Cribbs Won’t Play a Regular Season Game Without a New Deal

There’s been talk between the Browns and Josh Cribbs about a new deal, and for now, everyone is playing nice. Problem is, now there’s word from the PD that Cribbs won’t play a regular season game unless he has a new contract:

Browns receiver Josh Cribbs plans to report to training camp on time Friday, but is adamant he won’t play a regular season game without a new contract or significant progress towards one, a source close to the situation said Monday. Cribbs’ agent, J.R. Rickert, will come to Cleveland this week, most likely on Thursday, to try to get things moving, the source said.

Cribbs hopes that by showing up for training camp, which opens to the public with two practices on Saturday, the team will realize how committed he is and show a willingness to negotiate.

    If Josh thinks that he deserves something similar to Devin Hester, then he better take another look at the stats comparison…

    Does it have to be that way that just when things actually start stacking up just a little in our favor someone has to go and be an idiot. Give me a break. This is llike saying, yes, I signed a multi year contract, but I don’t like it anymore, and while I’m coming into the plant, I won’t be going to my job station and that somehow shows good faith. It shows a spoiled brat with hidden agendas. It shows that while you acted like you were one of us and glad to have made the team, you really were manuvering for what you percieve as the spot where you can hold the cards and demand what you want. Well guess what; you ain’t all that. While a good returner and an athlete, you have a l ong way to go to show us you can do these other things. And I’m not sure you’re built to take the punnishment that is going to be dished out in your new roles, if any. Play ball, and let the money come for what you DO.

    Show up and play. He signed the K and it is what it is. It was certainly possible to load the agreement with incentives — or even add an addendum with incentives at this point. Only in pro sports is a contract not worth the paper it is written on.
