Christian Wade’s NFL dream could be over already…

Former Wasps and England rugby winger Christian Wade has missed out on a place in the Buffalo Bills team for the 2019 NFL season.

Wade, 28, was one of 31 players cut by the Bills as they finalised their 53-player roster.

The running back quit rugby union in October 2018 to pursue an NFL career,joining the Bills in April.

He impressed in pre-season, scoring a sensational 65-yard touchdown with his first carry on his debut.

If Wade, who joined the NFL as part of the International Player Pathway programme which allowed him to train the Bills since July, is not signed onto another team’s roster then he could rejoin Buffalo’s 10-man practice squad, which is expected to happen.

That means Wade would continue to train with the Bills and would be eligible to play for them or join another NFL team.

Another option for the former British and Irish Lion could be to be the Bills’ exempt 11th member, where he would be restricted to only train with the team and could not sign for another NFL franchise.
