If the Browns new General Manager Michael Lombardi wants to show he is a changed man, he should take action and resign Josh Cribbs to a new contract that would see the receiver /kick return man end his career in a Cleveland Browns uniform. Cribbs still brings value to the Browns and could add to the teams receiving crew given the chance he was denied last season. In 20111 Cribbs has a decent year catching the football. In the 2013 pro bowl, Cribbs showed he could still catch the football lining up as a receiver.
Not only does Cribbs bring in another offensive tool to the Browns, his special teams play is special. Sure Cribbs may have lost a step, sure there are some guys that are a bit faster on the team now. I’m not just talking about retruns on special teams. Look how many times Cribbs is down the field on special teams making tackles. How many yards do you think a guy like Cribbs saved the Browns with his ability to find the guy with the football and make the tackle.
Yes, Mike Lombardi Cribbs still brings a certain ammount of value to the Cleveland Browns and yes you should get your blank contracts out of the file cabinet and start to fill one out with the name of Josh Cribbs on it. Lets get this done before he walks away just like Lawrence Vickers did 3 years ago. Don’t let the Browns lose a player that still can help the team compete.
