When Brian Urlacher was released from the Chicago Bears the team did something similar. Well today the Chicago Bears put out a press release to cut their franchise leading return specialist.
The Bears announce they won’t re-sign KR/PR Devin Hester. He was fifth in the NFL at 27.7 yards per KR & averaged 14.2 yards per PR.

For the past eight seasons we have been honored to have Devin Hester as a part of our organization,” Bears general manager Phil Emery said in a statement. “While Devin has redefined the pinnacle standard of the return position in the NFL, the memories and contributions he has given us cannot be measured by stats or numbers.
“Not only is Devin a special player, he is also an exceptional person. He is a great teammate, husband and father. Devin represented the organization off-the-field as well as he did on it. When his career is over, he will always be a welcome member of the Bears family. We thank him for his dedication and wish him and his family all the best.“
