Devin Hester claims he can “cover any wide receiver” in the NFL

Devin Hester, a former collegiate and NFL cornerback and nickel back, participated with members of the secondary in individual drills open the media twice this week (Wednesday and Friday), and even spent roughly 10 minutes after Wednesday’s session working one-on-one with Bears’ defensive backs coach Jon Hoke.

“I can cover anybody,” Hester said before cracking a smile. “Just put a safety over-the-top, and I can shut anybody down. I need a safety over-the-top; I’m a Cover-2 man.”

If he feels that good about his cover skills, the Bears need to play him this week.  He faces the Rams and Tavon Austin. He might be able to shadow him this week, what do you think?
