Cribbs could see even larger role for Browns

As recently as last week, the Browns and one of the agents for Joshua Cribbs said the two sides were having “positive exchanges” toward a new contract. NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi also noted last week the relationship the organization has with Cribbs has changed under the regime of Mike Holmgren.

“The whole situation has changed,” Lombardi said on Total Access. “They’ll get a deal done. Organizationally, they know it’s important.”

Cribbs suggested the same during Pro Bowl week when he said he’s excited to play under Holmgren and wants to be in Cleveland when “the ship is righted.” All indications of momentum on a deal. So, it may just be a matter of time.

If and when the Browns do pay Cribbs, Terry Pluto of Cleveland’s The Plain Dealer reports they would like to use him in at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps next season.

Sounds like Cribbs will earn whatever money he gets.
