Hester says he won't be back with the Bears

Posted:

 Record-setting returner Devin Hester says he will not be back with the Chicago Bears next season.
   Hester told the NFL Network on Wednesday that Chicago "wants to go a different route with me," and that they are "parting ways" with him.
   That means he will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent and that an eight-year run with the Bears that produced no shortage of highlights is coming to an end.
   He matched Hall of Famer Deion Sanders' NFL record with his 19th return for a touchdown last season, tying his friend and mentor with an 81-yard punt return at Washington in October.
