Devin Hester looking to reunite with Lovie Smith?

Devin Hester has just parted ways with the Chicago Bears but could he already have his eye on a reunion in Tampa?

The return specialist announced that he was being let go by the Bears late Wednesday night which instantly brings up speculation that he will reunite with Lovie Smith. Here what he had to say about it:

“I look at Lovie as my No. 1 coach right now because he’s the one that took a chance on me coming out of the draft,” Hester said. “He has all my respect so if he’s a guy that is going to shoot at me and want me to come play with him again, my arms are open.”

The Bucs special teams didn’t exactly set the world on fire last year so it would be a good idea to give Hester a look. He will likely have to take a reduced salary though because it’s pretty clear at this point his true position is KR/PR.
