Browns receiver/returner/wildcat quarterback Joshua Cribbs elaborated Thursday on his comments on SIRIUS NFL Radio that he wants his contract renegotiated before the end of the season.
"I feel like if there's any person who would deserve a contract I feel like they would have to play and earn it first, then you should get it,'' Cribbs said. ''I feel like I've outplayed my current contract and things should be done.''
Seeking a new deal since last season when then-general manager Phil Savage was in charge, Cribbs feels he handled his situation in the right way. His current contract, for six years and $6.77 million, runs through 2012.
''I didn't cause a problem in the locker room, I just put my head down and played,'' Cribbs said. ''That's what Phil Savage told me last year. Then we had a new regime come in, they told me the same thing. I bit my tongue and went in and played again for them. Hopefully this time I get something done.''
Cribbs is worried that he man soon be dealing with another new regime.
''I'm kinda scared about that,'' he said. ''I don't know how many years I'm going to have to put my head down. But I keep going for the fans, they want to see us win. Just got to get it done.''
