Free agent receiver Josh Cribbs has been linked several times with the Cardinals, but still hasn’t signed. And he apparently won’t sign until the Cardinals see that he’s all the way back from arthroscopic knee surgery for a torn meniscus.

Cribbs’ agent J.R. Rickert told Mike Garafolo of USA Today that Cribbs’ torn meniscus hasn’t fully healed. Rickert said it could be a few weeks before Cribbs is all the way back to 100 percent. reported that Cribbs failed his physical with the Cardinals on Monday.

The Cardinals haven’t said whether they plan to sign Cribbs when his knee is all the way back. The Browns do not appear to be interested in bringing Cribbs back.

    Cribbs is a fumbling machine. I believe he has as many, or more, fumbles than anybody per touch over the last few years. I was hoping the 9ers would go after him and now I’m glad they didn’t…unless he is dirt cheap.

    That’s why noone has signed him!! He’s hurt!!

    @nineroutsider: Cribbs has a 4.5% fumble rate on punt/kick returns. The NFL average is 4.4%. Hardly a “fumble machine.”

    Cribbs is a class act on and off the field.there is no question about that.But he has lost a step or two over the past few years.It happens.None the less he definitely is on the back stretch of his career.

    It’s bad when he has a medical team blocking the signing. He’s far from ‘a few weeks away.’ If the Cards med team said he’d be 10o% in a few weeks they’d have signed him and began in house rehab.
    Betting his knee is a lot worse off than we will ever be told.
    Doubt he gets signed this year.

    I hope the Cardinals draft a wr or rb that can return kicks instead of wasting time/money on this guy. He may be a class act, but he doesn’t fit in with a team that’s rebuilding.

    The run in this picture for this article will be getting Cribbs a 15 yard penalty and a fine in 2013…

    I love Josh but it’s time to hang up the cleats. You have become mediocre and won’t get any better. Cut the Man!

    Cribbs is a concussion waiting to happen… buyer beware!

    That’s why I said “per touch”…check his offensive turnovers.
