Wade: McNair a “very accepting person”

Vikings WR Bobby Wade is enjoying vacation right now, just a few weeks before training camp commences in Mankato and he and his teammates begin their NFC North title defense in 2009. But there has been something else on his mind aside from vacationing with family and gearing up for another season – the tragic death of friend and former teammate Steve McNair.

“Steve was a stand-up guy,” Wade said. “He was very down to earth and always accepting of others.”

Wade and McNair were teammates in Tennessee during the 2005 season, after the Titans acquired Wade following his release from the Chicago Bears.

“He welcomed me with open arms,” Wade explained. “I came to Tennessee in the middle of the season and Steve welcomed me and immediately made me feel like a longtime member of the team.”
