On March 13, it was reported that Browns kick returner Josh Cribbs had agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals. After those reports were refuted the following day, everything fell silent on the Cribbs front. Last we heard, Cribbs hadn't joined the Cardinals, but was heading out to team headquarters over the weekend to take a physical.
Now it appears we are back to square one, because Cribbs failed that physical, sources have told ESPN Cleveland's Will Burge.
According to Cribbs' agent, J.R. Rickert, he failed the physical because he hasn't completely healed from offseason meniscus surgery. Rickert added he expects the Cardinals to give Cribbs another physical in a few weeks and possibly sign him once he clears this final hurdle.
OK then. I guess we'll check back on Cribbs' status in April. I can't really say if going to Arizona would be a net positive or negative move for Cribbs' fantasy value. He was never much of a fantasy asset in Cleveland. His best year came in 2011 when he caught 41 passes for 518 yards and four touchdowns. I wouldn't expect him to match those numbers playing with the Cardinals -- a team that has three quality wideouts and zero quality quarterbacks.
