Free agent WR Devin Aromashodu worked out for the Lions.
Aromashodu was cut by the Bears earlier this week. Aromashodu still has some deep speed, but caught just 11 passes in 15 games for the Vikings last season. If he signs with the Lions, it will likely be after Week 1. Sat, Aug 31, 2013 08:50:00 PM

Date:

Bears released WR Devin Aromashodu, TE Leonard Pope, DT Eric Foster, RB Curtis Brinkley, S Derrick Martin, TE Gabe Miller, LB Patrick Trahan, DT Brent Russell, P Tress Way, OT A.J. Lindeman, C P.J. Lonergan, and LB Lawrence Wilson.

They previously cut S Tom Zbikowski and DE Kyle Moore. Chicago is down to 76 players and must make one more roster move ahead of Tuesday's deadline.

Bears signed WRs Devin Aromashodu and Jerrell Jackson.

Bears fans will recall Aromashodu from his three seasons (2008-2010) in Chicago, where he sometimes flashed vertical tools but never developed into a consistent offensive contributor. He's 29 years old now, and coming off an 11-catch season with Minnesota. Jackson is a former UDFA out of Missouri.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune expects the Vikings to move on from free agent Devin Aromashodu.

Aromashodu remained startlingly ineffective in 2012, catching just 11 passes for 182 yards. The Vikings need an overhaul at receiver, and the soon-to-be 29-year-old Aromashodu is part of the problem, not the solution.

Devin Aromashodu remains without a preseason reception despite nine passes thrown in his direction.

It's worth noting because Aromashodu's 33.3 percent catch rate last season was the lowest of any NFL receiver to play at least a third of his team's offensive snaps. Simply put, NFL receivers don't get any less effective. Stephen Burton and Michael Jenkins remain the clubhouse leaders to fill in for Jerome Simpson during his three-game suspension.

Vikings re-signed WR Devin Aromashodu to a one-year contract.

Aromashodu has intriguing size (6'2/201) and straight-line speed, but he's a stiff route runner and struggles to get open. Still a veteran of Bill Musgrave's scheme and an effective blocker, Aromashodu returns as a No. 4 receiver in Minnesota. He managed 26 receptions for 468 yards and one TD last season.

Free agent Devin Aromashodu's 33.3 percent catch rate was the lowest of any NFL receiver who played at least a third of his team's offensive snaps.

Aromashodu actually played more offensive snaps (676) than Percy Harvin (600), an indictment of the Vikings coaching staff. After struggling to catch the ball, run routes, and beat man coverage, Aromashodu seems unlikely to return to Minnesota in 2012.
Wed, Feb 1, 2012 09:50:00 AM

Devin Aromashodu caught three passes for 53 yards on 11 targets against the Bears in Week 17.

Forced into the starting lineup after Bernard Berrian's release and Michael Jenkins' season-ending knee injury, Aromashodu averaged 2.7 receptions and 45 yards from Weeks 10-17. The Vikings are certain to upgrade via the draft or free agency in 2012. Aromashodu will reach agency in March.
Sun, Jan 1, 2012 06:05:00 PM

Vikings WR Devin Aromashodu caught two passes for 29 yards in the team's Week 15 loss to New Orleans.

He secured 2-of-7 targets. Aromashodu has taken over as the deep threat in Minnesota's offense, but he's struggled with efficiency in a struggling passing game. He'll be a WR5/6 at best during fantasy championship week.
Sun, Dec 18, 2011 05:18:00 PM

Devin Aromashodu played 81-of-85 snaps in the Vikings' Week 14 loss to the Lions.

Aromashodu continues to rack up monster snap and target counts weekly. If he was anything more than a replacement-level talent, he'd be a strong fantasy play. He's still on the deep league WR3 radar this week with Christian Ponder (hip) ready to go for a home game against the Saints. Aromashodu has 10 catches for 137 yards in the last two weeks.
Tue, Dec 13, 2011 11:49:00 AM

Devin Aromashodu caught four passes for 47 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Lions.

Aromashodu was targeted 10 times and had a couple key drops on deep balls. He was also barely overthrown by Joe Webb when open on a bomb in the fourth quarter. Aromashodu isn't that talented, but he is playing every down and has 10 catches over the last two weeks. Desperate deep-leaguers can take a look heading into next week's matchup with the Saints.
Sun, Dec 11, 2011 06:24:00 PM

Vikings WR Devin Aromashodu caught six passes for 90 yards in the team's Week 13 loss to the Broncos.

Aromashodu was often in Andre' Goodman's coverage, and it became clear early in the game that the Vikings entered Week 13 planning to attack Goodman (not Champ Bailey). Thus, Aromashodu racked up a game-high 15 targets. Aromashodu's role has grown with Michael Jenkins (knee) out for the year, but he won't be a trustworthy WR3 option when the Vikings face the Lions in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 4, 2011 06:24:00 PM

Devin Aromashodu caught one pass for 42 yards in the Vikings' Week 11 loss to the Raiders.

It was his fourth reception since Week 6. Aromashodu plays virtually every snap in Minnesota's base and nickel offenses, but he's more of a blocker and situational deep threat than anything. He won't be a Week 12 fantasy option.
Sun, Nov 20, 2011 05:34:00 PM

Devin Aromashodu led Vikings receivers with 62 snaps played in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Michael Jenkins saw 50 snaps and Percy Harvin was limited to 28. Although Aromashodu also led the way in targets (6), he caught just two passes for 20 yards. As a true playmaker, Harvin is the only one worth rostering in this receiving corps.
Tue, Nov 1, 2011 12:10:00 PM

Devin Aromashodu caught just two passes for 20 yards against the Panthers in Week 8.

Aromashodu led the Vikings with six targets, but his most noteworthy play was a miscommunication with Christian Ponder on a sideline route. He's averaged just 16.5 yards per game while playing full-time snaps the past two weeks.
