Chicago Bears scintillating KR/WR Devin Hester has decided to hold out from training camp in hopes his absence will cause management to take his desire for a new contract more seriously.
Looks like Bears GM Jerry Angelo had no idea this was even a possibility, despite Hester’s agent Eugene Parker telling him as much a few days ago.
“He floated it out there, but I didn’t really take it serious because, as I say, we are still talking, we’re still in the process, there’s no closure. Usually when you say, ‘Hey, it’s over, take it or leave it, we’re out of money,’ you might get a reaction like that. But as you’re continuing on in negotiations as we have been, it is surprising.”
So, the Chicago Bears general manager is admitting he didn’t take the contract requests of HIS BEST PLAYER sincerely. That’s what he saying?!?
No wonder just yesterday Yahoo! Sports ranked Bears management 26th out of 32 total NFL teams.
Devin Hester is easily the most exciting player the NFL has seen since Deion Sanders. He’s not a malcontent poser, he’s not a druggie, he doesn’t have ‘baby mama drama’.
He’s a good kid who has simply outplayed his contract.
PAY THE MAN!!
