Default Jabar Gaffney says the Redskins are trying to trade him

Wide receiver Jabar Gaffney led the Redskins in most receiving categories last season, but he says the team doesn’t want him back in 2012.

In an interview with Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Radio on Wednesday, Gaffney said that he wants to remain with the team. The feeling doesn’t seem to be mutual as Gaffney said that Mike and Kyle Shanahan told him he didn’t need to report to work for the first two weeks of the offseason program. That timeframe would take him through the end of the draft, a period that would indicate what the Redskins are looking for in a deal.

Yup, not surprised. It was mentioned back when they signed those other WR's early in FA that Gaffney would likely be the odd man out. You'd think they'd just release him since there's he's not likely to bring much, if any, comp.

god, the thing I miss about shanny is that he will trade gaffney to some team for a 2nd and 7th round pick. Or trade gaffney to the rams for steven jackson or something.

Shanny was the master of trading. He could always get retarded value from trading away avg to scrub type wr.

Cheated on by his ho, then dumped by his team. Must be a rough year for Gaffney.

It would be awesome if after throwing a fit to the media, he finds out Shanahan was doing his usual and not requiring vets to do all offseason activities.

if i could hire anyone on the planet to be my agent in any contract signing, i would want Shanahan. his trades always ended up as major lopsided deals, where we literally laughed at our trade partners.

If only the Giants hired idiot team doctors like us, we could've had freaking Justin Tuck entering his prime for an old MLB that couldn't turn his head.

He was more productive than Santana Moss and cheaper...not sure why they wouldn't dump him instead.

Most of the "idiot" trades were with the Redskins, weren't they?

It's not like Shanahan pulled the wool over EVERYONE's eyes in trades.....just Dan Snyder.

I know he pulled off trades with other teams. I'm just saying the only team I remember "raping" in trades was Washington.....it was the Champ/Portis trade....and I thought one other.

The other trades with other teams, I remember as being fair....I could be wrong.

Nah, we signed nikko koutiveoudes as a FA, not in a trade. Think we got a 5 and 7 for colbert or something.

When some of you get tired of your lips being affixed to Shannys ass crack, go back and list all those great FA signings that he brought us.... Like Ihop and Dale Carter.

What ever shanny did real good, he had something else he did really piss poor.

Ahhh but this is not about that. This is about gaffney being traded by shanny and shannys history of robbing teams stupid for players, esp. when it comes to wide receivers.

Maybe you and lonestar should go sulk in the corner about how much shanny sucks. No one here cares.

Shanny was gold on trades. though it is funny how most are calling him a fool for the RGIII trade. as good as Shanny is, he's never won properly without having his guy at QB. so RGIII is his guy and any other year goes #1 overall.
