Pay Josh Cribbs or else…

Pay the man!

Pay the man!

It’s time to pay Josh Cribbs. $1.4 million a year..really? Cribbs is the all-time leader in NFL history for kickoff returns for TDs and the Browns offer him $1.4 million a year. I’d be insulted too if I were him. The Browns had to know that offering Cribbs that low of an offer would piss him off, yet they did it anyway. The guy is not only the best player on the team, but also the best citizen off. He’s done everything the organization has asked- including keeping his mouth shut while being severely underpaid. Reward the guy and show the rest of the players that if you work hard on and off the field you will be taken care of. Instead the Browns do the opposite. They send a message to not only their own players that they won’t be taken care of, but also to the rest of the guys in the league that the Browns are still a second class organization.
I still believe this will eventually be taken care of and Cribbs will remain a Brown. However, it shows very poor judgement. Mike Holmgren did a good thing bringing Eric Mangini back but it’s now time to save this situation and show Cribbs some respect. The Browns can’t afford to lose this guy or the fan’s support.
