WR/KR Devin Hester is unhappy in Chicago and is looking for a change of scenery. Hester is the BEST kick and punt returner to put on cleats, but he has never been able to make a huge impact as a wide receiver. Lovie Smith’s handful of offensive coordinators were unable to use his skill set in a role like the Green Bay Packers used Randall Cobb.
Many of you guys were not thrilled about the idea of adding Titus Young off of waivers. How about the idea of adding Devin Hester in a trade?
He doesn’t bring a bad attitude to the locker room like Young would, but he still would present the problem of an unreliable wide receiver. Even if he can’t make an impact as a receiver, he would be a game changer as a return specialist. Maybe Mike McCoy could come up with a game plan to get Hester the ball in situations where he can succeed.
The problem with trading for Hester is the possible price tag that comes with it. Hester is 30 years old, still has a few good years left, but he only has one more year left on his contract and who knows what the Chicago Bears would want in compensation for him. A 3rd round draft pick?
Beaters, what’s your thoughts on Devin Hester? Would you welcome that idea?
