After looking him over several times, the Jets have decided to go ahead and make a move to boost their return game.

A league source confirms to PFT the Jets are signing Joshua Cribbs.

Cribbs made the rounds this summer, trying to prove to teams he was well enough to play. If he is, the All-Decade return man could add an element the Jets have lacked.

With Clyde Gates banged up (shoulder), there could be an immediate opening for a kick returner. Although Gates has gotten better the last two weeks, he’s averaging 24.9 yards per return for the season.
