Christian Wade joins Buffalo Bills in latest step towards National Football League career

Wade joins the Buffalo Bills through the NFL's International Player Pathway Program

After leaving the rugby pitch in a bid to pursue an NFL, Christian Wade has eventually been snapped up by the Buffalo Bills as they try to add "international flavour" to their roster.

He has been training in Florida since December, and while he was not signed by a team out-right, having been placed with the Bills, Wade has a full year to impress with no risk of being dropped.

Wade will be part of the International Player Pathway Program this season, which allows the four franchises in the AFC East to carry an extra player on their practice squads, as long as they are international players from overseas.

He will not be eligible to play for the Bills this season, but the International Player Pathway enables him to train with the club and attempt to win a place on the roster for next season.

The 2019 iPhone 11 lineup featuring a triple camera setup will also be thinner than their 2018 iPhone counterpart. Apple will include the new "A-series" chip, and the phones are also rumoured to come with bigger batteries.

Wade has been identified as a running back by the National Football League club, after scoring 82 tries as a wing for Wasps in the Premiership. He was selected to the prestigious British and Irish Lions squad, the highest honor for a rugby player in the UK.

"With the recent news I'm completely lost for words", said the former Wasps winger. "I've tried to take every moment as it comes and hit it hard". He is a projected running back, as most of his success in rugby came with ball in hand. I'm still learning, still trying to get better, just pushing for the best.

"For me this is another step closer to my dream and what I set out to achieve from the start". This has made that even more apparent. Gray recently signed a new two-year future reserves contract with the Atlanta Falcons, whilst Scotland-Williamson is still part of the program with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
