Patriots Rumors: New England "On Top" to Land WR/KR Cribbs

Jason Miller

The Patriots are reportedly close to solving their kick return woes, as they appear to be the leader in the Josh Cribbs sweepstakes.

The New England Patriots reportedly expressed interest in longtime Browns kick returner/receiver Joshua Cribbs over the weekend, and now they're reportedly the leader for his services. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports:

Now that we've officially reached the start of free agency, it seems fair to put a little more stock into this report. Cribbs, at age 29, would instantly solve the Patriots' kick return woes, and could also be an intriguing option on offense. He hasn't ever really been used consistently in that area, but considering how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands, you'd have to think Josh McDaniels would find a way to get the ball into his hands.

Of course, no deal has been announced or even reported yet. If and when it is, we'll be on it.
