Browns Pro Bowl returner Joshua Cribbs said negotations on a new contract were ''going really well'' during an interview on WKNR's ''Really Big Show'' Thursday morning.

Cribbs said he hopes to have a new deal before the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, which opens on Feb. 24.

''I'm satisfied how they're moving and how quickly it's moving,'' Cribbs said. ''I've been getting updates all throughout the Pro Bowl, when I was out of town, I met with my agents. They were talking to (general manager Tom) Heckert.

''(President Mike) Holmgren has reached out and made a huge effort to get it done. He said he wanted me to play here. I'll be even happier once it's finalized.''

Cribbs, the former Kent State quarterback who entered the league as an undrafted free agent, has three years remaining on his current contract, which was signed in November, 2006.

Show host Tony Rizzo comment on the fact that Cribbs was sporting a Sponge Bob Band-Air under his chin after accidentally getting hit during the Pro Bowl.

Cribbs said he will honor his commitment to donate his Pro Bowl check to the relief fund for Haiti. He said his donation, which was tied to the number of Twitter followers he gained, will be $17,888.
