The move was done in order to clear up a spot in the roster for Colts TE Kyle Miller, who Indianapolis had waived in order to sneak him back on the practice squad after activating him for their game with the Patriots.
The Dolphins short-circuited that attempt though, pouncing on the rookie TE, an undrafted free agent from D3 Mount Union who has yet to catch a pass in an NFL game.
However, it's not like Gaffney, who missed their game with the Bills with a knee injury, was doing much to justify his spot on the roster. In three games in Miami, the 11-year veteran had 4 catches for 68 yards.
If this is it, it would be a bizarre end to the NFL career of the former Florida standout. Gaffney is coming off his most productive statistical season of his career in 2011, where he caught 68 passes for 987 yards and 5 TD's for the Redskins.
