Re: Dolphins interested in Josh Cribbs

I don't think you have enough former Jets to make this trade work

And it could happen, the Browns like getting rid of their better players.
Yeah he's arguably the best returner in the league and a great ST player on D too. He's also an adequate WR, a former QB and has been used well in trick plays. In other words, he'd be GOLD on the Dolphins and is worth much more than you guys are giving credit for to the Browns. Phins better be ready to pay if they're really interested.

The Browns don't deserve credit...at least Mangini doesn't. They should have kept Romeo.

But back to the topic, there is no way they can get anything near what they got for Braylon. Braylon is considered a pro bowl wideout, while Cribbs does the stuff behind the scenes.

I'm not saying Cribbs doesn't deserve to be worth a lot, but nobody will give up too much for him. Hell a 4th rounder sounds perfect, but nothing more than a 3rd.

I'm glad someone shares my sentiments.

Along with Miami, the Chiefs, Raiders, and Colts have also reportedly shown interest in trading for Browns KR/WR Josh Cribbs. The Browns don't seem interested in restructuring Cribbs' contract, and they're not going to be competitive any time soon. A Pro Bowl special teamer may be a luxury they can't afford, so it's worth see what kind of draft-pick package they can get in return. Cribbs would likely require a new contract wherever he winds up.

Palm Beach Writer and his thoughts.

Dolphins might enter sweepstakes for Pro Bowl return man Josh Cribbs, but a line is forming
by Edgar Thompson

With Tuesday’s trade deadline looming, the Dolphins might make a bold and out-of-character move to make a play for Browns’ return man Joshua Cribbs.

Unhappy with his contract and stuck on the 1-4 Browns, an NFL source with knowledge of the situation said Cribbs has asked to be traded.

Kansas City and Oakland have inquired about Cribbs’ availability, while Miami and Indianapolis also have been rumored as possible trading partners, according to the source.

Cribbs, who has three years remaining on a six-year, $6.7 million contract he signed in 2006, might be the NFL’s top return man.

He averages 16.3 yards on 16 punt returns, including a 67-yard touchdown. Cribbs averages 26.3 yards on kickoffs this season, but led the league with an average of 30.7 yards in 2007.

Cribbs leads the league with 877 kick-return yards and 260 punt-return yards.

He has five touchdowns on kickoff returns in five seasons. He has seven total TDs on returns.

Cribbs also averages 9.3 yards on nine carries and can play out of the Wildcat formation.

Last Thursday, coach Tony Sparano said a player with special abilities as a returner would interest him, even if the player didn’t have a big role anywhere else.

“I would say this, if we had a guy that I felt had that rare ability, I think it is a rare ability I really do like [Dave] Meggett type of ability, those people…. You can bet I would find a place for that guy,” Sparano said. “When you are looking at those type of players, you try to find places for them.”

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Cribbs would cost the Dolphins a draft pick or two and/or possibly a player with big-play ability, like Ted Ginn Jr., who has been up and down during his three seasons.

Cribbs, 26, also would need a new contract.

Ginn had a 53-yard TD catch Monday night. With Chad Henne at quarterback, he could begin to become the down-field threat Miami envision when it used the No. 9 pick on him in 2007.

With Pat Cobbs out with a knee injury, Ginn will get another crack at returning kickoffs. He hasn’t made the expected impact there, but he’s eager to try.

“I still think I’m one of the greats in the business doing it,” he said this week. “I just haven’t had the opportunity to do it.”

If Cleveland is willing to part with Cribbs, bet the Dolphins to strongly consider it. This is a chance a team on the rise would not want to miss.
Ted Ginn Jr AND draft picks?

Sign me up for that!
