LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. The Bears confirmed Thursday that they are parting ways with the three-time Pro Bowl pick after eight seasons, confirming what he told the NFL Network the previous day. So instead of a return to Chicago, hell hit the market as a free agent. General manager Phil Emery said it had been an honour to have Hester on the team. "While Devin has redefined the pinnacle standard of the return position in the NFL, the memories and contributions he has given us cannot be measured by stats or numbers," he said. "Not only is Devin a special player, he is also an exceptional person. He is a great teammate, husband and father. Devin represented the organization off-the-field as well as he did on it. When his career is over, he will always be a welcome member of the Bears family." Hester matched Hall of Famer Deion Sanders NFL record with his 19th return touchdown last season, tying his friend and mentor with an 81-yard punt return at Washington in October. It was Hesters 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category. He has also returned five kickoffs and a missed field goal for a touchdown. Hester is best remembered by Bears fans for returning the opening kickoff in the 2007 Super Bowl for a touchdown. He ran it back 92 yards for a score in a game won by Indianapolis. Hester endured several lulls on returns during his career, particularly when the Bears tried to make him a receiver. But he showed some of his old form while focusing solely on returns last season. Hes the second Bears star to leave the team in as many years: Last May, linebacker Brian Urlacher announced his retirement after 13 seasons, all with the Bears. The eight-time Pro Bowler and the team were unable to reach a deal a year ago and he eventually decided to call it quits. Shoes Canada Cheap .

Chivas (3-10-4) got its second straight draw while extended its winless streak to 12 in the opener of a three-game road trip. "I think they are starting to play more as a team and less as individuals," Chivas coach Jose Luis Real said through a translator. Real took over at the end of May for Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. Although he is still searching for his first win as Chivas coachr, the team is showing improvement, The Goats tend to show up more against Dallas than against other opponents, and Thursday night was no different. Dallas has not defeated Chivas in six straight matches. "I dont know what it is," Real said. "I think its motivation. Obviously the players come in the game with the motivation (to take down a top team)." Dallas (8-3-7) is winless in its last five matches and sits two points behind Real Salt Lake atop the Western Conference. There were plenty of chances for both teams, though neither could take advantage. Chivas outshot Dallas 17-6, holding a 6-1 advantage on shots on goal. "I think were trying to get in the right path," Chivas midfielder Jorge Villafana said. "The thing is looking better each game. Last game we had the opportunity to get three points, we let ourselves tie it, and this time I think we did a good job coming here and getting a point in a difficult place (against) a good team." Dallas sent its first 10 shots off target, missing the goal by inches on several occasions. Chivas kept rifling shots that were blocked by Dallas defendders, including four shots in one sequence in the 54th minute.dddddddddddd Jackson nearly put Dallas on the board in the 85th minute when he headed a cross just wide of the post. One minute later, Kennedy made a toe save on Blas Perezs header. Both teams squandered stoppage-time free-kick opportunities to saddle them with a point each. Dallas had three strong scoring opportunities in the opening 10 minutes of the game, including a strong showing on early set pieces. Defender Stephen Keel, making his first start for Dallas, just missed a header six minutes in on a corner, which would have been the 30-year-olds first career MLS goal. Four minutes later, Michels left-footed free kick from about 30 yards didnt quite curl back far enough, caroming off the far post. From there, Chivas backline tightened in the middle as the visitors starting pressing up and limiting the Dallas chances to ones created on the wings. "The beginning of the first half, we were playing really well and we kind of faded in the middle of the game," Dallas defender Matt Hedges said, "and we were giving the ball away, I think, too much and not keeping enough possession. It started to be kind of a track meet back and forth." Chivas found its footing in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Eric Avila, who played for Dallas from 2008-11, had a ground shot from about 25 yards stopped by a diving Raul Fernandez in the 30th minute. Avilas attempt triggered a string of shots to end the half, including Jose Correas about-face shot from six yards out that just went wide when he found the ball off a neat back heel from Walter Vilchez following a corner.
