The Browns made a change to their rooster yesterday to avoid paying out a 2 million dollar roster bonus. The team still hasn’t resigned kicker Phil Dawson and wide receiver/special teams stand out Josh Cribbs yet. Many are wondering if the Browns are going to let Phil Dawson walk. Dawson has been the only Cleveland Browns player to be on the teams rooster since they have been back in the NFL. He has always been a dependable kicker and last season had the franchise tag placed on him.
As far as Josh Cribs goes, Jimmy Haslam III said a couple of weeks ago the Browns would be making a decision on Cribbs within the next few weeks. Well, it has been a few weeks and we still haven’t heard anything about a Cribbs signing. The Browns have to make a decision on both men and they should do it soon. Phil Dawson should at least come back for one more year and as far as Cribbs goes, he should come back too. The problem may be that the Browns offer these two guys short-term contracts, and they want something longer.
We are going to have to sit tight and wait to see what the Cleveland Browns next moves are going to be. Both Dawson and Cribbs were pro bowl players and Dawson pull off a backwards onside kick while Cribbs made a few quality catches in the game.
