Bears KR Hester May Have Trouble Making The Teams Roster

It’s starting to sound like one of the best return men in the history of the NFL may have issues just making his teams roster out of camp.

Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears is working to hold onto that job with a new Bears coaching staff.

New head coach Marc Trestman said as much earlier this offseason and observing the rotations during minicamp, with Earl Bennett among others fielding kicks.

Trestman again used the word “competing” to describe Hester’s situation as the Bears’ primary returner.

With the Bears tight against the salary cap, Hester’s 2013 base of $1.85 million is potentially a factor, as is his age (31 in November), if he does not establish a level of dominance approaching what he had before working into the offense as a receiver.
