Josh McDaniels’ Denver influence brings back Jabar Gaffney

We remember when Jabar first came to New England in October 2006. He went on to learn all three wide receiver positions; something we have found out isn’t quite easy to do (Chad Ochocinco). Welcome back Jabar Gaffney, a 60 Max favorite has agreed to a two-year contract.

In 2009, we screamed when Bill Belichick allowed Gaffney to walk to Denver for short money, where he blossomed even further. Gaffney is a very good route runner who understands the concepts of the Patriots offense. Gaffney rejoins Brandon Lloyd, another former Denver receiver who has had some solid success.

This is a clear fingerprint of Josh McDaniels, who worked with both receivers in the same offense and has intricate knowledge of their skill sets.

From 2006-2008, Gaffney hauled in 85 passes, 1,059 yards and 8 TDs for New England. He has 443 receptions, 5,622 yards and 24 TDs in his 10 year career.

He joins a crowded WR corps including newly acquired Anthony Gonzalez, Donte' Stallworth and Lloyd, along with Chad Ochocinco, Deion Branch and Wes Welker.

Jabar had been in the news recently via an odd Twitter rant in which he later claimed that his account was hacked.
