Just to clarify, here is Hester's contract info for 2013:

$1,857,000 base pay that can be increased to around $6.5 mill based on performance in four categories--receptions, receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and combined touchdowns. He didn't do much this past season so that increase would be fairly negligible.

$250,000 workout bonus

$10 million de-escalating roster bonus based on #1 wide receiver production, which he won't see a penny of for obvious reasons.

$750k signing bonus cap hit.

All told, you're looking at about a $3 million cap hit, and cutting him would save about $2.25 mil against the cap.

He's a return specialist. Absolutely not.


Yes, but most return TDs ever.

Tied for most non-offensive TDs ever as well.

Devin Hester might be the right fit for the Vikings. Change of scenery. Wink
