Gaffney, who is 6-foot-2, set career highs last season with 65 catches and 875 yards. The nine-year veteran also had two touchdowns.

“It shocked me,” Gaffney said during a teleconference. “I didn’t have any proof it was going to happen.”

Stallworth comes to the Redskins from the Ravens, where he caught only two passes for 82 yards last season. They’re his only two catches since he served a 24-day prison sentence in 2009 for DUI manslaughter.

“I haven’t been able to really show it much [recently], but my favorite thing has always been to catch the short passes, break a tackle or two and take it the distance,” Stallworth said in a phone conversation. “Hopefully that’s what I can do this year, and we can be successful not only as an offense but as a team.”

The New Orleans Saints drafted Stallworth in 2002 when current Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was their coach.

Stokley played for Redskins coach Mike Shanahan in Denver from 2007-08. In 11 games with Seattle last season, he had 354 receiving yards and no touchdowns on 31 catches.

Clemens, 28, was the New York Jets’ third-string quarterback last season. The Jets drafted him in the second round in 2006, but he has only nine career starts.

Acquiring him leaves the starting quarterback spot open for John Beck or Rex Grossman, although Grossman has not agreed to a free agent contract extension with the team.

The Redskins parted with Jarmon, who is undersized for the end position in the 3-4.

In the pre-dawn hours Wednesday, the Redskins and defensive lineman Barry Cofield agreed to a six-year, $36 million deal with $12.5 million guaranteed, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

Cofield, 27, has started all but two games in his five NFL seasons as a nose tackle in the New York Giants’ 4-3 front. At 6-4 and 306 pounds, he’s a bit light for a prototypical 3-4 nose tackle.

Two sources with knowledge of the situation indicated the Redskins will decide whether to play Cofield at nose tackle or defensive end depending on other free agent moves with this week.
