    Vikings cut Wade..add Lewis..

    Associated Press


    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have released wide receiver Bobby Wade, who led the team in receptions the past two years, and replaced him with free agent Greg Lewis.

    Reached by phone Thursday, Wade declined to immediately comment.

    Bobby Wade, WR

    2008 Statistics
    Games/Starts: 16/14
    Catches: 53
    Yards: 645
    Touchdowns: 2

    With first-round draft pick Percy Harvin joining the team, the Vikings had fewer opportunities for Wade, a six-year NFL veteran.

    Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice are the other two receivers atop the depth chart heading into Sunday's opener at Cleveland. Berrian has been slowed by a hamstring injury.

    Wade routinely drew praise from coach Brad Childress and he made his share of clutch catches over the middle. Wade had 53 receptions for 645 yards and two touchdowns last season, after recording 647 yards and three scores the year before.

    Lewis was let go by New England this week. He was with the Philadelphia Eagles during Childress's last three seasons there as offensive coordinator and traded to the Patriots in March for two low-round draft picks.

    have no idea how much cap we have left,but it seems like its not much..suppose we have enough to pick up Wade...

    do you think it would be something we should do?


    has played in a WCO ...a veteran but not too old,seems to have decent hands to me..we are thin at the position...id prefer Reggie Brown but this move may be more realistic..

    Certainly would be worth a look.
