Raiders cut Cribbs, setting stage for possible grievance

Yes, the Josh Cribbs era has ended in Oakland.  (There was one?)

The Raiders have cut Cribbs and waived several others, according to Jerry McDonald of

Gone are linebacker Keenan Clayton, linebacker Eric Harper, fullback Jon Hoese, receiver Sam McGuffie, guard Andrew Robiski, receiver Tray Session, defensive tackle Myles Wade, and wide receiver Isiah Williams.  Also, center/guard Alex Parsons suggested on Twitter that he has been waived, too.

The moves leave the Raiders with 79 players.  They’ll have to trim four more roster spots by Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.

Cribbs, as previously mentioned, is being evaluated for a knee injury.  The decision to cut him while possibly injured could result in a grievance or, before it comes to that, an injury settlement.

    I like Cribbs, he’s a high character guy. Too bad he lost all his explosion.

    Grievance?? I would think that would set the stage for a “Thank God I don’t have to play for the Raiders!” Party.

    Nevermind Cribbs, need to cut that sorry excuse for a left tackle, Alex Barron. What a mess that guy is.

    I’d like to file a grievance against Josh “Special Teams Ace” Cribbs for fumbling two kickoffs and running in cement shoes all offseason.

    Josh heading home to C-Town to retire? Not yet, tough kid won’t give up that easy.

    I love the photo above with the fan and a paper bag on his head. He’s got class

    Cribbs was a classy guy for Cleveland. His return game wasn’t as dynamic last season, but he gave us so many good years. When Cleveland released Cribbs, I understood why they did it, but I wasn’t thrilled that he had to go. I hope he gets another shot with someone and I hope he returns a few for TDs (just not against Cleveland).
