2012 Bears Offseason: Chicago To Have Special 'Devin Package' For WR Devin Hester

According to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Bears will be instituting a special offensive package for dynamic return man WR Devin Hester:

"Devin's role has not changed," general manager Phil Emery said. "We see him as a guy that is going to help our receiving corps in a big way. I know that Coach Tice has done a lot of planning. We want to make sure that we have a special plan for Devin, we have the Devin Package, a package of plays as a receiver. You never know where he is going to line up."

Hester currently owns the NFL record for punt return touchdowns with 12 and leads all active players with 18 non-offensive touchdowns. The Bears have attempted to develop him into a starting wide receiver, but after six seasons at the position, Hester has averaged only 27.9 receiving yards per game to with 13 career touchdowns.
