2012 Bears Offseason: Devin Hester Says He May 'Never Be A No. 1 Receiver'

The Chicago Bears offseason is underway and the latest news from the offensive side is that WR Devin Hester is having the best camp of the all the receivers. But that does not mean the dynamic kick returner will be taking playing time away from WR Brandon Marshall. According to Hester, the Bears latest acquisition should not worry about losing the No. 1 spot to Hester, who is looking for his own niche:

"I can just sit back and play now," Hester told CSNChicago.com. "Everybody wanted me to be the No. 1 receiver. I might never be a No. 1 receiver. But I’ll be Devin Hester. That’s it. That’s my mindset."

Hester has struggled since becoming the team's top receiver in 2009. As a wideout, Hester has caught for only 2565 yards over five seasons, averaging only 2.1 receptions per game and 27.9 yards per game.
