Hester's agent Parker arrives for talks

SHARE Hester's agent Parker arrives for talks

It was not surprise to spot agent Eugene Parker at Halas Hall this afternoon.

As expected, he made the trip to Lake Forest from his base in Indiana, showing up to discuss the future of wide receiver/returner Devin Hester with management.

Surely Parkers arrival was relief for general manager Jerry Angelo, who was at least mildly irked by the barrage of questions centered on the face of the franchise, Brian Urlacher. Thats a face that is no doubt frowning in his contract staredown with the club. More on that situation later on.

But hammering out a deal with Parker will not be an easy thing. Hester has lofty ambitions, and justifiably so given his performance the past two seasons. He also has two years remaining on his rookie contract and it will be an interesting situation to follow.

These are very, very difficult things to do, Angelo said of longterm extensions.

Indeed.
