Rodriguez was a 4th round pick last season, but got into too much trouble with the law.

Devin going back to the bears Laughing.

He was horrible for us. Lucky if he makes the team.

Hey now, Devin can catch 1/3rd of everything thrown his way! Wink

He's awful. Doubt he makes the team.

Was Devin that bad after leaving Chicago? he seemed like an average WR

Below average WR, probably best suited as a #4. Even then, he is a low end #4.

Aromashodu will occasionally make a big splash play but disappears to often to be a reliable receiver.

Why would any team keep him as a #4 WR when they can have a guy with some promise and a chance to get better?

Chicago would be foolish to keep Aromashadow.

Seriously, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear his name is "Incomplete Pass". You're literally throwing to a shadow.

With that in mind, I hope Chicago gives him a 100 mil dollar contract.

lf he makes the team to begin with, he'd be #5/#6 on the DC, contributing mostly on ST's.

Aromashodu stood out in Chicago during the 2009 season because the other receivers were exceedingly awful.

I like Aromashodu but I'll be surprised if he makes the Bear's 53. The coaches always talked about how if he could just make that next step he'd be a great receiver. We saw flashes a few times last year (I remember one particular catch he had in the corner of the endzone while draped in coverage, forget which game it was). But he disappears way too often.

He's just missing that "it" factor.

I looked on a bears forum and saw what happened a week or so ago. Then I knew Rodriguez was gone. Now he is gone. Fiametta is a former panther. Better in dallas than Charlotte, though. Afaik arashmadou seems to hang around the bears...

Fiametta had his best season when we picked him up from the streets. He got too diva with his season and opted to wait in free agency for a high profile offer. Never played a season like that ever since.

FYI for the non-Chicagoans, Aromasodu was doghoused in Chicago in 2010 after he dropped a wide-open TD pass in the end zone on the first drive of opening day (the Calvin Johnson game) and then told Mike Martz or something on the staff that he didn't want to play in the slot. Those two things certainly didn't help his career.
