What to do With Josh Cribbs?

Josh Cribbs is a unique football talent. In the NFL he has played special teams, wide receiver and QB. He was a quarterback in high school in Washington DC. He continued his QB role in college at Kent State University. Josh holds several records at Kent: all-time total offense leader, rushing touchdowns, pass completions, pass attempts, passing yards, touchdowns scored and points scored. Perhaps most impressive is that Cribbs is the only genuine "freshman" in NCAA history to both rush and pass for 1000 yards. He is one of only three QBs in NCAA history to rush for 3500 and throw for 7000 yards in his college career. Josh was signed by the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2005. That year he set a franchise record for kick return yards (more than 1000). He broke his own record the next season in 2006. In 2007 his performance continued to excel resulting in his selection to the Pro Bowl. Last season he scored his 5th pro career touchdown on a kick return.
Football is in the family for Josh. His father was a running back in the USFL and the NFL.
Eric Mangini has hinted that he has grander plans for Josh besides punt and kick returns. He intends to use Cribbs more in the offensive and defensive schemes to utilize his speed and footwork. The evidence that Mangini is serious may have now been revealed in the Browns' courting of Chris Carr of the Titans. Carr is a free agent set to meet with the Browns very shortly. He is a kick return specialist who can also play cornerback. In 2008, Carr's numbers were better than those of Cribbs in terms of kick and punt return averages. This would be a great pick-up by the Browns. Let's use Josh more. He has proven his worth over the past few seasons.
Go Browns!
