SHARE Hester Reports to Camp

Bears fans can breath a sigh of relief. The team has reached a deal with wide receiver Devin Hester. Hester was sitting out of training camp until he signed the new contract - which is reportedly worth up to $40 million. Hester told reporters in Bourbonnais he’s glad to be back.

HESTER: I can live without any stress now, you know. As far as taking care of my mom - that’s the number one thing I’m gonna do now. At the end of the day I just want to thank God for everything he’s done for me.

In just two seasons in the NFL, Hester is already closing in on the all time record for most career punt and kickoff returns for touchdowns. He set single season records in that category each of the last two years.
