Jabar goes bye-bye

By Mark Pierce

31 year old receiver Jabar Gaffney has been released by the Washington Redskins. Gaffney, a ten year veteran, led the team in receiving yards last season.

According to Mike Jones at the Washington Post, the Redskins informed Gaffney last month he didn’t need to report for their offseason conditioning program, and that they planned to either trade or release him this offseason because he no longer figured in their plans.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan last week said “I believe I owe it to him to give him a chance to look around the league and check his options.”

Roster and age calculus doomed Gaffney as a member of the ‘Skins this year. We wish him well.

About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
