    @AdamSchefter: Staying in NFC North: Vikings reached agreement with former Bears WR Devin Aromashodu on a one-year contract.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    You guys remember that 7 rec 150 yard game (1 TD) he had against us in 2009? He really impressed me. But our secondary was garbage and he hasn't done anything since. At least he is big and has good hands.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I like the signing. A big WR with blazing speed. Same hype as Berrian when we signed him from the bears. Hopefully he turns out to be a better playmaker! Now if we can get McNabb signed/traded for....

    I like this move. I'm sure it didn't cost much, and there's some upside here. Smart IMO.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    Yeah I remember him, I guess he's our new Berrian but being on a one year contract I think he'll...try harder........be more productive.......cheaper........or at worst I guess short term pain and excuses

    I was really impressed with that game in 09 and hope he does do well as a Viking

    Re: Vikings reach agreement with WR Devin Aromashodu

    I'm always skeptical about picking up guys who come from a team that is known for having a poor wide receiver corps.
    And I'm especially skeptical about picking up players who had one good game against us. That rarely seems to work out.

    However there is a little more to this players story.

    He has the size of an outside receiver with good speed.

    Height: 6-2 Weight: 201 Age: 27 4.34 40yd. dash.

    He seemed to be ascending in 2009 but hit a major bump in the road in 2010.

    That bump was Martz. Martz put him in the slot where he didn't belong and he ended up saying some things that put him in Martz dog house.

    Bears receiver Devin Aromashodu went from Jay Cutler's top target in Week 1 to deactivated in Week 3.
    So what gives?
    Several factors are believed to be in play.
    First, Aromashodu hasn't embraced the slot receiver position. Given his size, he's not ideally suited for it, nor does he have the sort of quickness to thrive in that role. He had at least three drops against the Detroit Lions in the first game, including several on routine slants.

    Martz had him feeling he was "walking on egg shells."

    Hopefully he will be used in his natural position on the outside, and Musgrave will help him realize his skills and talents.

    Hell, Berrian worked out so well. How could this possibly fail?
