Free-agent Patriots WR Jabar Gaffney is scheduled to visit the Denver Broncos today.
The website profootballtalk.com first reported the Broncos' plans with Gaffney, and those plans have since been confirmed by the Boston Globe.
This appears to be an example of how the spreading of Patriots executives and coaches around the NFL has boosted the market for players from New England.
First-year Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, the former Patriots offensive coordinator, has first-hand knowledge of the kind of versatility and steadiness that Gaffney brings to a team. McDaniels figures to run a similar offense in Denver, with three receivers in a base package, and Gaffney would appear to be a nice complement with Brandon Marshall and Eddie Royal.
Depending on how aggressive the Broncos are with their offer, and how willing the Patriots might be to match any financial package, Gaffney is still an option to return to New England at this point.
