Report: Jabar Gaffney on Dolphins radar

The New England Patriots made a surprise cut this week by releasing veteran receiver Jabar Gaffney. But here is something that's not a surprise: The Miami Herald reports Gaffney is on the Dolphins' radar.

Miami is waiting for Gaffney's leg injury to heal. But Gaffney is more interested (and hopeful) to return to New England once he's healthy, Armando Salguero reports. You can't blame Gaffney for wanting to play for a contender and making the Patriots his first option. He is one of Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady's favorite receivers, but just wasn't healthy enough in training camp.

But if things fall through with New England, Gaffney is good enough to carve out a sizable role in Miami. The Dolphins are looking to remake their receiving corps, and Gaffney is an upgrade over most of what Miami has.
