Bears' Hester Allegedly Received Benefits At The U

Chicago Bears star wide receiver/punt and kick returner Devin Hester received everything from cash to rims for his car in violation of NCAA rules while at the University of Miami from a former booster according to a report on Yahoo! Sports. Nevin Shapiro is serving a 20-year prison sentence for masterminding a $930-million Ponzi scheme and claims to have provided impermissible benefits to 72 of the university's football players and other athletes between 2002 and 2010. According to the Yahoo! Sports report, Hester allegedly also received multiple cash gifts, an engagement ring, tickets to a playoff basketball game, VIP access to nightclubs, meals and lodging at Shapiro's $2.7-million Miami Beach home. Hester refused to discuss the subject on Wednesday.
