And Your First Free Agent Signing Is...Devin Aromashodu?!

Oh, joy.  With the Vikings needing help at defensive end, quarterback (and please, dear, sweet, seven pound, five ounce baby Jesus, not Donovan McNabb) the first free agency signing of the 2011 season is former Bears WR Devin Aromashodu.

First off, I'm not thrilled that the Vikings seem to chase after every Bears WR that they don't pursue.  I mean, that would be okay and all, if they weren't anything more than mediocre.

In recent years, we've been thrilled with the seven yard outs of Bobby Wade, and Bernard Berrian's eternal hamstring issues.  Well, there was this:


Yeah, that was pretty sweet.  But other than that, Berrian was a huge waste of free agency money and probably won't be back, Wade was serviceable, but produced about as many yards as a league average tight end, and now the Vikings have signed Devin Aromashodu.  What are DA's numbers?  (And because Aromashodu is so damn difficult to spell, his Delta Tau Chi name will henceforth be DA).

In 3 seasons with the Bears, he has 41 catches, 543 yards, and 4 TD's.  This seems like an insurance move for depth, and it indicates to me that Berrian won't be back, but that the Vikes remain hopeful that they can re-sign Sidney Rice.

Welcome to Minnesota, DA.  May you have a great 2011 season.
