And the hits just keep on coming. Still in a contract dispute with the front office, Devin Hester did not show for the first day of Bears training camp.
Talks on a contract extension ran out of time and the team is expected to fine him $15,000 a day.
The problem is figuring his value as the Bears think he could be a No. 1 receiver. Hester, a two-time Pro Bowler, is scheduled to make $445,000.
The Bears need to give the guy his money, but Hester also needs to get into camp. If he wants #1 receiver money he needs to win a #1 receiver spot. Being out of camp for any amount of time doesn't help.
