Default Broncos may try to shop Jabar Gaffney this offseason

Mike Klis of the Denver Post speculates that the Broncos may try to shop Jabar Gaffney this offseason.

The catch is that Klis suggests Denver getting "a fourth-round draft pick," an unrealistic return for a 30-year-old possession receiver. It would make sense to "clear room" for more playing time from Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. They just couldn't get more than a sixth-rounder for Gaffney.
Source: Denver Post


Of course it's just speculation but we do have a good group of young unproven talent although Gaffney is one of our better playmakers

What do you think?

I'd like to see Decker and Thomas get more chances. They are the future.

I agree but can they stay healthy is the question? They don't do us no good on the bench

They've got a logjam at WR right now and I do think Decker can do what Gaff does if he gets enough reps to learn the NFL game. I hate to see J-Gaff go for a 6th rounder, though. Dude provides a veteran presence and is valuable in certain offensive schemes.

Get him to STL for a 4th. He'd be an upgrade to the WR corps there and Josh McD already knows what he can do.

That is an excellent observation! They need WR's in a bad way and Gaff would certainly boost their wr corp

If we only got a 6th, 5th, or maybe a fourth then it's worth it. Otherwise what's the point?

I brought up this idea a while back and think you can probably snag a 3 or 4 for him

It wouldn't be a big loss. Gaffney played in 16 games and I'm pretty sure he started all of them. He ended with 65 catches for 875 yards and 2 TDs. This would not be hard to replace.

Exactly. Plus, this is just more Klis speculation. Wasn't Royal being discussed earlier? We have a nice blend of youth and experience at WR. Leave it alone.
This is one position we have taken care of.

I think we need to make sure Lloyd doesn't go BM on us and hold out before shopping Gaff.

I think no less than a 3 for Gaff it's a very weak class for WR's with A.J. Green and Julio Jones as the only two legit 1st round picks. McD Knows he would fit his system but probably has no say in personnel if the Rams are smart....

There are a few teams who could use upgrades at WR like Carolina, St Louis, Seattle, Cincinnati if they ship Ochocinco out of town. If we could land any value in a trade I don't see why we would keep him, Lloyd is a bigger playmaker, Thomas is bigger and faster, Decker and Royal are already one too many slot recievers, no reason to have a 60 catch type of guy sitting at 5th WR.

why wouldnt we shop Royal then though?

I mean, the return would be bigger (definitely a 3rd) and we have a Decker type guy that fits the same role he does

Gaffney is a solid possession reciever, with Lloyd there to spread the field and Decker/Royal in the slot. D-Thomas will be trusted the day he stays healthy for more than 4 days straight

if we get a 5th or 6th for Gaffney its a total waste

Someone needs to inform Klis that vets cannot be traded for draft picks this year.

I would agree if they were only counting on Deck & DT. But those two + Lloyd, Royal & Willis I think Gaff is completely expendable.

If someone offers a 4th, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Maybe...if his replacement stays healthy. If we got that from a 5th rounder people would say it was a great deal. If we can get a 4th...and since McD gave one up for a guy with far less production, I don't see why not...do it. Then we can package that 4th with our 3rd and move up a bit higher. Loading up on low round picks and using them as ammo to move up...that's the best idea IMO.

I wouldn't want Jabar Gaffney going for anything less than a 4th rounder. As others have said, we can use his veteran presence...

Not sure he's worth a 4th but maybe we could flip a 6th and gaffney for a 4th, something like that
