Cleveland Browns Jerseys

Cribbs Says It’s Unlikley He’ll Stay with Browns

Wednesday night at the Cavs game against the Wizards, Josh Cribbs seemed totally frustrated about the current situation with the club. Now that he knows the team is in his mind low-balling him in terms of a deal, he’s coming out and saying he doesn’t think that he’ll stay with the team.

“It’s unlikely the way they’re talking right now,” said Cribbs. “I’m hurt because I don’t want to play for nobody else. But the way they’re talking, they’re leaving me no choice.”

The deal the club reportedly offered Cribbs pays him $1.4 million per season, which is more than he’s getting paid now, but quite a bit less than what he would like to see on the table.

“The season is over, so I doubt they’ll take me seriously now,” Cribbs said. “That’s what I get for playing hard for my team. I don’t want to come off as greedy, I just want what’s fair. They’re going to do this to me?”

Cribbs has three years remaining on a six-year, $6.77 million deal.

    Nice first move Holmgren, nothing new, just screw the best thing that team has going. Anyone who says Cribbs is not a team player is an idiot. The guy just goes ouot and sets the standard for the NFL in kick returns and Special Teams takles. Show me anothe kick returner that has as many tackles as Cribbs does. New face, same old Browns.

      I couldn’t agree with you more! He is the only reason Mandummi has a job! If they don’t pay this guy his fair share, I along with a lot of my Cleveland family will boycott the Browns next season. If they want to low ball some people how bout staring with the QB’s under-achieving a@#es. That’s 14miillion dollars there to reduce to pay the people that despite sorry coaching still showed up each and every game. New head office same ol’ FU play for me mantality. Can’t take it anymore! Josh played for peanuts since he’s been in.

    It would seem to me that common sense has finally arrived in Berea. I like and support Cribbs, but not at any cost. these agents have us eating out of their hands; they get one guy an outrageous salary raise, it follows we have to give everyone the same. This is the very reason, in the court of common sense, you don’t renegotiate a four year deal in the end of the first year. Or second year. and believe me, there will be a line of otheres jumping on the precedent set here. It is so easy for us to yell, ‘pay the man’ randy. heck pay um all, throw money at um. and when someone like the indians owner can’t afford the escalating costs of keeping up with the jones, we blame them. enough is enough. 1.4 milliion for playing football….what’s wrong with this picture.

    Sounds like Josh doesn’t understand this business very well or is having some major disconnect a la agent-speak. There are 3 years left on his contract, and I’m sure he can’t afford to sit with nothing for 3 years any more than Cleveland can afford to not have him on the field for those same 3 years. It is the off-season for Cleveland – but the playoffs have not even started yet. Holmgren is just into the job with no GM — the guy who will be responsible for player personnel, from what I understand. Cribbs isn’t going to be homeless or without food, for cryin’ out loud. Relax. Eat a Twinkie, enjoy the Pro Bowl and get some endorsements (isn’t this his agent’s job, too? Seems like his efforts might be better spent in this direction at this point, I should think, instead of stirring this pot in the acrimonious manner he has). This will get done — and will get done right — for everyone involved.
