    Re: Vikings reach agreement with WR Devin Aromashodu

    the last bears receiver we picked up ended up being such a stud. what a great move.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    This is a mch different move considering the money. If we fight off the Seahawks and keep Rice, then we have a strong enough corps with Rice, Harvin and Aromashodu that we can let Berrian go.

    Berrian is no longer hungry and he would rather tweet than show up for games. Bernard also seemed to milk injuries. He is a good replacement.

    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.

    Devin Aromashodu working his way out of 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.
    http://blogs.suntimes.com/bears/2010/10/devin_aromashodu_mike_martz_doghouse.html

    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.
    Lets be clear here. This cat is a replacement for Berrian.

    We saw how effective the "Outside" reciever is in this scheme without the guy in the middle taking S help away.

    I do like the pickup as another option, mostly cause I don't see alot of work for a deep guy early in this scheme if Ponder starts.

    It is imperative that we get a guy to replace Rice (if we can't outbid the seachickens) or it won't matter who is on the outside.

    He did pretty good until a certain Noodle Arm showed up who couldn't get him the ball. :P

    Go ahead, Midg, correct me on that 20.9 ypc stat again.

    IF Aromashodu can make plays like that routinely then he'll be a very nice pick up
