The Chicago Bears bring back Devin Aromashodu, and make a number of moves

New, comments

The Chicago Bears have been very active the last two days. We'll run down the recent roster moves right now...

Yesterday the Chicago Bears traded former Jerry Angelo #1 draft pick, Gabe Carimi, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a sixth round draft pick. As Kev so eloquently put it in his Ten Thoughts post, "The team values a sixth-round pick higher than his chances of being one of the top 8 or nine linemen. If he goes to Tampa and plays well, it doesn't mean he would in Chicago."

Earlier today they released a member of Phil Emery's first Chicago draft class, when they sprung former 4th rounder Evan Rodriguez because of his continued off field issues. Kev ran down the accompanying fullback signing of Tony Fiametta in that article.

Those moves weren't all the Bears have done, as announced via Twitter;

Bears fans should be familiar with Devin Aromashodu, after he had those 4 solid games back in 2009, he was thought to be the "big tagert" that Jay Cutler and the Bears offense needed. He wasn't, and he ended up in Minnesota, which is where bad Bear receivers go to die.

Not exactly sure why the Bears would rather see if D.A. has anything left in the tank, rather than roll the dice with a young player, but odds are slim to none he sticks around on the final 53.

Chicago is Jerrell Jackson's third team, and he looks to be a long shot as well.

What do you think of the Bears' move the last couple days?
