Hester’s Spot On The Roster In Jeopardy Entering 2013?

Devin Hester

Devin Hester may be voted into the Hall of Fame someday as arguably the most dominant returner in NFL history. But right now he is working to hold onto that job with a new Bears coaching staff, John Mullin of CSN Chicago reports.

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.
