EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The second week of free agency has been an active one for the Minnesota Vikings and theysigned a wide receiver on Friday evening. Minnesota reportedly re-signed Devin Aromashodu to a one-year deal Friday. Aromashodu, 27, had 26 catches for 468 yards and a touchdown last season for Minnesota and came on at the end of the season after injuries hit the team's depth. Aromashodu, signed last offseason from the Chicago Bears, had 17 catches in the final five weeks of the season. He entered unrestricted free agency last week and the Vikings stayed away from some of the high-profile receivers last week as several players were signed to rich, multi-year deals. Aromashodu will have the chance to come in as Minnesota's No. 3 or No. 4 receiver next season, already familiar with the team's offense. Percy Harvin had his best season as a pro last year, and Michael Jenkins will be back following knee surgery during last season. Emmanuel Arceneaux, Stephen Burton, Kerry Taylor and Kris Adams are also on the roster. Minnesota also could look to shore up the position in next month's draft. Aromashodu is the type of deep threat the Vikings need to stretch the field and take pressure off of Harvin, and tight ends Kyle Rudolph and John Carlson. The six-year pro averaged 18.0 yards per catch last season. Earlier Friday, Minnesota also re-signed linebacker Erin Henderson to a reported one-year, 2 million contract. After a slow opening week to free agency when the Vikings only signed Carlson and retained defensive tackle Letroy Guion, this week has seen the team sign a pair of running backs (Lex Hilliard and Jerome Felton) and an offensive tackle (Geoff Schwartz). Minnesota has re-signed four of its own players, bringing back Aromashodu, Henderson, Guion and defensive tackle Fred Evans. Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Chris Carr was reportedly in for a visit late this week, but left Friday without a deal. Follow Brian Hall on Twitter.
