Report: Redskins Release Jabar Gaffney

Report: Redskins Release Jabar Gaffney

NFL.com reporter Steve Wyche is reporting that the Redskins have released WR Jabar Gaffney.  

The news comes just a few weeks after Gaffney said that he thought the Redskins were "trying to trade" him and had a major meltdown on Twitter.

Gaffney was the team's leading receiver last year, catching 68 passes for 947 yards and 5 touchdowns.

What do you think about the move?

Sound off below.

Congratulations to the winner of our Facebook Photo Caption Contest, Charlene Woods. Did you watch the Super Bowl?

This photo (provided by US Presswire) is of NY Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw running for a touchdown with :57 left on the clock.

The theory is that the New England Patriot allowed the Giants to score the touchdown, so they could get the ball back with one timeout and enough time to make a final drive. The Giants ended up winning Super Bowl XLVI 21-17.

Some things are just fundamental. And fundamentals are what make some things meaningful. An inner-city grade-school student-athlete being provided with the necessary equipment to shine not only in the classroom, but on the field, is something the nonprofit DC SCORES takes pride in and will go to great lengths to fulfill.

Throughout our service here in the nation’s capitol we’ve been fortunate to provide for amazing students, in no less than amazing fashions.

Stemming from last year, the ever-so-familiar Groupon DC has extended its reach to DC SCORES for a cause bigger than just selling soccer jerseys. Wonderful contributors and supporters of DC SCORES' mission have yet another opportunity to buy into a child’s dream and contribute to one of more than 800 poet-athlete’s not-so-typical youth-hood in DC.
