Cleveland Browns Training Camp Update: Tony Grossi Says There are No Plans for Wildcat

As always, Tony Grossi offers up his opinions on the day that was at Cleveland Browns training camp, but one note sticks out more than others:

Josh Cribbs confirmed what we reported about coach Pat Shurmur in March. “He’s not a big fan of the Wildcat,” Cribbs said. “But he is a big fan of getting me the football.” Cribbs stopped short of detailing the plans for getting him the ball, but he did say he could be running patterns out of the backfield “more times than not.” Cribbs had a pretty good day catching the ball Friday as a conventional receiver. He also took a pitchout from Colt McCoy and fired a sideline completion to Brian Robiskie.

As long as the Browns find a way to get Cribbs the ball, there’s really nothing to see here. Mainly, when I read the headline I was scared a bit because Cribbs is one of the Browns’ best weapons, though oddly enough he’s never really been a great receiver. If they can make him into a solid receiver out of the backfield, he should be able to consistently make plays and maybe even on a more regular basis than before.

As for now, though, it sounds like the Wildcat may be a thing of the past for the Cleveland Browns.
