Filling The Slot

Devin Aromashodu
I’ve been rooting for Aroma to make this club because he played for my all-time favorite college football team: the 2004 undefeated Auburn Tigers.  (That team also featured Cadillac Williams, Ronnie Brown, Jason Campbell, Kenny Irons and Carlos Rogers…and was not allowed to play for a national title.)  Aroma has become a near-lock to make the roster, developing a quick rapport with Jay Cutler and impressing the coaching staff.  Saturday night should be an opportunity for him to cement his role in the offense.

Rashied Davis
I don’t think I’ve ever read a stranger column than Mike Mulligan’s plea for Rashied Davis to make the Bears roster.  I understand Davis’ story is an inspirational one but to write such a column without mention of the player’s inability to hold onto footballs thrown directly into his hands reeks of  “I don’t wanna lose a locker room source”.  I also think the column is all-for-naught as I fully expect Rash to be on the roster.  To quote Ron Turner, ‘We have a real good feel for where he is and what he can do. We know him.”
