In the wake of Josh Cribbs skipping last week's voluntary minicamp due to issues surrounding his contract, there may be a slight shift in the tenor of the situation.
In a statement sent to The OBR via text message, agent J.R. Rickert said the following:
"Joshua Cribbs will report to practice on Tuesday. He is making this good faith effort to show everyone just how important this is to him. He will continue to communicate with the Browns on a regular basis and we are optimistic that there will be a fair solution."
It's unknown at this time whether progress has been made on a new deal -- which Cribbs is seeking -- or if there has simply been "meaningful dialogue" -- which Cribbs is also seeking.
