Sic Semper Tyrannis

I was hoping for a long, bitter, and ultimately destructive holdout.

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears kick return star Devin Hester returned to training camp Friday, but the team did not say whether he had signed a new contract.

Hester skipped the Bears’ first practices this week in a holdout.

Bears spokesman Scott Hagel said he didn’t know if the two-time Pro-Bowler will practice or if he has signed a contract.
He’s got two years left on his current contract, by the way. He’s supposed to make less than half a million dollars – yeah, I know, that's a lot, but considering his ability and stardom and importance to the Bears offense...they'd be stupid not to renegotiate with him. And nobody’s that stupid.

Oh, right, the Bears stood pat with Grossman and Orton. OkayI take that last sentence back.
