Redskins reach agreement with wide receiver Bobby Wade


Another day, another veteran wide receiver has been signed.

In addition to signing Joey Galloway, the team has also agreed to terms with wide receiver Bobby Wade, according to Comcast SportsNet.

Wade, 29, will be playing for his fifth team since entering the league in 2003. He spent last season with the Kansas City Chiefs, starting six games, appearing in 12 games and catching 36 passes for 367 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

His best years came in 2007-08 with Minnesota when he had around 640 yards each season and topped 50 receptions in consecutive years. His signing means the team will have 11 receivers on its roster. The Redskins will likely carry only the top five or so into the season, and both Galloway and Wade will have to really impress in order to stick around beyond training camp.

OMG, the sky is falling! Should be good for practice, we shall see. 6 guys is a lot to cut, so he'd better be prepared to compete.

Competition at every position, like Shanallen said. Not sure how much they guys will push SM89, DT11, MK12. Especially 67 yr old Galloway, but may the best man win!

Another poster alluded to this earlier, I think Moe, but this doesn't look good for the draft class of 2009.

How many more receivers do they plan on inviting to Redskin Park this summer?

I don't get it.

Why not bring in an equal number of offensive lineman instead?

Very strange indeed.

I think we may carry 6 WRs this year (counting Austin).

Being as Moss, DT, and MK are likely the only guaranteed spots, it's gonna be quite a competition with about 8 guys fighting for 3 spots. That includes Marko.

Terrence Austin probably has an inside track as a KR/PR who could also be WR.

But then again, we also have about 15 D-lineman currently on the roster.

I got beeped on the last topic when I posted this so I'm reposting.

Matt terl's twitter page is reporting we signed another lineman for camp.
http://twitter.com/redskinsblog

His name is Trey Jacobs from Liberty U.
Probably just another body, but a guy on extremeskins pasted this report from his pro-day workout in march....

Pro Days
Big man from Liberty shows he can move at pro day

Posted: March 15th, 2010 | Gil Brandt | Tags: 2010 Pro Days, Liberty, Trey Jacobs

With all the talk about 4.30-second 40-yard dashes, 40-inch vertical jumps and 10-foot broad jumps, it’s easy to lose track of what constitutes an outstanding workout for a defensive tackle.

Naturally, the standards are different for players hovering around 300 pounds. Given that, it’s eye-catching what unheralded prospect Trey Jacobs (6-3 3/4, 295 pounds) was able to accomplish at Liberty’s pro day.

The athletic defensive tackle was the most notable of the seven prospects who worked out indoors on FieldTurf for representatives from three teams.

He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.13 and 5.0 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical leap, 8-1 broad jump, a 4.61-second short shuttle, a 7.58-second three-cone drill and did 24 bench press repititions at 225 pounds.

While those numbers won’t put him in a position to rival the quickness, speed and agility of skill position players, they are more than good enough to indicate he has the physical attributes to handle offensive linemen.

– Gil Brandt

Hopefully he can come in and provide some good competition for the other 42 some odd D-linemen we seem to have!

Halak just decided to do his best Patrick Roy imitation. 3 consecutive games of 35 plus saves, you cant do anything about that. Give credit where its due and hope he does the same to the Pens.

Posted by: KingJoffeJoffer | April 29, 2010 10:10 AM | Report abuse

I'm a hockey newb, but maybe you can try to get better shots?

I wonder how many of those saves came on slap-shots from distance that just hit Halak in the gut with no traffic in front of the goal.

Watching the game it seemed like alot of them, and defenders just dig them out.

Kind of like a team jacking up too many 3-pointers with no one under the boards. You could say the opposing team clamped down and played great D on the shooting %, but there's alot of bad shots in there.

Not a hockey expert by any stretch, but was this series really on him??

It seemed that Semin and Green are the postseason goats on the team and that they never showed up.

Backstrom disappeared the last couple games, and Varly didn't exactly stand on his head.

Posted by: p1funk | April 29, 2010 9:56 AM | Report abuse

Generic sports fans will always put the onus on the superstar, no matter how he performs.

Green was beyond awful this series. Semin worked and did some good -- even great things defensively, but couldn't score for the life of him. Fleischman was worthless the entire series. All those 20-goal scorers in the regular season, and only 2 show up for the playoffs.

I thought Backstrom played well the last couple games. Against a team without a flaming hot goalie, he would have had at least 3 assists in the last two games. He was dropping dimes on the doorstep, only to see Semin and the like fan at point-blank range.

