Rumors coming out of the west that the Cleveland Browns great special team player Josh Cribbs could end up going to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns reportedly won’t meet the asking price that Cribbs and his agent put on the table of 2 million dollars. You would think to have a great special teams player like Cribbs who not only handled the return duties for the Cleveland Browns, he was also the guy that made the tackle more often than not on the coverage team. The Cleveland Browns could see the 49ers swoop in and sign the best special teams player in the Browns roster.
Not only are the 49ers thinking about Josh Cribbs the Chargers are too. The Browns may be being penny wise and dollar foolish by not resigning Cribbs. In the NFL 2 million dollars isn’t that much money. Cribbs brought a lot to the Browns and he can add to the Browns offense too. Lets say the Browns don’t resign him and the 49ers do. This might be to Cribbs advantage. He could end up in the Super Bowl at the conclusion of the 2013 season. That is something that isn’t going to happen with the Cleveland Browns unless they drastically turn things around and start winning football game this season.
It would be a shame not to have Josh Cribbs finish his career in Cleveland, but that is the way it is looking as we come closer to the March 4th start of free agency.
