Wade made a couple of good plays in pre-season games and scored a touchdown with his first ever touch of a football, yet still failed to make the 53-man roster for the 2019 season.

Wade is still guaranteed a spot in the Buffalo Bills 10-man practice squad for another year, allowing him to train for the 2020 roster while he can still be drafted in by another team this year.
