Redskins release WR Gaffney

The Washington Redskins announced wide receiver Jabar Gaffney was released Tuesday.

Gaffney, a 10-year veteran, had 68 receptions for 947 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. The Redskins opted to go smaller and younger in the offseason while retaining No. 1 receiver Santana Moss.

Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan signed as unrestricted free agents in March, giving No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III, likely the team's starting quarterback in 2012, a fast fleet of receivers. Tight end Fred Davis (franchise player) was also retained.

Gaffney, 31, began his career with the Texans in 2002 and played for the Patriots (2006-08) and Broncos (2009-10).
