Report: Jabar Gaffney suspended by league after release
Summary of 3 articles · Updated Nov 24, 2012
The Dolphins cut receiver Jabar Gaffney on Wednesday, a day before the league suspended him for two games. The mysterious season of Jabar Gaffney has taken another turn, as he was suspended by the league for two games after being released by the Dolphins earlier this week. At the time of the incident, Gaffney was under contract with the Broncos. Gaffney, however, had just four catches in three games with the Dolphins and missed Miami's game against Buffalo last week because of a knee injury. Gaffney initially appealed the decision but then withdrew the appeal once the Dolphins released him. The fact that Gaffney apparently hadn’t reported or disclosed the arrest could have contributed to the penalty, given that the personal-conduct policy clearly imposes a duty on the player to notify his team or the league of any run-ins with the law. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
