    Report: Jabar Gaffney suspended by league after release

    per pro football talk

    The mysterious season of Jabar Gaffney has taken another turn, as he was suspended by the league for two games after being released by the Dolphins earlier this week.

    According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, Gaffney’s two-game suspension was issued Thursday, a day after he cleared waivers (Happy Thanksgiving), but no reason was immediately evident.

    Gaffney seemed like such a natural fit with the Dolphins after he was cut during the preseason by the Patriots. Miami was starving for receiving help, and Gaffney was coming off the best season of his career with the Redskins last year (68 catches for 947 yards and five touchdowns).

    But he managed just four catches for 68 yards in the three games he suited up for the Dolphins.

    There were some injuries in there, but not sufficient to explain the sudden drop-off. The circumstances of the suspension may shine a little more light on it.

    Something funny going on. I'd have to say the 2 were connected.

    Re: Report: Jabar Gaffney suspended by league after release

    Free agent WR Jabar Gaffney's two-game suspension stems from a 2010 arrest. The incident occurred in Miami prior to Super Bowl XLIV. Gaffney was a member of the Broncos from 2009-10, so he was just down in the area as a visitor. The receiver was cited for resisting arrest without violence. Gaffney will serve his suspension while on the street, and then will look for more work. Nov 24 - 2:36 PM Got this off his players page under FAs
