ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have acquired receiver Jabar Gaffney from the Denver Broncos in exchange for defensive end Jeremy Jarmon.
The 30-year-old Gaffney has 375 receptions over nine NFL seasons with Houston, New England and Denver. He had 65 catches for 875 yards and two touchdowns last year.
He joins a Redskins receiving corps that will include Santana Moss, Anthony Armstrong and Donte' Stallworth. Moss is re-signing with the team, and Stallworth agreed to a deal Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Jarmon had trouble finding a niche during his two seasons with the Redskins. He was a bad fit for the 3-4 defense installed by defensive coordinator Jim Haslett last season.
