Devin Hester will play for another team next year.
The Bears’ legendary kick returner said on the NFL Network Wednesday night that he won’t be re-signed when free agency begins March 11.
“From my knowledge, I know Chicago wants to go a different route with me,” he told NFL Total Access.
Hester reiterated his desire to retire a Bear, whenever his career might end. He acknowledged a potential fit with the Tampa Buccaneers and former Bears coach Lovie Smith.
“All I want to say is, thanks to Chicago for the support,” he said.
