Browns Offseason News: Special Teams Coach Chris Tabor Speaks On Joshua Cribbs' Role

Cleveland Browns special teams coach Chris Tabor addressed the speculation Wednesday that Cleveland is easing Joshua Cribbs out of his special teams role. But Tabor didn't explicitly refute the notion that rookies Travis Benjamin and Jordan Norwood would be seeing their fair share action in the punt return game.

"I think that's a silly issue to talk about," said special teams coach Chris Tabor. "I think that's silly. He's still a threat and well-respected in this league.

Cribbs notched the 11th return touchdown of his career last season, but it was his first in 30 games. As he gets older, the Browns may look to preserve his health by taking him off special teams. Benjamin averaged over 11 yards per punt return in two of his four years at Miami, including one touchdown.
