Browns receiver Josh Cribbs will become a free agent in less than two weeks. He said Thursday that his agent is talking to other teams. Given that Cribbs doesn’t become a free agent until March 12, that’s a problem.
So how did Cribbs’ agent solve the problem? By denying it, of course.
“Let me be clear,” J.R. Rickert said on Twitter. “[Cribbs] is a Cleveland Brown [until] March 12. No other discussions are [in] process.”
Sure they’re not.
Maybe Cribbs was just misinformed. Or maybe we’ve found the one upcoming free agent as to whom there is no tampering. And he just happens, coincidentally, to also be the one guy to admit that tampering is happening.
