2012 Bears Offseason: Chicago Plans For Devin Hester-Specific Packages

Chicago Bears wide receiver and general playmaker Devin Hester thinks that the team will finally implement some offensive packages built specifically around his unique skills this year, as Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago writes.

Hester has had an inconsistent role on offense over the past five years, but he's excited about having packages built around him:

This offense, I really do truly think that (offensive coordinator) Mike Tice and (quarterbacks coach) Jeremy Bates and those guys really want to put this in this year. I'm looking forward to it and Mike Tice is more excited than anybody in this organization about putting in this Hester package. So if anybody, he's the guy that's going to control that.

At his peak as a receiver, Hester caught 57 balls for 757 yards with Chicago in 2009. Last season, he put up his lowest totals since 2007, but he's also had a massive role in special teams as one of the game's elite kick returners.

The Bears have long tried to figure out how to take his abilities with the ball and turn them into production on offense, but the results have always been mixed.
