The Washington Redksins are reportedly trying to trade their top 2011 receiver.
The Washington Redskins appear to be gearing up for a 2012 season where they hope to make a huge statement. They have made a bevy of offseason moves and signings, headlined by a trade to secure the No. 2 spot in next week's 2012 NFL Draft, which they will likely use to select former Baylor Bears quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.
Chris Russell from the Redskins Radio Network reports that the Redskins may just be getting started at making deals and overhauling their team for the 2012 season. According to Russell, wide receiver Jabar Gaffney states that the Redskins are currently attempting to trade him.
The Redskins picked up free agent wideout Pierre Garcon via free agency as soon as the market opened, so they may feel he is Gaffney's replacement. Gaffney had a career year in 2011, his first year with the Redskins. He led the team with 947 receiving yards.
