    Dolphins might enter sweepstakes for Pro Bowl return man Josh Cribbs, but a line is forming | Miami Dolphins news, training updates, injury reports, trades & more – The Daily Dolphin blog

    With Tuesday’s trade deadline looming, the Dolphins might make a bold and out-of-character move to make a play for Browns’ return man Joshua Cribbs.

    Unhappy with his contract and stuck on the 1-4 Browns, an NFL source with knowledge of the situation said Cribbs has asked to be traded.

    Kansas City and Oakland have inquired about Cribbs’ availability, while Miami and Indianapolis also have been rumored as possible trading partners, according to the source.

    Cribbs, who has three years remaining on a six-year, $6.7 million contract he signed in 2006, might be the NFL’s top return man.

    He averages 16.3 yards on 16 punt returns, including a 67-yard touchdown. Cribbs averages 26.3 yards on kickoffs this season, but led the league with an average of 30.7 yards in 2007.

    Cribbs leads the league with 877 kick-return yards and 260 punt-return yards.

    He has five touchdowns on kickoff returns in five seasons. He has seven total TDs on returns.

    Cribbs also averages 9.3 yards on nine carries and can play out of the Wildcat formation.

    Last Thursday, coach Tony Sparano said a player with special abilities as a returner would interest him, even if the player didn’t have a big role anywhere else.

    “I would say this, if we had a guy that I felt had that rare ability, I think it is a rare ability I really do like [Dave] Meggett type of ability, those people…. You can bet I would find a place for that guy,” Sparano said. “When you are looking at those type of players, you try to find places for them.”

    The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Cribbs would cost the Dolphins a draft pick or two and/or possibly a player with big-play ability, like Ted Ginn Jr., who has been up and down during his three seasons.

    Cribbs, 26, also would need a new contract.

    Ginn had a 53-yard TD catch Monday night. With Chad Henne at quarterback, he could begin to become the down-field threat Miami envision when it used the No. 9 pick on him in 2007.

    With Pat Cobbs out with a knee injury, Ginn will get another crack at returning kickoffs. He hasn’t made the expected impact there, but he’s eager to try.

    “I still think I’m one of the greats in the business doing it,” he said this week. “I just haven’t had the opportunity to do it.”

    If Cleveland is willing to part with Cribbs, bet the Dolphins to strongly consider it. This is a chance a team on the rise would not want to miss.
    Interesting. Having Cribbs means return game = solved. But how much do you give up for a guy like that?

    Well it looks like the Dolphins have the most interest in him. It all depends on what Cribbs wants. Money or a chance at a ring.
    MAKE WHOOLIES!!!

    It's not up to Cribbs where he goes though.

    Cribbs wants a restructured contract and the Browns have no interest in doing so, so he's asking for a trade.

    If DJ is on the block then why not do a 3 way trade for bothr Cribbs and Gin JR? Im sure we can find someone else to offer to get a O lineman. Yeah, we would have to give up a draft pick or so but they would be a low ones. I think! lol jmhop

    Cribbs would be a nice addition, but not for a high draft pick, IMO.
    RIP My son. I will miss you eternally!!!

    As in we get Ginn, Miami gets Cribbs, and the Browns get DJ?

    I don't know. On one hand, we could use a fast receiver, but on the other Ginn has been kind of a bust for Miami so far in his career. I guess DJ hasn't exactly done what we had hoped of him either though. I don't know that Ginn is good enough to be a WR2 I'd be happy with.
