The Vikings have released WR Bobby Wade and filling his place on the roster will be WR Greg Lewis.
Wade led the Vikings in receptions the past 2 seasons, but a combination of factors, including the addition of Percy Harvin, likely led to his release today. With prior stints in both Chicago and Tennessee, Wade may sign with either franchise after Week 1.
Lewis joins the Vikings after stints with both the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. He joined the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2003 and spent 6 seasons there. In his time with the Eagles, where he spent 3 years (2003-3005) with Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress while Childress was the offensive coordinator there, Lewis played in 90 games, catching 127 passes for 1,699 yards and 7 TDs.
This past March, Lewis was acquired via trade along with a 2010 7th round draft pick by the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2009 5th-round draft pick. New England later released him.
Lewis joins a WR group that includes Bernard Berrian, Percy Harvin, Jaymar Johnson, Darius Reynaud and Sidney Rice.
