Since the off-season began the Cleveland fans have wondered ifr the Browns would resign free agent Josh Cribbs. Over the weekend at the NFL combine it was reported that the Browns weren’t interested in Cribbs asking price. Josh Cribbs took to the local airways in Cleveland today to say he really wants to finish his career in a Browns uniform. He said in his radio interview he would consider taking a small pay cut to make a deal with the Browns happen.
Josh Cribbs sure doesn’t have much of a poker face. His agent who met with the Browns in Indianapolis has to be sweating bullets. He probably is seeing his 10% getting smaller right before his eyes. Reports also surfaced last weekend that said the 49ers were showing some interest in Cribbs. Either that report was bogus or Cribbs really wants to finish his career in Cleveland. With the Browns playing hard ball with Cribbs, it will be interesting if they extend a offer anywhere close to what Cribbs considers a small pay cut.
We are just days away from the official start of NFL free agency and maybe the Browns will make Cribbs their first official free agent signing.
