I'd really dig this signing. The Raiders looked at his knee already and he passed the physical. If he's healthy, he can bring a lot of playmaking ability to an offense that has exactly zero of it.

Holy sh** I didn't even know he was on the market.  I like adding Kent State guys too.  First Winters, now Cribbs.  Sign me up.

Josh Cribbs, Oakland Raiders visit; New York Jets next

 

 

Former Cleveland Browns return man Josh Cribbs couldn't find a job early in free agency because his health was in question after he had offseason arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee. Cribbs now says he's healthy and is starting to visit teams again.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection visited the Oakland Raiders on Monday and is set to visit "several" more teams, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday.


If Cribbs still is making visits, it might be a sign he doesn't want to play for the Raiders. Cribbs met with the Arizona Cardinals earlier in the offseason, and a contract reportedly was close. The Cardinals, however, backed off because of Cribbs' health.


UPDATE: Rapoport reported during "NFL Total Access" that Cribbs passed a physical for his knee during his Raiders visit. The Raiders offered Cribbs a contract, per Rapoport, but three other teams are interested.


According to a source, Rapoport said one of the three teams is the New York Jets, whom Cribbs is expected to visit next.

Both. Braylon is going to come cheap, and Cribbs is what... a one year prove it contract? We can get both. We could use depth at wide receiver. Proof, last season.

Good point to consider: does Cribbs signing here mean the end of McKnight?

Probably.  If we're going to carry 4 QB's, and Cribbs can contribute on both offense and as a KR, we probably only need to be carrying Ivory, Goodson, Powell, and a practice squad guy at RB.

I think McKnight is done in their eyes.

Thanks Tom, The Joe McKnight reference is a good one.  I think under Mike Westhoff that guy overachieved bigtime.

because he is not a real receiver. didnt the browns attempt to run a west coast offense last season? hes devin hester....maybe half that. funny how people want to jump all over signing this dud who was fast but must be approaching 30, yet didnt want the Jets to part w/a 4th rounder for ivory.

Would have loved to pair him with Westoff before he retired at the beginning of last season

Who cares? McKnight sucks, and has been treated as such. With that said, I want to see him take more snaps at running back. Powell sucks.

Joe McKnight - another can't miss superstar that peaked before he ever got his hands on a football at USC. Get'em all out of here.

Cribbs is a nice kick returner and not much more. It's not like he'd take WR time from anyone. Don't see the point unless its a one year deal.

Don't understand the interest.  Cribbs is a one trick pony and we already have an excellent KR who's still on a rookie contract. 

 

They better not dare utter the word wildcat as justification.

On most teams this is true but have you seen some of our WRS?
