Devin Hester had the record for most touchdown returns in a career, and then he didn’t. A holding penalty a few weeks ago on special-teamer Craig Steltz wiped away that punt-return highlight against the Rams and that page in the history book.

But it’s coming again.

The Bears feel it.

“Do I want to make a big play? Heck, yeah,” special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis said. “We want to get Devin in the end zone, so the record’s done, and he breaks it as a Chicago Bear, for sure. We want to get that done.”

Hester is tied with Deion Sanders with 19 touchdown returns in the regular season. (Hester actually has 20 if the postseason is included.) And while Hester had tied Sanders in 68 fewer games, there’s no guaranteeing he will return next season, especially with so many others with expiring contracts.

So there’s a sense of urgency. Everyone in the Bears’ locker room knows it would be amazing — and simply right — if Hester broke the record as a Bear.
