Lovie Smith doesn’t plan to grant Devin Hester’s wish about returning kickoffs again.
The Bears coach said Wednesday that Hester would remain a full-time wide receiver and return punts, but not kickoffs, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The Bears are in good shape on kickoffs with Johnny Knox.
Chicago looks largely set at wide receiver, but the team is interested in adding a veteran quarterback. Caleb Hanie is currently Jay Cutler’s backup.
Smith sounds more interested in an older mentor type rather than a true option to play. Jake Plummer’s available, right?
