When the Washington Redskins acquired Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan in free agency, wide receiver Jabar Gaffney was put on the back burner even though he led the team in receiving last year.
It comes as no surprise then that the Skins’ released Gaffney Tuesday morning. Gaffney had 68 receptions for 948 yards, and 5 touchdowns in 2011. Prior to that, he was in Denver for two seasons with 54 and 65 reception seasons, respectfully.
There’s no doubt that Gaffney won’t have trouble finding a job, but I really think the Broncos should sign him again.
Peyton Manning has all of these great young receivers, but aside from Brandon Stokley, there isn’t another veteran set of hands on the team that can really make a difference.
I would be willing to bet that Gaffney would take a pay cut to catch balls from the best in the game and have a shot at winning a Super Bowl ring in the near future.
Bring back Gaff! Bring back Gaff!
