Former Bears legend Devin Hester has another shot at a Super Bowl ring

Former Bears legend Devin Hester has another shot at a Super Bowl ring

Devin Hester has another opportunity to add to his legend.

The NFL all-time record holder with 20 return touchdowns officially signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday as the team gears up for a Wild-Card playoff matchup with the Detroit Lions this weekend.

Hester, 34, played in 12 games with the Baltimore Ravens this season before he was waived in December. Hester averaged 24.5 yards on kickoff returns and 7.2 yards on punt returns, but failed to record a touchdown with the Ravens.

Hester's last postseason appearance came in the Bears' NFC Championship loss to the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field in 2010, and no Bears fan will ever forget the first time Hester made his presence felt in the playoffs as he capped off a record-setting rookie season by returning the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI for a touchdown.

Hester failed to earn a Super Bowl ring in his previous two trips to the postseason. Could the third time be the charm for the future Hall of Famer?

Mitch Trubisky jersey sales trending in right direction

Mitch Trubisky jersey sales trending in right direction

Positive press about the Chicago Bears' offseason is having a strong impact on the jersey sales for the team's highest-profile player, Mitch Trubisky.

According to Dick's Sporting Goods, Trubisky's No. 10 is the fifth-most popular jersey among offensive players over the last 30 days. He's No. 6 among all players, regardless of position.

The Bears' offseason has been full of superlatives since their aggressive approach to free agency. The signings of Allen Robinson, Trey Burton and Taylor Gabriel put the spotlight on Trubisky and the potentially surging passing game. The second-round selection of Anthony Miller and word of Kevin White's offseason emergence has turned positive momentum into higher-than-anticipated expectations for Trubisky this season.

For Chicago to have any chance at meeting those expectations, Trubisky, who's entering his first full season as a starter with a new head coach and offensive system, has to thrive. Fans must be confident that he will, considering the investment they're making in his jersey.

Trubisky ended his rookie season with four wins in 12 starts, throwing for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. He completed 59.4 percent of his passes. He should have a much more productive season in 2018 with his new arsenal of skill players and an innovative coaching staff, led by coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
