In 2010, Johnny Knox had more catches (51), receiving yards (960), receiving touchdowns (five) and even offensive snaps (864) than any other receiver. Hester, meanwhile, had 40 catches for 475 yards and four touchdowns.
But receivers coach Darryl Drake said the film showed that Hester consistently did what was asked of him.
Coach Lovie Smith said, “He’ll be a huge part of the offense.”
Before this news, we had Knox and Roy Williams rated 29th and 30th. But Hester could now break on to our list as well. We'll have to see how this situation works out, as it seems strange Knox would just not be a part of this offense after putting up the numbers he did last year.
