Aromashodu leaves Vikings for division rival Bears

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu's stay in the NFC North is bringing him back to the Chicago Bears.

Chicago announced Monday it signed Aromashodu, who spent the past two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, via its Twitter account. Aromashodu, 29, had just 11 catches for 182 yards last season with Minnesota. Aromashodu is the Vikings' final unrestricted free agent to sign with a team this offseason.

Aromashodu, an original seventh-round draft choice by the Miami Dolphins in 2006, had 34 catches for 447 yards and four touchdowns with the Bears from 2009-10. Minnesota signed Aromashodu in 2011 after he posted the best single-game of his career (seven catches, 150 yards and a touchdown) against the Vikings in 2010.

Aromashodu's best NFL season was in 2011 with Minnesota as he had 26 catches for 468 yards and a touchdown, making six starts. But he never took advantage of the opportunity with the receiver-needy Vikings, who made significant changes at the position this offseason.
