The Patriots have re-signed receiver Jabar Gaffney to a two-year contract, according to a league source.

Gaffney caught 85 passes and eight touchdowns with the team from 2006-08, before signing with the Broncos in 2009 -- where he played for Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Gaffney, who was a favorite of quarterback Tom Brady, was released by the Redskins this week.

The Patriots now have the following players at receiver:

Wes Welker (unsigned franchise tag)
Brandon Lloyd
Deion Branch
Donte Stallworth
Anthony Gonzalez
Julian Edelman
Chad Ochocinco
