Joshua Cribbs may have taken his Cleveland Browns helmet off for the final time. In Honolulu for the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl, the 29-year-old receiver and return man hauled in three passes for 56 yards and a touchdown. But with his free agency off-season looming, the long-time member of the Browns, the NFL record holder has yet to here of his future since Jimmy Haslam III and Joe Banner took over making the decisions in Berea. For 2012, Cribbs did not score a touchdown in the regular season, covering six runs, seven catches, 38 punt returns and 43 kick returns. He was a large part of the field position game, averaging 27.4 yards per kickoff return and 12.0 yards per punt return — both figures among the top six in the NFL. Over the course of the regular season, Cribbs voiced his displeasure about not being used as a weapon on offense. These cries were met with the same amount of silence he has received since Week 17. Fellow Pro Bowler Phil Dawson will also be a free agent heading into the 2013 season. [Related: Browns drop final game to Steelers and start off-season of change] (Source: Canton Repository)
