    MANKATO — The Minnesota Vikings enter this season with a receiving corps that is relatively inexperienced and largely unproven.....

    Nice read Singer.

    I didn't realize how small 5'10" was until I say him standing with the other beasts we have for WR's.

    He sure seems to be a good fit in this scheme even though his history doesn't support my assumption.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    As long as he can get open, and convert third downs, he'll be a good offseason aquisition. His leadership of our young guys is another big plus. I look forward to seeing him Sidney and T-Will, as our starters. Good stuff Singer.

    His 58 NFL games easily the most of Vikings wideouts

    Bobby Wade is the closest thing to a veteran leader the Vikings have among their wide receivers, but he too is learning the offense.

    MANKATO —
    He’s 26 years old and newcomer Bobby Wade is already being viewed as the “wise old veteran” of the Vikings’ receiving corps...

    Re: Wade the "old hand" of receiving corps

    Being down here in Tucson, AZ., I watched Bobby here as a
    U of A Wildcat.
    He was always a fan fave down here.
    And a big thing about him is that he was a good leader on and off the field.
    I've kept up with him after he made the jump to the NFL.
    Not outstanding #'s, but I know he'll be there when T-Jack is looking for him.
