The Minnesota Vikings have released wide receiver Bobby Wade, who led the team in receptions the past two years.
Wade confirmed Thursday he has been let go, but declined comment.
With first-round draft pick Percy Harvin joining the team, the Vikings had fewer opportunities for Wade. He is starting his seventh year in the NFL.
Bernard Berrian and Sidney Rice are the other two receivers atop the depth chart heading into Sunday's opener at Cleveland. Berrian has been slowed by a hamstring injury.
Wade routinely drew praise from coach Brad Childress and he made his share of clutch catches over the middle. Wade had 53 receptions for 645 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Leading receiver on a team who suddenly became Receiver heavy in the off-season. Good at making clutch catches over the middle. Experienced, but not necessarily old.
Any chance Pioli is making a call?
