Redskins News and Notes

It has been a busy 24 hours for the Redskins. Trades, trades, and more trades! Let's recap.

In the afternoon hours yesterday Ryan O'Halloran reported that the Redskins acquired yet another wide receiver. In a trade with the Denver Broncos, the Redskins sent defensive end Jeremy Jarmon for Jabar Gaffney. The Redskins now have 13 receivers on roster.

In the late hours last night it was reported that the Donovan McNabb trade to Minnesota has been made official. One year after the McNabb era "begins, it ends. In return for McNabb, the Redskins will get a 2012 sixth round pick and a conditional 2013 sixth round pick. The deal will be formally announced today.

Just this morning, however, the Redskins finally got rid of defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. The franchise traded him to the New England Patriots in return for a 2013 fifth round draft pick. After the elimination of McNabb and Haynesworth, the Redskins have gotten rid of their two biggest headaches and distractions.
