That talk of the Browns finally getting more out of Josh Cribbs on offense and defense might be more than just talk.

The first sign of a commitment to expand Cribbs' roles is an expected visit Tuesday by Tennessee free agent Chris Carr.

Carr is a cornerback by trade, but has made his mark with the Titans as a return specialist. If the Browns use Cribbs more on offense, or defense, as indicated by coach Eric Mangini recently, they might reduce his workload as a returner.

Carr was fourth in the NFL last year with a kickoff return average of 28.1 yards. Cribbs was 16th at 25.2. Carr also bettered Cribbs in punt return average last year, 10.1 to 8.1.

Carr, who is 5-10 and 180 pounds, visited the Detroit Lions on Monday. He said in Detroit he wants to play more cornerback and would probably decide among Tennessee, Detroit and Cleveland after visiting the Browns.
