The Oakland Raiders have reportedly cut former Browns return man Josh Cribbs according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Cribbs terminated as vested veteran. Simply never recovered from knee injury. — Jerry McDonald (@Jerrymcd) August 25, 2013 Cribbs signed with the Raiders this past off season after he and new Browns management could not come to terms on a new deal. The former all-pro claimed he would have taken a small pay cut to re-sign with the team who gave him his shot in the NFL, but criticized the new regime in Berea, stating he was “not confident in upper management“. In 2012 Cribbs was chosen by the fans for his third pro bowl, following a season where he ranked in the top ten in the NFL in both yards per kick and punt return. The deal Cribbs signed back in 2010 paid him around $7 million in guaranteed money and was worth up to $40 million in incentives. Conversely, the deal he inked with Oakland this past off-season paid him $225,000 before being cut, leaving the remainder of the $1.25 million unearned. Cribbs joins Mo Massaquoi as another former Browns’ receiver cut this past week. Massaquoi was then picked up by the Jets and is rumored to be preferred over Braylon Edwards.
