    Of course, that was in 2009...he sort of vanished in 2010. Kind of like Rice, only minus the team-screwing surgery.

    Martz moved him to the slot where he didn't belong and he ended up in Martz's dog house, so didn't play much.

    Martz couldn't remember how to pronounce his name so he benched him.

    Good news though, now that we have Aromashodu and BB, we wont have to bring back Bobby Wade! Can you say superbowl?

    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.
    Lets be clear here. This cat is a replacement for Berrian.
    Pretty sure I already established that.
