This week Devin Hester will face his former team, the team where he scored tons of kick returns and played his heart out for the city of Chicago. The problem is Hester is a little upset with the way the Bears handled him in the off-season. Yesterday he spoke to Michael C. Wright claiming that the Bears did not even pick up their phone to call him, they basically said they were done and moving on.
“Chicago didn’t offer me anything,” Hester said, via Michael C. Wright. “They didn’t offer me [a] contract. They didn’t call me period, pretty much. I didn’t hear from Chicago. They didn’t say they were going to re-sign me. All I know is they were just going in a different direction.”
I expect the Falcons to trash the Bears this week, and Hester to have a huge game. I would not be surprised if he scored a touchdown or two against the Bears. Look for the Bears to get him the ball early and often.
