Dolphins sign Jabar Gaffney, release Legedu Naanee

According to observers, Naanee had a solid training camp and impressed Dolphins coaches.  He was the Dolphins #2 wide receiver, while Brian Hartline recovered from his calf injury.  Hartline took over once he returned, but Naanee was still listed as the #3 receiver in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.  Now he’s gone.  And I can’t get this song out of my head:  Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Ne Ne Ne, Goooood-bye

Gaffney is a solid signing by the Dolphins and it probably would’ve happened sooner if he was healthy at the start of the season.  Gaffney was cut by the Patriots in the preseason because of a thigh injury.  No one knows for sure how healthy he is now, but I’d imagine he already passed the Dolphins physical for them to announce the signing.

Last year with the Redskins, Gaffney caught 68 balls for 947 yards and 5 TDs.  The Dolphins are desperately hoping he can step in and be the third receiving target the Dolphins offense has lacked this season.  It will take Gaffney time to learn the playbook.  BUT, if he’s healthy, I suspect the Dolphins will give him a small number of plays to learn by Sundays game against the Bengals.  I believe, if he’s healthy, he’ll make the trip to Cincinnati.  Don’t worry, he’s already picked a jersey number and it’s not the cursed #19….Gaffney will wear #10 for the Dolphins.
