Access” that the team wants to go in a different direction, and he went so far as to thank the fans for everything.
“I know that Chicago wants to go a different route. All I can say is thanks to the fans for their support. They’ve always been great to me. Always been loyal. I couldn’t have played for a better city. … At the end of my career I do want to retire as a member a Bears,” Hester said Wednesday on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access.”
Hester, 31-years-old, has been a staple of the Bears organization since they drafted him from the Miami Hurricanes. Despite his age and years in the league, Hester still led the league in kickoff returns in 2013 and fifth in kick return average.
