(CBS) All indications are that return extraordinaire Devin Hester won’t be returning to the Bears.

NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Bears haven’t made an attempt to re-sign him and that he’s headed to the free-agent market. Players can begin negotiating Saturday, then begin signing next Tuesday.

 

Rapoport’s tweet echoes a Chicago Sun-Times column posted late Tuesday that was titled, “Hester’s departure from Bears seems inevitable.”

“The Bears certainly don’t want to match Hester’s $2.1 million salary from last season, not for a 31-year-old who contributes neither on offense nor defense,” the Sun-Times’ Adam Jahns writes.

Hester is tied for first in NFL history with Deion Sanders for special teams return touchdowns with 19.
