Devin Hester WR ATL Oct 13 '78

Bears GM Phil Emery doesn't expect Devin Hester to follow through on his retirement threats.

"I take all that in context of these guys had played a long time," said Emery. "Devin came in as a draft pick with Lovie. I certainly understand the emotion. There will be a time when his emotions clear." Hester's contract calls for a $10 million roster bonus this offseason, but that number has "de-escalated" because it was based on an ascension to the Bears' No. 1 receiver. We've yet to see the de-esclated number reported.
