New Jaguar Scouting Report: Todd Wade

The Jaguars made another roster move today by placing guard Maurice Williams on the injured reserve and signing offensive tackle Todd Wade.

Todd Wade is a large 6'8", 315 lb. right tackle, who is an eight-year league veteran. The 31-year old Wade began his career as a second-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins (2000), and played in Miami from his rookie season until 2003. Wade's career then took him to Houston where he played against the Jaguars as a member of the Texans until 2006, when he signed as a free agent with the Washington Redskins. Wade was with Washington from 2006 until late August, when he was released. In his career, Wade has started 96 of his 99 career games.

To get a scouting report on Wade, JagNation asked Warpath Insider Publisher George Lafoon, who had this to say—

I think he is about done physically. Also, the Redskins tried to move him to left guard and he failed miserably and they ended up trading for Pete Kendall. Of course, this is the Redskins, so grain of salt needed. I would say he makes solid depth, but I don't think he can be counted on to start a full season.

The report on Wade is about what you would expect from a free agent that you pick up off the street in September. With three-fifths of the Jaguars starting offensive line down, and two-fifths down for the season, Jacksonville is scrambling for bodies. It's a low-risk, low-reward maneuver by signing Wade, being that he likely didn't receive much money, and his salary isn't guaranteed being that he wasn't on the opening week's roster.
