Jabar Gaffney is in deeper doo-doo than I thought. The Washington Redskins' leading receiver told ESPN980-Redskins Radio yesterday that he was told the team was trying to trade him. Mike Jones reported in today's print edition of The Washington Post that Gaffney was told that he is on the trading block and that the Redskins would release him if unable to trade him. Gaffney was told to stay away from Redskins Park, says Jones.
Wow! A fall that abrupt could only have come from orders from the top and I don't mean from Coach Mike.
My grandma always warned us about putting our business on the street. Where was Jabar's granny when he needed her? Gaffney vented a profane tweet stream about his wife and Lito Sheppard, who is his cousin according to Wikipedia.
You can always believe what you read in Wikipedia and on Twitter. This affair, true or not, has no business on the virtual street. True or not, the Redskins must feel the matter to be too hot for the brand.
Kids, let this be a war...
