Saw this....

Scott Jackson from "Inside the Locker Room" on espn980 tweets:

I so hope this happens. He would be a great addition to this team.
I've been hoping for this, but wasn't sure it would happen with him being 29 yrs old & the team going young.

I've been saying for weeks now that Seattle made a mistake trading what they did for Percy Harvin, which was a 2013 1st, 7th and 2014 3rd.

Josh Cribbs although older is everything you have in Harvin without the Headaches. (pun intended)
Without all those drafts picks & not near the Salary, Seattle is paying the man.

If we land Cribbs, say goodbye to Niles Paul.
(Been thinking that anyways with the crop of TE's we have now. If Cribbs is added...bye,bye Paul)

Honestly it wouldn't be a bad pickup, if he's healthy. We've been searching for a dynamic return man for quite awhile.

Cribbs is nowhere near the level of WR that Percy Harvin is...
He's a good return man, though.

I didn't know he was still a free agent.
He failed a physical in March.
That's why the Cardinals didn't sign him.

I wonder if he's fully healed from knee surgery.

Assuming he has some juice left in the tank...

Picturing Garcon, Davis, Cribbs, Reed, Moss, Morgan, Hankerson all lined up in various formations is intriguing Twisted Evil

I love Cribbs, but at this point in his career isn't this a classic case of the Redskins signing a FA who's past their prime and will never live up to what they were at their previous teams

Maybe, but it is not a "Same old Redskins" situation unless they WAY overpay him. If they can get him at a modest price for a year or two and not an 8 year 120 million dollar deal (slight exaggeration) then it's not a bad move.

So far, he's visited the Jets, Raiders, Giants & now the Lions.
No deals at the moment.

We do have quite the knee clinic here now Laughing

But I don't see how we afford him even if healthy either

while true, are we going to cut a player who's under 25 to sign him? A player who could develop into more than a few year rental in a few years. I think it's better to stay put at WR as I've said all along

Josh Cribbs by the numbers:

Top three receptions in a season: 41 (2011), 23 (2010), 20 (2009)
Top three yardage season totals: 518 (2011), 292 (2010), 135 (2009)
Top three TD season totals: 4 (2011), 1 (2008, 2009, and 2010)
Top three YPC season totals: 12.7 (2010), 12.6 (2011), 12.3 (2007 (he only caught three balls that season))

Exactly why would we want him? Because he's a return specialist? He'll be entering his ninth season and we'd have to pay him accordingly. On the other hand, we can take one of our rookies and pay him a third what we would for Cribbs and maybe also get some offensive numbers out of him as well.

Pass.

Exactly - He really hasnt done anything at all in the past 3 years. 1 total return touchdown, on a punt two years ago. I dont think he is really even a "return specialist" I would think most of our dbs and wrs would have a decent chance at .33/year. And he will be 30 in 3 weeks.

He peaked 6 years ago. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/C/CribJo01.htm He was awesome then, but i feel like return guys have a much shorter life span in the NFL than really any other position. Who was the cheifs guy a few years ago? And who was that guy that played for the Redskins? Brandon B__? Smile
