Bears Look to Fill Hester's Shoes

Bourbonnais, IL- For the first time in eight years the Bears won’t have Devin Hester returning kicks. He’s an Atlanta Falcon now. So one of the questions at training camp is who will be the Bears’ top return man? Second year receiver Chris Williams and veteran receivers Eric Weems and Michael Spurlock will all get a shot at winning the job. Spurlock has the most experience as a return man in the NFL over his eight years in the league. He hopes to be the guy.

“I hope so, but those are some big shoes to fill. Devin is one of the greatest returners of all-time. It would be great to call him and ask him how he did it, and get some pieces on how he did everything, but at the end of the day it's just whoever can return be the best guy,” says Michael Spurlock, Bears Kick Returner.
