"CHICAGO -- Record-setting returner Devin Hester said Wednesday he will not be back with the Chicago Bears next season.
"From my knowledge, I know that Chicago wants to go a different route with me," Hester told the NFL Network. "All I can say is thanks to the fans for their support. They've always been great to me. Always been loyal. I couldn't have played for a better city than those guys. At the end of my career, I do want to retire as a member of the Bears.""
