Redskins Release Last Years Leading Pass Catcher – WR Jabar Gaffney

As teams say hello to their rookies and undrafted free agents, it means the end for others. Today the Redskins said “so long” to a veteran, as they released veteran pass catcher Jabar Gaffney, their leading receiver last season.

Gaffney made 68 catches for 947 yards and five touchdowns in 2011, setting career highs in receptions and yardage and matching a career high in TD catches. He started 15 games in 2011.

Washington signed free agents Pierre Garcon and Joshua Morgan in free agency, and already had five other holdovers at wide receiver.

The 31-year-old Gaffney has played 10 NFL seasons, making 443 catches for 5,622 yards and 24 touchdowns. He previously played with Houston, New England and Denver.

    The last straw was his refusal to give up #10.

    plus five UFA’s

    I’ll make a prediction. LANCE LEWIS East Carolina UFA bumps someone off this team. Without speed, but talented as a possession receiver.
