Found March 19, 2013 on Cleveland Sports 360:
Browns return man and wide receiver Josh Cribbs failed the Physical with the Arizona Cardinals and gets no deal at this time. Cribbs  had his knee scoped after the Pro-Bowl and for some reason wasn’t able to pass the teams Physical. This leaves the long-time Cleveland favorite in no-mans land for the time being. Cribbs is a man who may not have a team. He can try to get past the Physical in a couple of weeks but we have to wonder what this is going to do to the deal Cribbs and his agent was after. The Knee that was scoped was kept silent this off-season. You have to wonder if this was another poor move on the part of Cribbs’s agent. Josh should be able to fully recover from the minor knee surgery but as this time the Cardinals are taking no chances on the Veteran return-man. Cribbs is going to have to stick it out and try to get past the Physical in a couple of weeks.
