Cleveland Browns return man Josh Cribbs took to the radio to pronounce "My agent has been meeting with several different teams, " he said in an interview on WKNF-AM.
"There is a lot of interest. There are already numbers brought to the table. Things are happening. Wheels are turning behind closed doors," he said.
Really? Ever heard of a little something called tampering? It's been in the news lately. Colts CB Vontae Davis had to backtrack about his buddy Sean Smith talking to other teams, telling people that his Twitter account was hacked.
But you'll hear no such lame excuses from Cribbs. His agent will have to handle this one.
"Our conversations to this point have been exclusively with the Browns, but we do anticipate a strong market for him," agent Peter Schaffer told The Plain Dealer. "Josh was rated the No. 2 kick returner and No. 2 special teamer last season. When has that ever happened? Not to mention all the things he can do for a team on offense."
Good answer Schaffer; way to quickly change the subject.
