    Vikings receiver Wade says system matches his skills

    More about receivers and draft choices at: http://www.startribune.com/510/story/1088966.html

    Bobby Wade hasn't received a playbook from the Vikings yet, but the newly signed receiver has started familiarizing himself with the team's offense during the offseason workout program that started March 19.

    "I got some basic stuff with formations, terminology and things like that," Wade said. "A lot of concepts will be the same."

    Wade, who joins tight end Visanthe Shiancoe and linebacker Vinny Ciurciu as the Vikings' free-agent signees, received a five-year, $15 million contract after catching 33 passes for 461 yards and two touchdowns last season with Tennessee.

    So far quarterback Tarvaris Jackson likes what he sees from his new teammate.

    "He's kind of taking over as a No. 1 guy, being a leader," Jackson said. "He's a good guy. He's around the locker room talking to everybody. Just a cool guy. ... As far as ability goes, he's good."

    That must mean he drops passes, or he knows how to kick field goals.

    Good, at least the rest of the
    team likes him, thats a start, lol. Now lets see what he can do on the field. I'm excited to watch him play, I hope he will turn out to be another "Chestor Taylor" player. The titans said that they lost a play maker in him, I think he will surprise many.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    hmm, I shouldn't really say "who cares," should say something more like "what he does on the field matters more." there, that sounds better.

    Wade: My skills match the Vikings system because I can run pass patterns well and catch the football before it hits the ground.


    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    Catching the friggin ball is a good start. Gettin the project QB's attention is also good. Matching the aerial system of attack, as it was last year, not good enough for me. I guess he is our number 1 (sigh).
