Former Cleveland Browns receiver/returner Josh Cribbs flew to Arizona Sunday to meet with the Cardinals and take a physical, reports Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer.
Barring any issues, Cribbs will sign with the team Monday. The exact details of the contract are unknown, but expect an announcement later today.
Cribbs would've liked to stay in Cleveland, but the feeling wasn't mutual with the team's new management. Cribbs was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State in 2005.
Cabot writes: ' Cribbs, an eight-year veteran of the Browns and three-time Pro Bowler, knew Wednesday that he was gone, and sent a message to his fans via his twitter and instagram accounts. On twitter, he wrote, "It's been a blessing to be in Cleveland, wishing the best to the city and the team.''
During his time with the Browns, Cribbs returned eight kickoffs for touchdowns, which is tied for first in NFL history with Leon Washington. He also amassed 12,169 combined kickoff and punt return yards, becoming just the sixth player in NFL history to reach the 12,000-yard plateau. In the season finale against Pittburgh, he surpassed Dennis Northcutt to become the Browns' all-time leader in punt return yardage with 2,154 yards. '
