Chiefs Pick Up Bobby Wade

The Kansas City Chiefs, desperate for receiving help, have signed former Viking Bobby Wade.

Wade joins a Chiefs receiving corps that drops off considerably after the #1 guy, Dwayne Bowe.  He gives them a decent little slot receiver with okay hands and a little shiftiness but not a whole lot of explosive downfield potential.

He can also be used as a return man, if you don’t mind the occasional muff.

Wade was of course dumped in somewhat controversial fashion by the Vikings.  He was originally slated to be cut, but agreed to restructure his contract, taking half his original $3 million salary for the year.  Less than a week later, the Vikes reneged on the deal, kicking Wade to the curb and replacing him with Greg Lewis.

There is as yet no proof to back up many people’s belief that Brett Favre played a direct role in Wade’s release.
