Cribbs Still Not a Lock to Be There for Training Camp

Seems that Browns returner/wide out Josh Cribbs is still looking at his options when it comes to playing hardball with the Browns come training camp at the end of the month. Cribbs and his people are going to meet next to discuss re-working his current deal.

Cribbs has been back and forth with the team, as he skipped some of the teams voluntary workouts, but later on he showed up to some of the OTAs and mandatory minicamp. While it seems that that would mean he would show up, NFL.com’s Steve Wyche says Cribbs is not planning to play under his current contract, which has has four years remaining from the six-year, $6.7 million contract he had signed two years ago.

The big issue seems to stem from the old regime of Phil Savage and Romeo Crennel telling him that a new deal would be done, but now they are gone, and Cribbs and his agent now have to deal with Eric Mangini and George Kokinis. It will be interesting to see what route Cribbs takes, and the end result for he and the Browns.

    It’s not just a new management regime that Cribbs has to deal with (Kokinis and Mangini), it’s a new-look owner in Lerner. Somehow, Mangini and Kokinis have affected Lerner in the way that he deals publicly with player gripings. That public statement that the Team released immediately after Cribbs’ agent started complaining is a perfect example. I like Josh, but if he thinks that THESE Browns are going to buckle to whatever he wants, he better think again.

    Unbelievable; FOUR years left on his contract and he’s complaining and wants a new deal. we have created a class of whining, spoiled brats that we have repeatedly given into, and it’s gotten us a terrible team full of complainers and high saleried babys. Talk about spoiled. Leave him to run back kicks and don’t give him a penney. Then if he doesn’t get it trade his azz and start the new guys. This is just the wrong way to do it. Can you say higher ticket prices….and don’t give me this ‘he’s worth it’ crap, or he deserves it or any of that. They are way, way, way over paid. It’s a GAME.

    There were times when I was in the Navy where I would have liked to say “you don’t pay me enough, you are disrespecting me so I am not coming into work”. Oh wait a minute, I would have gone to Captains Mast (Non Judicial Punishment, take away money and rank) or court martial.

    I signed a contract and said you pay me this and I will come into work EVERY day and do what I agreed to. Don’t start with the teams may cut them and not pay them. They know that going into it. They SIGNED their name to a contract saying that I will play for this much pay.

    If you feel it is not enough, tough, should have thought about that when you SIGNED the contract, nobody twisted your arm to do so. If you don’t like it cry to your Agent, he brokered it, wait, you signed it! Quit whinning and do the job you signed on to do.

    I am sure there are many Service Members and former Service Members (myself included) that would love to be disrespected as much as these palyers are! Grow up, quit whinning and do your damn job, play a game!
