It was pretty clear when Mike told him that he could seek a trade that he no longer figured into the team's plans. When RG3 got the #10 jersey it was all but certain. I just think Mike wants to give him a chance to catch on with another team quickly instead of "holding him hostage" for trade purposes. Something like that probably garners respect from the other players as well.I don't know about this move. Was it financially related? We could have kept him as long as possible into the Training Camp trying to extract something for him when another team realizes their need for a WR.
Well I was referring to his contributions in Washington, but no, that's not much either. Right place at the right time. Depends on what your team does with the fumble recoveries, really.You mean 2 fumble recoveries in the same game, to lock up a playoff game, and secure his team to a Super Bowl trophy aint much ?
UGH! REALLY hoping Gaffney doesn't go to Dallas although I wouldn't put it past them.The Redskins like Gaffney and appreciate the production he gave them last year. They just don't see much value in having him around going forward as they develop their young offense around their new star quarterback. He was a 2011 stopgap, kind of like Grossman was at quarterback. They're not cutting him because of anything he said or did on Twitter a couple of weeks back. They're not cutting him because they don't think he's any good. They're cutting him because he doesn't fit there anymore.
And yeah, to answer a question I know I'll get 1,000 times in the next couple of days, I believe the Dallas Cowboys would be wise to take a look at him.
I think this was about YACs. Gaffney did not have them, a necessity in the WCO.
Yea, I think our opponents were getting better YAC from Grossman's passes, than our own receivers were.I hear this a lot and I am not saying you're wrong. I just don't see how a receiver is supposed to get YAC if he is reaching, diving or jumping to catch the ball.
Agreed. I also think Shan's is convinced Garçon, Morgan, Hankerson, Moss, Paul, and Robinson will get the job done. And well.I really do think Bruce and Mike are bottom line value guys.
Gaffney as the #3 or #4 here at $2.65M didn't represent good value under the cap.
Again, you take this salary and add it to Beck's and yo have almost $4M in additional flexibility for 2012.
