05:10 PM ET 04.08 | The Bears have finally won the battle of convincing Devin Hester he is strictly a kick returner. Hester said he is fine with solely serving as a return specialist in 2013, according to Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times. Marc Trestman recently said he would like to see Hester focus on returning to form as the league's best kick returner. He has no intention of developing Hester as a wide receiver in his new offense with the Bears. Last year, Hester complained about the amount of targets he saw in Chicago's offense. He was unhappy with his role and wanted the ball in his hands more often. He finished the year with 23 receptions for 242 yards and one touchdown.

If he really was a team player he would have shut his mouth and accepted it a few years ago so Chicago could have won a few more games by getting themselves a REAL wide receiver instead of his alligator armed self.

True, but give him some credit for finally waking up

Come on! With your avatar I know who you root for and you see mine. You can NEVER give a Bear credit for anything except leaving through free agency. :)

Better than not having a job, but he knows this means a pay cut in the future, and when he can't return kicks anymore, nobody will want him for anything else.
