Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2009-04-18


Cleveland Browns Strategy and Personnel 2009-04-18
Serious thought has been given to using Joshua Cribbs as a part-time safety. He is entering his fifth year and so far has not had much impact as a wide receiver -- only 16 catches in four years, and 10 of those were made in 2006.


Cribbs caught only two passes in 2008. His value on offense is as a rusher from the quarterback position. He carried the ball 29 times last year, third most on the Browns behind Jamal Lewis (279) and Jerome Harrison (34).

Cribbs, a standout kick returner, is likely to stay on offense almost exclusively if the Browns draft a safety. Cribbs said he is willing to play whatever position the Browns ask him to play.
