Cribbs would be a good fit on either the Raiders or the Jets. He's a pretty good receiver.

That is honestly surprising. Could mean the end for Joe McKnight as a member of the Jets.


I don't think McKnight will get cut if they sign Cribbs. Lets face it the jets need all the weapons they can get. McKnight has had some very good games when he is given the chance. He rushed for over 100 yards against the Bills. He can be a very good RB if they ever gave him the ball. I also feel that the fumble problem is not as a big deal as the media and fans make it out to be. Adding Cribbs would give us another good return man who can be a #2 or #3 WR.

He won't be cut right away, but he'll be on edge all training camp. And he should be. Two different coordinators were unable to work him into a regular role for the offense. He shows up to camp out of shape every year, and the fumble issues are NOT being overblown. With the limited amount of touches he gets there should be no reason he drops the ball as much as he does.

He has talent, and you would like to see him given the chance to be a nice receiving back/complimentary speed back in the Jets new offense. But he's got to prove he deserves a roster spot. He needs to condition his body to be ready to take hits, and in the process hold on to the football. He needs to make an impact in training camp, he was set to be the 3rd down back last season but lost the job to Bilal Powell.

Yeah. He'd be as good as Schaub.

Cribbs reportedly left the Jets without a contract.

Kaluka wouldn't let that happen.

If they put Big Mac sauce on the ball, I bet he won't fumble!

Wouldn't mind him in Detroit. He'd be a considerable upgrade for our return game, and WR depth is never bad. The concussion worries me though.

He passed his physical in Oakland. IIRC his knee was the reason he failed in Arizona.
