Devin Aromashodu drawing interest from Vikings

SHARE Devin Aromashodu drawing interest from Vikings

Veterans cannot officially be signed until Friday. But, receiver Devin Aromashodu, who did not receive a tender from the Bears, is being strongly considered by the Vikings.

Aromashodu spent most of the 2011 season in the dog house, after playing significant snaps in the season opener. But, in that game, he played mostly in the slot.

Meanwhile, with an assortment of free agents and holes, the Vikings may not retain receiver Sidney Rice. The Bears have already invested heavily at that position, namely in Devin Hester. In addition, they’ll have to give Johnny Knox and Earl Bennett new deals at some point in the not so distant future.

So, it’s hard to imagine they could make a serious run at Rice, although indications were that the Bears would be interested if they could get him at a discount. How much? It’s unclear.

Aromashodu, though, gives them a big target to add to the mix, headlined by Percy Harvin.
