Isn’t there some moreal about accepting gifts from your opponents on the eve of battle? If there is, it was lost on Redskins receiver Jabar Gaffney, who is proud to be the recipient.
With holiday shopping season underway, Gaffney showed up to team facilities today in his bathroom best, showing off his brand new, personalized Redskins bathrobe.
The robe arrived at the facilities yesterday, courtesy of Patriots offensive tackle Matt Light. Light is a friend and former teammate from Gaffney’s years in new England, and he apparently has some sort of sponsorship deal with SportsRobe.
Whatever the reason was, Gaffney intends to put it to good use.
“I guess he wants more people to wear these robes,” he said with a shrug. ”Whatever it is, man, I like it. I’m gonna wear this all over the place.”

Let’s face it. Jabar Gaffney might have been the best No. 3 receiver Tom Brady has had in his arsenal.
Obviously, since his departure in 2009, no one has really stepped in and filled the role adequately, be it Joey Galloway, Brandon Tate, Taylor Price, Chad Ochocinco and so on.
Gaffney caught 85 passes for 1,059 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons from 2006-08.

“Wrist is fine,” Welker said today
When you’re spotted with a brace around town, won’t people notice? How do you respond?
Michael Lombardi said this week that the Redskins would be “a great landing spot” for Peyton Manning. Chris Mortensen said this week that the Redskins would be “one obvious team” that could be interested.
And if that wasn’t enough, I just listened to audio of Adam Schefter — the reporter closest to Mike Shanahan — and Vinny Cerrato — who knows Dan Snyder as well...
How he beats you: The third-year cornerback has come into his own this season, recording an NFL-best seven interceptions and also leads the Patriots with 65 tackles and 12 pass deflections. The 5-foot-10, 196-pound graduate of Gwynn Park High School does well both in man and zone coverage and has sharp instincts. Said Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan: “He’s got good...
The Patriots were missing another tackle today. Tackle Marcus Cannon missed his first practice, joining Sebastian Vollmer on the sidelines. That’s what colleague Ian Rapoport reports from the upper grass field. The injury is something new. If he and Vollmer are both out, that’s two tackles, which could lead to the promotion of Matt Kopa from the practice squad. The Pats would...
