Adam Schefter is reporting that the Denver Broncos have traded Jabar Gaffney to the Washington Redskins for DE Jeremy Jarmon. Jarmon is entering his 3rd NFL season and has played in 15 games over that stretch, although he has only started a single time.
Just minutes after the trade became public, John Elway tweeted the following:
“We have acquired DT Jeremy Jarmon from Washington in exchange for WR Jabar Gaffney. Jeremy is an athletic defensive lineman with great versatility. We are looking forward to having him as Bronco.”
In other news the Carolina Panthers have re-signed DeAngelo Williams to a massive 5-year $43-million deal. Hopefully Denver will use some of the money they had pegged for Williams on DT Brandon MeBane.
