Redskins Acquire Gaffney, Trade Jarmon

Posted Jul 27, 2011

The Redskins have completed a trade with the Denver Broncos, acquiring wide receiver Jabar Gaffney for defensive end Jaremy Jarmon.


The Redskins have completed a trade with the Denver Broncos, acquiring wide receiver Jabar Gaffney for defensive end Jeremy Jarmon.

The move comes as a mild surprise. The Redskins clearly intend to upgrade their wide receiver corps this offseason, and Gaffney adds a quality veteran to the mix.

The price tag of Jarmon, a young defensive end, may be high, but he did not seem to fit in the Redskins' 3-4 scheme.

Gaffney said he learned about the trade from Broncos head coach John Fox after he had reported to the team facility on Wednesday.

"It was right before we did the conditioning test," Gaffney told Washington, D.C., reporters via conference call. "It shocked me. I didn't have any clue that it was going to happen. I guess Coach [Mike] Shanahan had me in his sights and they made a deal happen."

He added: "It feels good to be wanted."

Gaffney said he would try to get up to speed with the Redskins' offense and personnel, adding that he would "need to get to know a lot more about" quarterback John Beck.

"Learning a new system is part of the NFL and I've been around a while," he said. "I'll just come in there, get in the system and just try to pick it up as fast as I can."

Gaffney, 30, enjoyed the two best statistical seasons of his nine-year career over the last two campaigns in Denver.

In 2010, Gaffney set career highs by registering 65 catches for 875 yards. That followed a 2009 season in which he caught 54 passes for 732 yards.

Prior to joining the Broncos, the 6-2, 200-pound Gaffney played three seasons in New England. Gaffney played in 43 games, with 20 starts, in his stint in New England. In 2007, the season the Patriots finished with a perfect 16-0 record, he played in all 16 games, with seven starts, and established a career high five touchdown catches.

Gaffney spent the first four seasons of his career with the Houston Texans. From 2002-05, he played in 64 games, with 50 starts, and caught 171 passes for 2,009 yards and seven touchdowns.

Since being selected in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft by Houston, Gaffney has played 139 games, with 88 starts, and recorded 375 receptions for 4,675 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Gaffney attended the University of Florida, where he won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s best receiver as a sophomore before entering the NFL Draft. He played for former Redskins head coach Steve Spurrier at Florida.

He is a native of Jacksonville, Fla.

Jarmon was selected by the Redskins in the third round of the 2009 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Overall, he played in 16 games for the Redskins.

Last season, Jarmon returned from a 2009 knee ligament injury but saw limited playing time. He played in five games and posted six tackles and a half-sack.
