Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester did not work with the wide receivers Tuesday, April 16, during the first day of the team's voluntary minicamp. Instead, he worked all special teams plays, including kicks and punt returns. "I love it, man," Hester said after practice. Head coach Marc Trestman said Hester will focus on being the team's return man.
Fantasy Tip: With this news, Hester won't be fantasy-relevant in 2013, unless your league awards individual points for return yards and scores.

Chicago Bears WR Devin Hester said he has no plans to retire at this time; however, he may need a change of scenery in the offseason. Hester felt totally ignored on offense, at times. His frustration mounted and he lacked focus as his touches faded both during games and in practice. "I'm not making any excuses. I know some of the plays I should have made in terms of catching the ball. But I just wasn't feeling it. My mind wasn't there the majority of the time," Hester said. In terms of seeking a trade, Hester said, "It's a possibility. I'm loyal to my team. But the fans and my teammates have to understand where I'm coming from."

"He still has a lot of talent," Toub said in a radio interview. "You see it in practice. It's more mental with him. He has to get his mind right, and once that thing starts clicking, he's going to be fine."
