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.
