San-francisco-49ers
Rumors coming out of the west that the Cleveland Browns great special team player Josh Cribbs could end up going to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns reportedly won’t meet the asking price that Cribbs and his agent put on the table of 2 million dollars.  You would think to have a great special teams player like Cribbs who not only handled the return duties for the Cleveland Browns, he was also the guy that made the tackle more often than not on the coverage team. The Cleveland Browns could see the 49ers swoop in and sign the best special teams player in the Browns roster. Not only are the 49ers thinking about Josh Cribbs the Chargers are too. The Browns may be being penny wise and dollar foolish by not resigning Cribbs. In the NFL 2 million dollars isn’t that much money. Cribbs brought a lot to the Browns and he can add to the Browns offense too. Lets say the Browns don’t resign him and the 49ers do.  This might be to Cribbs advantage. He could end up in the Super Bowl at the conc...

  • One issue that may not have been mentioned is the serious concussions that Cribbs suffered this past season. To me; Cribbs has been the ultimate team player and has sacrificed his body to help the Browns win. The Browns must feel that Travis Benjamin can take over the kick return duties but as mentioned above ; what was reguraly overlooked, was his punt return coverage dominance which will be sorely missed if he leaves. If Cribbs does sign with the 49ers, expect him to be wearing a superbowl ring at this time next year. Best of luck yo you!
