Comments on: Trade Devin Hester Chicago Bears History Blog by Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:25:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Febster Fri, 25 Jul 2008 14:13:01 +0000 You’re obviously correct in saying that it’s all about selling papers and getting page hits in writing an article about trading Hester. All it does is keep the conversation going amongst level headed and realistic Bears fans regarding the hold out. Devin should at least show up to camp for practice to show good faith that he wants to stay a Bear. Then, management will be more willing to compromise and offer some type of package with a signing bonus and multiple incentives. I wouldn’t offer a lengthy contract with huge dollars, no way. What if he turns out to be a bust at WR? Then you have a WAY overpaid kick returner that no one else would want to pay in a trade. The biggest problem is that it’s uncharted territory for a kick returner holding out for more money based on performance. Stellar performance, sure, but keep in mind, the Bears special teams have been good for quite a while, even before Hester. They’re well coached and well prepared. Good punt and kick coverages. Hester has gotten huge help from good players who know how to block and create running room. It’s a team game, Devin. Remember to stay humble and pray the cast of key players around you stay healthy enough to keep your dick from hitting the dirt. The more you talk, the more receptive your mouth is to eating turf.
