Bears | Hester could eventually surrender punt return duties

Vaughn McClure, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester said he would eventually like to give up his punt return duties, but not at this point. First, Hester says he would like to break the record for the most kick returns for touchdowns. The record is currently at 13 set by former NFL RB Brian Mitchell. "But with me right now, I feel like at punt returns there are going to be opportunities where we're going to need big returns," Hester said. "With all the success we've had at the return game, it would be real crazy to just give it up now. Plus I'm looking to break this record. In the back of my mind, I've got to get this record before I give (punt returns) up."
