It's the 'end of an era' for the Bears, WR Devin Hester

Ian Rapoport of tweeted Tuesday that the Bears have made "no attempt" to re-sign soon-to-be free agent Devin Hester @D_Hest23 and added that this marks the "end of an era" for one of the NFL's best kick returners of all time.
Rapoport also said he doesn't see a reunion between Hester and new Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith happening. Smith coached the Bears from 2004-12.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Bears tried to put Hester's skills to use as a wide receiver for a handful of years, but he was much more adept and productive as a returner. That's how he will always be remembered, no matter what he does on the field in the future. The Bears took him out of their offense entirely this season. He currently holds the NFL career record for most special-teams return touchdowns and most punt return touchdowns. Hester has been with the Bears since he was drafted with the 57th overall pick in 2006. He has no fantasy value in leagues that don't count those return yards. He turns 32 in November.