God, that was the most depressing moment in recent DC sports history (aside from the true tragedy of ST21). My sports life feels empty...until June.

Now I just get a month and change of anticipation for South Africa.

Shanahan believes that very few offensive linemen can run his scheme. It wouldn't shock me if before he took this job he complied a list of offensive linemen he'd think that'll fit his zone blocking scheme.


I also think he believes he can get it done with just about any ol' group of wide outs and running backs. Seems like his main concern was to get a QB in here capable of winning big and to solidify the offensive line.


Which is what we all wanted, and from what it looks like, is damn near complete.


I've promised that I won't get all girly hyped before September 1st, but things are looking on the up.

I'm a DC sports fan. There isn't too much to believe in these days.

"The Redskins will likely carry only the top five or so into the season,..."

Given the high number of bodies they are dragging in, you have to think that a player like, say, Marko Mitchell might be on the outs if he doesn't become a solid special teams player.

You know like I do they'll keep Moss, Thomas, Kelly, and Austin.

This means it's a thousand guys fighting for two spots.

It also means one or two favs might be sent packing for guys who bring more versitility as backups.

Top of the morning, gl.

I think I get what you're saying, but so many up here get riled over every veteran we sign and say "here we go...same 'ol Skins". I'm not a big fan of Galloway at all, but a one year vet minimum deal isn't the end of the world. He's not slated to be a starter, just around to mentor the young guys and create further competition. No harm in that (same as my stance on Sharper, for the most part).

It's just pitiful that so many fans here are like battered wives...every time this team raises it's hand, some fans cringe like they're about to get hit. It's a new regime--new GM, new coach, no Danny. Let's give 'em time to build this thing and THEN judge.

These WR signings are not an indictment on the 08 draft class. Signing a TO or drafting a receiver with our 4th round draft pick would have been an indictment on the DT and MK. It was only for half a season but Davis has proven himself to be a contributor in this league. Chances are neither Wade nor Galloway make the team, which is why its curious that they bring these guys in. I know they are all about competition but the last two guys dont look like they will provide much. Say want you want about Randle-El as a punt returner, he is a far better receiver than guys they have brought in since his release.

I seriously doubt we roll with that many lineman...in a perfect world (and Madden) you can have a backup for each of the 5 O-line starters, but the reality is that teams often go with only 8 or 9 guys on the 53 man roster and may squirrel away one or two more.

Wade (like Galloway) looks like a good pickup for camp, but not an answer to the shortage of quality WR. Wade has a fumbling history, but also has put up some decent numbers over the years.

Saw this on Wikipedia:

On Week 13 when the Chiefs played the Denver Broncos, Wade had several dropped passes including a pass where Wade was wide open. Wade was seen arguing with Coach Todd Haley after the play.

Did someone open an off season legends camp in Ashburn and fail to tell the WAPO? Was wondering why so many fat old guys are parking their BMWs in the handicapped slots... and figured it must be for some sort of "Pros and Joes" gathering.

More to the point, is there a limit to how many players a team can carry on its roster in the off-season?

I get the impression that the Skins are approaching triple-digits... which could be good for the jersey sales, I guess -- but must be overcommitting on available locker space.

shut you mouth essay... normal preparations leading up to the NFL season has nothing to do with the amount of "suck" area pro and college teams have produced over the years.

Even when Sundays come around for real you can't really expect the 'skins to contend for a bowl, do you? It'll be nice if they can, no doubt. But I'd be happy with a shot at the division this coming season.


And Sunday is gameday, tell 'em so, Diesel44. He'll be the one with the faded replica Tony Banks jersey, a 'The Hogs' sash, and a piglet nose.

Not signing L Foote is what's really bothered me.

I know the FO had a plan for spending money on vets, but Foote would've provided presence and experience as the team changed it's scheme.

We could use a solid vet linebacker and rt.

Hopefully, some team releases or is willing to do a "Jason Campbell--RFA" deal where they trade a decent player for not that much in return.

Such a deal might make sense, especially if a solid vet olb/ilb comes back in return.

That's crazy if Bradford will be expecting 50 mil guaranteed. The NFL needs to cut the crap and adopt a rookie pay scale.

If they keep this up, they're going to "upfront money guaranteed" themselves right into debt and eventually go the way of the USFL...

I'd be cool with T Williams getting about 18-20 guaranteed.

