Devin Aromashodu will continue playing the NFC North this season, he’ll just be doing it for a different team.
The wide receiver agreed to terms on a contract with the Vikings after spending the last three years with the Bears. Aromashodu will sign a one-year contract and join a receiving corps that could lose Sidney Rice to another team at any moment. Aromashodu can hardly be expected to replace Rice in the offense, however. He caught just 10 passes last season and has 41 catches in 30 career games.
The best of those 30 games came against the Vikings in 2009. Aromashodu had seven catches for 150 yards and a touchdown in a 36-30 Bears win, part of a four-game stretch to close the season that represents the high-water mark of his career.
Aromashodu was drafted by the Dolphins in the seventh round of the 2006 Draft out of Auburn. He bounced to the Colts, Texans and Redskins before landing with the Bears in 2008.
