Down and Distance:
On Wednesday, former Cleveland Browns wide receiver and kick returner Josh Cribbs reportedly signed with the Arizona Cardinals. Cribbs had been a member of the Cleveland Browns since 2005 when he signed to the team after not being drafted. He became well-known for his kick returning abilities during his tenure with Cleveland before transitioning into a wide receiver. With this being his first opportunity to test free agency, Cribbs decided to leave Cleveland and join another team.
When some players leave the first team they ever played for they are happy to perhaps join a potentially better team and are ready to leave town. Others, take the time to thank the fans of the team they are leaving.
Josh Cribbs would be the latter as yesterday he took to Instagram to thank the fans of Cleveland.
Cribbs offered up this picture for the fans of the Cleveland Browns
Under the caption, Cribbs wrote “It’s been a blessing to be in Cleveland, wishing the best to the city & the Team. If I could stay I would…” before adding a sad face.
Cribbs could have taken out a full page paper ad or not even leave a message for the fans of the Browns, instead he took the classy route.
It is always nice to see players respect a fan base and show their love.

BEST OF MAXIM

BYE BYE BROWNS
Josh Cribbs said goodbye to the city of Cleveland in about as classy of a manner possible. He (or most likely someone from his camp) put together a collage of images from his time in Cleveland that tell a powerful story. Cribbs was signed by the Browns in 2005 as an undrafted free agent. He spent eight seasons with the team and made the Pro Bowl twice as a return man. He scored...
Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver/return specialist and
current free agent Josh Cribbs has flown mostly under the radar this offseason.
The dynamic wide out has reportedly narrowed his search for his next team down
to two, the New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals, according to Mary
Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.

Josh Cribbs is possibly on his way to Arizona. But before he left Cleveland, he wanted to say goodbye to the city in the most creative way possible. And what you see above is what he came up with.It must be said the deal in Arizona isn’t official yet. But seeing as though Cribbs has been talking to many teams for awhile now, he seems to think that a return to Cleveland isn’t...
We wrote a little about Cribbs earlier as it was first reported by Nick Underhill at MassLive.com that Cribbs was on the Patriots radar. Now it seems they are closing in on a deal.
Per @marykaycabot, #Patriots are faves to land Josh Cribbs, followed by #Cardinals and #49ers, source said.

Before free agents were technically allowed to start talking with other teams Josh Cribbs spilled the beans that his people were talking to several team (even thought it was illegal at the time). The fact that he is/was looking comes as no surprise. As talented as he is it would be hard to imagine him not getting interest from other teams.
Now there has yet to be any word on where...
So that's that RT @marykaycabot: Josh Cribbs to Arizona, source told Pd.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) March 14, 2013
So maybe "losing out" is a little bit of a stretch, but the Patriots were pursuing him and at one point were the favorites to sign him. Perhaps the Danny Amendola signing had them a little less interested. Amendola can be a returner too, though not Josh...

Cribbs has been used in a variety of roles with the Browns, including returns, as a receiver and even as a quarterback in the wildcat formation.
His role in Arizona is unclear for the time...

Josh Cribbs shares with rookie receivers
I have a sister in mourning over the impending departure of Josh Cribbs. It stinks to ever have to say goodbye to players that you love as a fan of a team. Even as much as people tend to dislike Ray Lewis outside of Baltimore, there’s no denying that his career there couldn’t have ended more perfectly for his fans. Those situations aren’t...
The Arizona Cardinals were really busy today. They ended up releasing veteran safety Kerry Rhodes and signed the following four free agents:
Safety Yeremiah Bell
Wide receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs,
Quarterback Drew Stanton
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander
The Cardinals added some solid players to their roster today. They dumped Rhodes to free up more cap room.
We asked Browns insider Lane Adkins about Josh Cribbs and his potential return to Cleveland. Here's what Lane said of Cribb's chances to return to Cleveland, or land some place else, like New England.
Over the past 13 season since they returned to the NFL, the Cleveland Browns have given fans one playoff appearance, two winning seasons, and many laughable defeats. You can think of the franchise as huge bowl of delicious Cool Whip with a giant turd in the middle of it. However, there were a few bright spots that appeared over the years, and one of which was Josh Cribbs.
The Arizona Cardinals broke their silence on the open market, as they made many headlines on the second day of the 2013 NFL Free Agency frenzy. A week after moving on from Adrian Wilson, Arizona has now also reportedly released safety Kerry Rhodes, though the team re-signed Yeremiah Bell to a one-year deal and is also acquiring a proven young cornerback off the open market in...
