We’re at a standstill right now. My plan is to stay with the team as much as possible even if it’s a slight pay cut but at the same time not huge pay cuts. I’m trying to work with the team — I want to be a Brown and end my career here. I’m willing to make a compromise but at the same time I won’t devalue myself. I haven’t really been used to my potential and all of that but I just want to be able to help this football team see a playoff and get to the playoffs, and see what we can do in the post season because I think we’re so close. I would just hate to have to leave the team right when we’re on the cusp of winning. [...] I’m not too confident in upper management because I’m not sure what their plans and their intentions are. Right now it doesn’t seem like the interest level is there with the upper management. – Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl return man/wide receiver Josh Cribbs, Tuesday, on 92.3 The Fan’s “Baskin and Phelps” show. Cribbs, 29, was recently the subject of contractual discussions at the NFL Combine, but it was later reported that the Browns — led by team CEO Joe Banner — are not likely to meet the player’s asking price. In 2012, Cribbs caught seven passes for 53 yards as his role on offense was greatly reduced from the season prior. He will be an unrestricted free agenct on March 12.
