Broncos' Jabar Gaffney Traded For Washington Redskins' Jeremy Jarmon

The Denver Broncos traded wide receiver Jabar Gaffney to the Washington Redskins for defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway confirmed this shortly thereafter.

Jarmon is a 6-foot-3, 278-pound defensive end who was selected by the Redskins in the third round of the 2009 NFL Supplemental Draft, meaning the team had to give up its third round pick in 2010. He played in 11 games and started one for the Redskins in 2009. He appeared in five games and picked up 0.5 sacks in 2010 for the 'Skins. Jarmon was fined for a hit he gave Aaron Rodgers in 2010, causing a concussion for the quarterback.

John Elway tweeted this about Jarmon:

Jeremy is an athletic defensive lineman with great versatility. We are looking forward to having him as Bronco.

Jabar Gaffney played the last two seasons for the Broncos as a possession receiver. He totaled 119 receptions for 1,607 yards and four touchdowns. The Broncos are no longer on the hook for his $2.4 million salary this season. This is a good indicator that the team is ready to use Eric Decker in an expanded role this season.
