Cribbs plans to leave Browns
Pro Bowl kick returner Josh Cribbs reportedly cleaned out his locker and said his goodbyes Thursday at the Cleveland Browns' training facility, saying he plans to leave the team in the offseason because the club has not reworked his contract as he wants.
"I said goodbye to some people on the medical staff, some of the equipment guys and the coaches," Cribbs told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I wished the coaches luck and told them I hoped they kept their job. But it absolutely felt like the last time I'd be setting foot inside the building. I feel like it's over for me in Cleveland."
Cribbs praised the decision by team president Mike Holmgren to retain Eric Mangini as the club's coach.
But he also said, according to the Plain Dealer: "There's no way I'll play another down for the Browns without the new contract. They won't let me sit because I have value. They'd be forced to trade me."