Former Redskins first round pick Rod Gardner, is attempting to revive his career after flaming out with the Redskins, and then briefly with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gardner who was drafted in the first round, had 1 season in which he went over 1000 yards receiving, was known more as struggling with immaturity, than anything else.

Jason Campbell wants to take the Raiders to the next level

Well, the level of mediocrity is looking pretty darn good if you are a Raider fan these days. If Jason Campbell plays up to his fullest potential, he could very well take his team to that level. Al Davis just peed his pants. Not because he excited about Campbell, but because he just couldn’t make it the that private Raider bathroom. Here is what Campbell said to ESPN: “I talked to [Al] Davis, and he… wants me to help their team to a new level.”

"Being as Moss, DT, and MK are likely the only guaranteed spots, it's gonna be quite a competition with about 8 guys fighting for 3 spots. That includes Marko."

No one, not even the aging, injury prone Moss, should be guaranteed anything with this team. Certainly not Thomas or Kelly, who have yet to produce consistently.

So who's the blame for this attitude from the player?

The agent?

The owners?

The league as countless college football boys watch the draft every spring thinking "Hit the lottery!!" while fanbases argue about need and busts and best player availiable?

I'd say all of the above.

The owners and players union should follow the NBA's lead an establish a solid rookie pay scale and method by which 3-4 year vets can get re-upped and make nice coin.

It's like what Prop Joe says in "The Wire": "We can all get paid if we work together..."

Not funny Greg...that's still raw. We need a couple more years before we can actually laugh at that.

I'll tell you what IS funny...the time Gardner got his car stolen and it was left in front of FedEx Field with no wheels on it. Sort of poetic justice for a guy who routinely took a pass on film study for the D.C. nightlife...

A repost-- Art Monk to the Sticks at the end of last season. Danny hasn't posted any new material since the draft and the McNabb trade.

What gives?

Is it just me or is anyone else concerned that we are one twisted knee away from Stephon Heyer again. Or a 7th round rookie. We don't need 10 Wr in camp. We need 10 Tackles in camp.

Older and slower WR's?

That's just great thinking.

Now the QB needs even more time provided by OL they aren't signing to throw to older and slower WR's.

Yes, great thinking. That will work.

The Redskins will likely carry only the top five or so into the season, and both Galloway and Wade will have to really impress in order to stick around beyond training camp.

Beyond training camp?? My guess is that some of these guys won't even make it TO training camp. I don't think that they're going to allot over 1/8 of their 80-player max roster to one position (or two, WR and FL, if you want to get technical about it).

I guess with four quarterbacks they need some cannon fodder receivers to throw around to, but why not go after Alan Faneca? The Jets cut him, and he's only 33. I don't get it.

I think the signings were more directed at Santana Moss who Shanny might not be as high on as people think. Galloway is 37 but has always been a burner. Wade is nothing more than a possession receiver. Santana is 31 and has started to show his age. I'm not so sure that he'll be on the roster beyond this year. He unfortunately wasted his prime years in Gibbs' antiquated offense and the Zorn regime.

For those of you losing it about the decisions this front office is making, remember where we are coming from:

Washington Redskins 2007 traft

1st round-Laron Landry
2nd round-traded in 2006 with 2006 2nd round pick to move up to pick up Rocky McIntosh
3rd round-traded for TJ Duckett
4th round-traded for Brandon Llyod
5th round-Dallas Sartz
6th round-HB Blades

Not exactly. The Old Man disdained draft picks, trading them for veterans. Big difference, mortaging the future to "win now". That method caught up with the franchise in the latter 70s.

Question for Steptoe 2: Sign T.O.? Why? Don't get me wrong — we all would like a self-absorbed malcontent to come in and screw with any lingering locker room chemistry, especially if he could come up with perhaps a long-running beef with the starting quarterback.

But do you really think this team is an aging diva with declining skills away from being competitive?

Offensive linemen!

Ok Shanahan and Allen supposed to know what there doing. Do you still thank that.

A 38 old reciever who could not stay healthy and a Jouneyman reciver.
I hate to say it but T.O. is looking real good about now.

Yep, when he got Oakly, Laettner, Stackhouse, and about 5 other 30+ players to miss the playoffs with him.

I'm sorry, I didn't see any washed up ex other teams players in the recent Super Bowl. Didn't see one washed up old QB or RB's or WR's either. And will not see any in any upcoming SB's either ... Dan, did you read that?
