Redskins Release 2011 Leading Receiver Jabar Gaffney

Tuesday May 1st, 2012

The Washington Redskins have released wide receiver Jabar Gaffney, according to a tweet from Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports.

Gaffney, 31, was the Redskins’ leading receiver in 2011, hauling in a career high 68 passes for 947 yards and five touchdowns. It had been rumored that Washington was attempting to trade the wide-out, but had been unsuccessful.

The Redskins signed multiple wide receivers this offseason including Josh Morgan and Pierre Garcon, which made Gaffney expendable.
