Agent for Cribbs Says He was Promised a New Deal


The agent for Josh Cribbs is speakig out on all the talk about his client wanting a new deal, stating that the Browns previous management team made promises to renegotiate with the former Pro Bowler.  “I don’t think we’re being unreasonable at all,” agent J.R. Rickert told the AP. “All we are asking is to have meaningful talks. Anything would be acceptable to Josh other than, ‘You are playing with your current deal.”’

Cribbs is set to make $620,000, $635,000, $650,000 and $790,000 over the next four years of his current deal, which saw him get a $2 mil signing bonus, and overall agree to six-years at $6.7 million.  The one thing that the agent pointed out to the AP is that Cribbs is not saying or demanding a trade or anything stupid like that.

“Josh is not saying, ‘Give me a deal or else,”’ Rickert said.  So far Cribbs has not shown up to the teams mini-camp, which is set to wrap up on Thursday in Berea.

    If you want to have “meaningful talks”, you don’t start the process by coming out and embarassing the Team in public by saying that it has broken a promise to offer a new contract – you go to the Team and start talking! Contracts 101.

    So now it’s the old guys promised…. I kind of thought so. I understand the concept of doing more and getting an increase. I also understand we’re a nation of laws, made and in many cases shoved down our throats by attorneys; now they are the ones that get to tell us a legal, binding document, which is signed in the first place to avoid all this, is able to be broken….oh, and by the way, only they know when that is that it’s in the best interest of the parties that is should be broken. Give me a break. Play your contract and engrace your self to the guys who gave you a chance in the first place when you weren’t even going to be drafted. Only six figures…please.
