Josh Cribbs Will Continue To Be Used As A Receiver, According To Pat Shurmur

Cleveland Browns wide receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs should expect to see more time as a receiver, said head coach Pat Shurmur at Monday's press conference.

"He's going to be active, and he's going to be a returner. That being the case, he's going to lineup and play receiver at times. Obviously they don't all go every single snap, and there are times when we play three or four wide outs. I think it's realistic that he's going to get his snaps at receiver, much like he did last year. If he's on the field, then he has a chance to produce."

Cribbs has amassed over 10,000 total kick and punt return yards in his seven-year NFL career, but just under 1,100 receiving yards. In addition, he has more kick and punt return touchdowns (eight) than receiving touchdowns (seven). However, his receiving numbers have gone up every year since 2009, culminating with 41 catches for 518 yards and four scores in 2011.
