The Patriots have made another big move, resigning free agent wide receiver Jabar Gaffney. The deal is one year, and worth two million. Gaffney said he wanted something longer, and thinks that a new deal will happen.
I cannot stress how big of a move this is. Last pre-season, I said that Gaffney might surpass Stallworth on the depth chart, and he did. Gaffney played phenominal in his given oppurtunities last year. With Stallworth out of the way, Gaffney should see even more playing time. I’d expect him to have between 50 and 70 catches next year, with 750-1000 yards. Even if Chad Jackson steps up the way we hope, Gaffney will still have a big role on this team, as he is versatile enough to play in the slot or on the outside.
