Free agent KR Josh Cribbs still wants to play but is "open to retirement."
Cribbs said he's drawn some interest from the Jaguars, Chiefs, and Patriots. He won't be getting any guaranteed money or anything more than the veteran's minimum. Cribbs just turned 32 and has been a fumbling machine with 37 during his career to go with 20 total touchdowns on offense and special teams. Fri, Jun 26, 2015 11:27:00 AM

Colts released KR Josh Cribbs.

Cribbs was once one of the best returners in the league, but has battled injuries and is going on 32. He committed a back-breaking fumble in the AFC Championship Game. It's possible he's played his final down. Phillip Dorsett will be the Colts' returner going forward.

Colts signed KR Josh Cribbs.

Cribbs has been out of the league all season and spent the majority of last year on I.R. with the Jets. He should overtake Griff Whalen for return duties.

Free agent special teamer Josh Cribbs worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.

Now 31, Cribbs hasn't drawn much interest since he was allowed to walk in free agency by the Jets. It doesn't appear as if he's getting a deal in Indy.

Updating a previous item, Josh Cribbs was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectorals muscle Tuesday.

It was initially reported that Cribbs was placed on I.R. with a shoulder injury. Either way, his season is over. Cribbs should be ready for the summer.

Jets placed KR Josh Cribbs on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Cribbs' days of running the wildcat for New York's beleaguered offense are through. Going on 31 and increasingly injury prone, Cribbs is going to have trouble finding a home for the 2014 season. His once dynamic return skills have all but evaporated. Darius Reynaud has been signed to take his roster spot.

Coach Rex Ryan said Josh Cribbs' shoulder injury is "pretty bad."

Cribbs is likely done for the year after appearing in just six games for the Jets. Antonio Cromartie filled in as a kickoff returner in Week 13, but that's not a viable solution considering his hip issues and role on defense. The Jets might have to look back to old friend Joe McKnight, who is currently on the street.

Josh Cribbs will undergo a Monday MRI after exiting Sunday's Week 13 game with shoulder and chest pain.

The Jets' Wildcat trickster had zero offensive touches before exiting in the first quarter Sunday. Cribbs' injury has no tangible fantasy impact.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 09:39:00 PM

Josh Cribbs left Sunday's Week 13 game against the Dolphins with a shoulder injury.

Cribbs suffered the injury in the first quarter and has been ruled out for the game. Kyle Wilson has replaced him on kick returns.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 02:18:00 PM

Josh Cribbs rushed five times for 20 yards and completed 1-of-2 passes for 13 yards in the Jets' Week 12 loss to Baltimore.

Obviously lacking confidence in rookie quarterback Geno Smith, the Jets turned to heavy usage of Wildcat-type plays with ex-Brown Cribbs as the triggerman. Cribbs was just signed off the street on October 15. Knowing Rex Ryan's affinity for the Wildcat, it's entirely possible this package stays as staple of Marty Morhinweg's offense. It was relatively effective in Week 12.

Jets signed KR/WR Josh Cribbs.

The Jets were interested in Cribbs in the offseason, and worked him out again two weeks ago. The veteran return specialist provides insurance for KR/WR Clyde Gates (shoulder). Cribbs won't play on offense in New York.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 01:21:00 PM

Free agent KR/WR Josh Cribbs worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

In what sounds like an agent-driven report, CBS' Jason La Canfora reports Cribbs is "back to full health." Now on the wrong side of 30, Cribbs would likely be limited to special teams if he wound up with Gang Green.

Raiders released KR/WR Josh Cribbs.

Looks like he's done. Knee problems popped up on Cribbs' offseason physicals, and his lack of burst was evident on kickoff returns in preseason games. The Raiders will go with Jacoby Ford as their No. 3 receiver and return specialist.
Sun, Aug 25, 2013 02:20:00 PM

Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs' roster spot is "on shaky ground."

Cribbs has looked several steps slow on preseason returns, and he doesn't help on offense. "I think we’ve got to see the burst and the explosion," coach Dennis Allen said. "That’s something that we’re looking for in the next couple of games." The Raiders would lose nothing by cutting Cribbs and his $865k salary.
Mon, Aug 19, 2013 04:54:00 PM

Based on preseason tape review, CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair believes Raiders KR/WR Josh Cribbs has "lost a step."

Cribbs underwent offseason meniscus surgery, and several NFL teams wouldn't clear him during free-agency physicals. Through two exhibition games, Cribbs has returned five kickoffs for 115 yards (23-yard average). The 30-year-old has not been involved in the punt return game or in the Raiders' offense.
