Cleveland (WOIO) - Josh Cribbs insists he didn't mean to say that his agent is already talking with other teams, which, prior to the start of free agency on March 12th, would be tampering under NFL rules. In fact, Cribbs told 19 Action News that if that was the case, Cribbs would have been more vague during a recent appearance on a local radio show. Instead, Cribbs was blunt about his chances of remaining with the Browns.
"If they wanted to keep me, they could have done something last season", said Cribbs. "It's all about productivity, on special teams and offense."
Between the rules change involving kickoffs (moving the ball up to the 35 yard line in 2011), and the Browns' inability to find a full-time spot for Cribbs on offense, his production has dropped dramatically over the past three years.
Cribbs has taken eight kickoffs back for touchdowns in his eight-year career, but none since 2009.
