Disgruntled Browns Pro Bowl special teamer Joshua Cribbs attended Thursday's full-squad meeting and met with coach Eric Mangini afterward, Mangini said.
Mangini was unsure whether Cribbs would participate in the final day of this week's voluntary three-day minicamp. Cribbs is seeking to renegotiate a seven-year, $6.67 million contract extension he signed in November, 2006.
Cribbs' agent J.R. Rickert said Cribbs is feeling underappreciated and has indicated Cribbs would ask for a trade if he doesn't see significant progress in the talks.
''Josh is a guy I've had good talks with since I've been here,'' Mangini said. ''I talked to him here this morning. I spent some time with him. These are voluntary camps. But there's a ton of information going in and it's an opportujnity for us to see a lot of different players.''
Asked if Cribbs' absence could scuttle a plan to use the former Kent State quarterback on defense, Mangini said, ''Just like everything else, if you're trying something new you've got to see how it works.''
