More time for Aromashodu?

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Bears receiver Devin Aromashodu has only one reception on the season.

If it were up to Jay Cutler, that number would be much higher.

"Yeah, I'd like to see him (play more)," Cutler said Wednesday at Halas Hall. "He's a different type of receiver for us, a little bit taller. He still has the speed, he just presents a different target for me. [It would be nice] if we can sprinkle him in, and keep building his confidence. We don't want to overload him, but to get him in there in different situations, and get him up the seams or some back shoulder stuff -- that would be good."

Cutler began his public support of Aromashodu back in training camp, and the wide out responded by putting together an impressive preseason. Since then, Aromashodu has been active for three games in 2009 -- Atlanta, Cincinnati and San Francisco -- contributing almost exclusively on special teams.
