Impending free agent KR Josh Cribbs has yet to hear from the Browns about the possibility of a new contract.

Cribbs is in the final year of the pay bump extracted from president Mike Holmgren during NFL Network's "Pay the Man" campaign back in 2009-10. Rookie Travis Benjamin was named AFC special teams player of the week on the strength of an electric 93-yard punt return. New owner Jimmy Haslem and CEO Joe Banner have no loyalty to Cribbs, who turns 30 in the offseason. With the future of kickoff returns up in the air, Cribbs' NFL future is cloudy.
