Redskins sign veteran WR Bobby Wade
Joey Galloway isn’t the only veteran wide receiver that the Washington Redskins have added to the fold.
They also signed Bobby Wade, according to Comcast Sportsnet Washington, and he becomes a candidate to be a slot receiver in Mike Shanahan’s offense and the Redskins could also consider Wade for a role as a punt returner.
Wade spent last season with the Kansas City Chiefs where he reunited with coach Todd Haley, who was the Bears wide receivers coach when Wade was drafted in the fifth round out of Arizona in 2003. He made six starts and caught 36 passes for 367 yards and two touchdowns.
Wade was a solid starter for the Minnesota Vikings for two seasons but became expendable after they drafted Percy Harvin last season. He’s also made a stop with the Tennessee Titans.
The Redskins now have 10 wide receivers on their roster and the competition should be strong. They really need former second-round picks Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly to step forward.
