After spending less than one year with the Kansas City Chiefs, WR Bobby Wade has found a new team. CSN Washington is reporting that Wade has signed with the Redskins.
Wade, 29, played 12 games for Kansas City last year.
Wade has played for the Bears, Titans, Vikings and Chiefs during his eight-year NFL career. Last season in Kansas City he grabbed 36 receptions for 367 yards and two touchdowns.
The Redskins currently have 10 receivers on the roster and have generally kept only five or six on the 53-man roster. Santana Moss, Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly are likely locks, seventh-round pick Terrence Austin will get a chance to make the team as a return specialist and second-year player Marko Mitchell flashed last preseason and spent the entire year on the active roster.
Last season he was given more than his fair share of opportunities and couldn’t top his Week 2 debut of 72 yards
receiving. Todd Haley also gave him a shot on special teams returning punts, but Wade averaged a very pedestrian 7.6 yards per return.
With Joey Galloway also now in the fold for the Redskins, Wade has a long road ahead as he tries to break camp in Washington.
