Browns receiver Joshua Cribbs was named AFC special teams player of the month for December and January, the NFL announced. Cribbs was recently named to his second Pro Bowl as the conference's kick returner.
In December and January, Cribbs returned 17 kickoffs for a 31.0 average with touchdowns of 100 and 103 yards. With those two TDs at Kansas City, he became the second player in league history to return two for scores of at least 100 yards in a single game.
That day, Cribbs also became the NFL record-holder for most career kickoff returns for TDs, now with eight. His 305 total return yards and 269 kickoff return yards against the Chiefs both ranked as the fourth-highest single-game totals in league history.
Also in December/January, Cribbs returned 14 punts for a 9.7 average, rushed 25 times for 201 yards (8.0 average) with one touchdown and caught three passes for 18 yards.
Cribbs won the same award twice in 2007, his other Pro Bowl year.
The Browns also announced roster moves, signing several players as free agents for 2010. All but offensive lineman Scott Kooistra finished the season on the Browns’ practice squad.
Also signed were offensive lineman Jason Capizzi, running back Jed Collins, defensive linemen Keith Grennan and Jonathan Lewis, offensive lineman Pat Murray and defensive back Materral Richardson.
