Is ex-Wildcat Wade on bubble with Vikings?

The emergence of rookie Percy Harvin jeopardizes Wade's future in Minnesota

Veteran receiver Bobby Wade, a former UA Wildcat, could soon be looking for his fourth NFL team.

The emergence of rookie Percy Harvin in the Minnesota Viking's "Wildcat" formation has led some to think Wade could be on his way out.

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevel told the Minneapolis StarTribune that because of Harvin's talents, they have been able to expand their playbook by 10 to 20 plays.

"I feel like Bevell is going to really to take advantage of mismatches and manipulate this offense to exploit defenses," tight end Visanthe Shiancoe told Chip Scoggins.

Wade, a fifth-round pick out of Arizona, was released during his third season with the Bears.  He was picked up by Tennessee, then signed a free-agent deal with the Vikings in 2007.
