Apparently, there’s a player at the Patriots’ minicamp who looks a lot like receiver Jabar Gaffney.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports Gaffney is present at the minicamp.  A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Gaffney isn’t.

The confusion is understandable.  Per Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, several non-roster players are participating at the minicamp, but their identities aren’t immediately known.

An original draft pick of thew Texans in 2002, Gaffney spent three seasons with the Patriots, from 2006 through 2008.  In 2012, he appeared in three games with the Dolphins.
