Vikings release WR Bobby Wade

St. Paul Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

The Minnesota Vikings have released veteran wide receiver Bobby Wade, the team's leading receiver the last two years, according to his agent, Jerome Stanley.

"You're defined by your behavior and what you do and not what you say," Stanley said. "I'll let you connect the dots."

Asked if he were referring to Vikings coach Brad Childress, Stanley said, "Wherever the decision came from. And we already know where it came from, so there it is."

Last week, Wade had agreed to cut his base salary in half to about $1.5 million.

The team is expected to fill his spot by reuniting Vikings coach Childress with former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Greg Lewis, according to a person close to the situation. Lewis, 29, is at Winter Park today and expected to practice.
