We have our first completed NFL trade since the league got back to business this week. It involves the Washington Redskins. But it does not involve Donovan McNabb.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Broncos have traded wide receiver Jabar Gaffney to the Redskins in exchange for defensive end Jeremy Jarmon.
Gaffney played in all 16 games for the Broncos last season and started 11, catching 65 passes for 875 yards. His acquisition shows once again that the Redskins considered upgrading the receiver position their top priority: It’s the third move the Redskins have made at the position, following the signings of Santana Moss and Donte Stallworth.
Jarmon joined the Redskins as a third-round pick in the 2009 supplemental draft. In two seasons he played in 16 games, starting one and recording 0.5 sacks.
