NFL News: Josh Cribbs to sign with the New York Jets

According to CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora, former Brown Josh Cribbs has signed with the New York Jets.


The Jets are 3-3 coming off of a home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are 27th in the league in average kick return yards. WR Clyde Gates has been their primary kick returner, and he was injured in Sunday’s game. Gates suffered a shoulder injury and was due for an MRI on Monday.

Cribbs holds the NFL record with eight career kick-off returns for touchdowns. Josh signed in Oakland during training camp but was released prior to the regular season.
