Free-agent receiver Josh Cribbs has been available for anyone to sign, ever since free agency opened in March.  On Tuesday, he got a rare sniff from a team trying out players.

Per a league source, Cribbs had a workout for the Colts.  Joining him was receiver Willie Snead and defensive tackle Ben Bass.

Cribbs played for the Jets in 2013, after being cut by the Raiders in August.  The Browns had cut Cribbs in March of that same year.

Cleveland’s MVP in 2009, Cribbs in his prime served as a versatile weapon, returning punts and kicks, running the ball, catching the ball, and playing a little quarterback from time to time.

He hasn’t been signed by the Colts.  As more and more players suffer injuries throughout the league, however, Cribbs name could keep floating to the top of the free-agent lists.
