Don’t Lose Sleep Over Devin HesterMarch 5th, 2014
Too many people believe there will be a mass exodus out of Chicago, legions of Bears wanting to be reunited with their old boss and new Bucs boss Lovie Smith. Of course, Bucs fans always on the lookout for the shiny object in someone else’s yard began jumping up and down for Peanut Tillman.
Sounds nice until you take a cursory glance at the Bucs roster and, well, there’s no room for Tillman at the inn.
What did make a bit more sense is that ridiculous return man Devin Hester could come to the Bucs. And, no, Eric Page would not create a logjam and prevent the Bucs from signing Hester. The key here is, it appears, Hester will not choose the Bucs.
NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport threw out a little nugget on Twitter Tuesday that Bucs fans pining for Hester may want to find another return man to pant over.
@RapSheet: For those asking about a possible reunion for Devin Hester and #Bucs coach Lovie Smith: I don’t see it happening.
Joe won’t scoff at Rapoport. Let’s just say Rapoport has a pretty good pulse on what is happening behind the scenes in NFL circles when he isn’t being conned by Jed York. So Joe trusts Rapoport.
Yeah, it would be nice to see Hester return kicks at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, but apparently, it isn’t in the cards.
