NFL Rumors: Kansas City Chiefs may sign Devin Hester

The Chicago Bears are moving on from one of the most storied players in their franchise’s history, as kick returner Devin Hester isn’t expected back with the team in 2014. But while the Bears are moving on from the future Hall of Famer, there are teams still willing to see what he has left.

One of those teams are the Kansas City Chiefs. According to Ian Rapoport from NFL Network, the Chiefs may be a team that lands Hester thanks to his relationship with special teams coach Dave Toub.

Toub was with Hester in Chicago while on Lovie Smith’s staff, and it’s possible that if Hester is willing to reunite with Smith in Tampa Bay, he’d also be willing to reunite with Toub in Kansas City.

Chiefs fans probably wouldn’t mind the addition of Hester either, as having a dynamic return man is never a bad thing. The only question is how much gas is really left in the tank?

    He would need to come very cheap. One dimensional player that fumbles as much as he has big returns.

  • Travis Forsyth

    You mean the second coming of Dante Hall could very well be coming to kc?!?! Oh Dude!!!!!!

    Much rather see DMC resigned.

    This would be a terrible signing. Since the Bears Super Bowl run he really hasn’t done much. He proved he wasn’t a WR and is only effective in the KR game. I would rather have DMC then Hester.

    doesnt provide much upside we dont already have… he isnt much of a receiver at all, he is 31 and prone to injury. We signed Dressler which is same size. I appreciate his skills and contribution to the bears over the years but just doesnt make any sense to me.

    Hasn’t done much recently and is 31 DMC is a better player.WR/RB
