Christian Wade: Waived by Buffalo
Wade was waived by Buffalo on Friday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Wade spent back-to-back seasons on Buffalo's practice squad and appeared to have a chance to make the Bills' initial 53-man roster ahead of the 2021 campaign before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. The undrafted running back didn't garner an injury designation during his release, so he's presumably healthy heading into the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less

Christian Wade: Sticks on practice squad

Bills' Christian Wade: Waived by Buffalo
Wade (quadriceps) did not make it through Saturday's cut-down, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The former rugby star from Great Britain was a demon in preseason games last season and ultimately ended up on the practice squad, but with the Bills set at the top of the running back depth chart with Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, the team needs pass catchers and special teams guys to fill out the rest of the group, not a hard-running prospect. We imagine the Bills would love to get Wade on the practice squad again, where he's eligible to come back to the roster as the Bills' designated international player if he clears waivers....

Bills' Christian Wade: Quad issue surfaces
Wade missed practice Monday due to a quadriceps injury, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
The former rugby star is trying to land a spot through the NFL's international program, but the team may end up being just too deep at running back unless Wade can prove he can also help on special teams. He'll need the injury to be a minor one to have a truer shot at making his case.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Christian Wade: Eyes on roster spot
Wade, who served on the Bills' practice squad last season, is eager to show he's worthy of a spot on team's 53-man roster for 2020, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. "I didn't really realize how far I've come, really, until we started the virtual offseason up again," the running back said recently. "Just in terms of how much I understand, when I'm watching film, it's slowed down a bit more. I can actually decipher what's going on and what we're trying to achieve."
Wade is not your average NFL player. He's a former British rugby star whom the Bills feel has the skill set that might translate to NFL play. He showed immediate glimpses of this during the 2019 preseason, though he ultimately ended up on the practice squad as an exempt international player. The Bills are already set at the top two running back spots with Devin Singletary and rookie third-rounder Zack Moss, but after that Wade should get a fair shake. Assuming no one else enters the mix, that puts Wade up against T.J. Yeldon, Taiwan Jones and Antonio Williams for what will likely be two more roster spots. The Bills have the option to keep Wade as an exempt practice squad member once again, but the 28-year-old has bigger sights the second time around.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Christian Wade: In Buffalo's plans
Wade was one of 10 players signed from the practice squad to a reserve/future contract by the Bills on Monday, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
There are dozens and dozens of these signings around the NFL this time of year, but Wade's is one of the few that bears watching. He's a star rugby player from the United Kingdom that showed some eye-popping flashes during the preseason but just wasn't polished enough for the Bills to keep him on the active roster, so he worked on the practice squad all season as an exempt player. With Frank Gore looking every bit of his 36 years of age down the stretch, Wade may have a legit shot to earn the No. 2 or No. 3 spot behind Devin Singletary. The Bills also signed quarterback Davis Webb, cornerback Cam Lewis, tight end Nate Becker, wide receiver Nick Easley, linebacker Tyrel Dodson, wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, linebacker Del'Shawn Phillips, offensive tackle Victor Salako and defensive end Jonathan Woodard to reserve/future contracts Monday....
