Devin Hester will be a free agent, has a Kansas City Chiefs connection

@GoodGameBroCom

Should the Kansas City Chiefs pursue free agent Devin Hester?

The Kansas City Chiefs special teams are going to be seeing big changes with the team's top two returners (Quintin Demps and Dexter McCluster) scheduled for free agency.

Where could the Chiefs find someone to field punts and kicks?

The Bears will not re-sign the greatest return man of all-time in Devin Hester, who is 31 years old. The Kansas City connection is special teams coach Dave Toub, who was in Chicago doing the same job with Hester for years.

I can't decide how I feel about Hester. On the one hand, the Chiefs are losing their top two returners and that was an area that was important last year. Hester has return skills so that makes sense. On the other hand, are return guys getting better at 31 years old? Hester's last All-Pro season was in 2010. Is he worth it?

Hester played some cornerback early on in his career and then switched to receiver. He was exclusively on special teams last year though.
