Cribbs' future with Browns in doubt
By James Walker
The relationship between the Cleveland Browns and Pro Bowler Joshua Cribbs has been both contentious and calm over the past two-plus seasons.
Most recently it appeared both sides were finally on the same page. But after talking to Cribbs' representation Wednesday evening, this situation has gone from cordial to awful.
Agent Peter Schaffer said Cribbs is being low-balled by the team and both are extremely upset about it. Cribbs made $900,000 this past season, and the Browns offered to raise his salary to $1.4 million over the final three years of his contract.
"Not only is it insulting, but it's illogical," Schaffer said of Cleveland's offer.
Cribbs said this via Twitter: "Thanks everyone, I love playing for the browns & put my all in to it, but it doesn't look good 4me at this point on returning."
