Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson, who tweeted earlier this week his frustration that the Vikings haven't tried hard to re-sign him, got his wish.

The team is bringing him back on a one-year deal.

Our own Sid Hartman called minutes ago to report the transaction. The contract is worth $2 million.

Henderson started last season alongside his brother, middle linebacker E.J. Henderson, and Chad Greenway.

Update: The team also has reached a one-year deal with receiver Devin Aromashodu. Much like the agreement with Erin, this deal makes sense for the team and the player.

The Vikings can't turn over their entire non-Percy Harvin receiving corp in one year. So they're going to need bodies there. Aromashodu, 27, showed glimpses of being a downfield threat in the Vikings' offense. He caught only 26 passes, but averaged 18 yards per catch with a 34-yard touchdown and a long catch of 60 yards.

Meanwhile, former Ravens cornerback Chris Carr left Winter Park without a contract offer.
