Devin Hester and the Bears are no longer synonymous, and that has the prolific return man near tears.

Hester "can't believe" the Bears' decision Thursday to not bring him back, he said on Twitter.

Watching old highlights of Hester's once-lethal return ability is enough to make any Bears fan long for those good old days and hope that Hester would stick around. Apparently, it had the same effect on Hester himself.

Hester returned 19 kicks in his eight-year career in Chicago, plus the return of the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI.

Judging by this tweet, Hester's pretty upset he won't be coming back.
