Talented return specialist Joshua Cribbs remains a free agent.
The Arizona Cardinals expressed interest. However concern over Cribbs' health, with a history of concussions while undergoing an offseason procedure to repair a torn meniscus in his knee, ended Arizona's overall interest. No contract.
Fortunately for the eight-year veteran entering his ninth season, Cribbs recently passed a physical with the Oakland Raiders, who have reportedly offered him a contract, according to the NFL Network. The New York Jets and New York Giants are expressing interest with scheduled visits planned (or having already taken place).
Cribbs currently owns the NFL record with eight kickoff returns for touchdown. Add another three on punt return and he's scored 11 times on special teams; however he's only scored one touchdown in the past three years (a punt return in 2011).
Community poll time. Without worrying about the money (not like it's yours to worry about anyway), would you give him a look?
