Rumor: Several Teams Showing Interest in Cleveland Browns' Joshua Cribbs

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

UPDATE (8:22 PM): The OBR says that Cribbs has drawn interest from seven teams so far. According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, five of the teams who have shown interest in Cribbs include the San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Arizona Cardinals. With the 49ers, Cribbs would have a connection to former Browns special teams coordinator Brad Seely.


According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, multiple teams are showing interest in Cleveland Browns' free agent return man Joshua Cribbs.

In the report, Marvez specifically states that the Browns are not in the mix as one of the teams interested in his services. For the past several weeks, Cribbs has been the most vocal Browns free agent on local talk radio shows, stating that he would like to some back with a decrease in base salary, but that he didn't get the impression that the Browns' front office had mutual interest.

Cribbs is the best return game specialists available, but he is also looking to play for a team that will utilize his services on offense as well. In a previous interview, Cribbs also stated that he did not anticipate going to a division rival if he leaves Cleveland.
