    Record-setting Bears returner moving to WR

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Devin Hester is taking his game-breaking skills to the Chicago Bears' offense.


    Hester set an NFL record last year for kick returns for touchdowns, and he started off the Super Bowl with a 92-yard kickoff runback for a touchdown. He rarely played on anything but special teams, though, and when he did, it was as a cornerback.

    Now, the Bears will try him as a wide receiver.

    Coach Lovie Smith said Monday the All-Pro return specialist will make the switch beginning with the upcoming minicamp.

    "I think Devin Hester is one of the most exciting players in the NFL with his hands on the football," Smith told ChicagoBears.com. "I think he would be an excellent defensive back, also. We just feel that this is in the best interest of us and him for him to achieve his full potential as a football player."

    Smith also expects to use Hester in the backfield at times.

    Does the fact that he is rated high on Madden bother me?


    Madden over did, I am very sure that Moss could have out ran him no problem yet he didn't get 100.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    I know.
    The whole Madden thing with me is a joke.
    I don't play the game, don't like the man etc etc etc.


    Every time you see me talking about Madden I am usually being cynical ;D

    They are probably hoping for the same results that the Lions got with Furrey. I just don't see it happening for them.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Re: Record-setting Bears returner moving to WR

    who cares..the guy is a good kick off returner who benefitted alot from a good group of blockers paired with alot of uncalled holds and illegal blocks..hes fast as hell yes, hes aqile as well, but hes just physically gifted..hes a pathetic skill position player, and that will never change..he will make no impact at all as a receiver or corner at any point in his career

    give him a year or two of decreased production, and he will be totally useless like dante hall has become
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    he was only a rookie so he does have time to improve, i think he could be a good option on reverses and screens
