Currently second in the AFC in kickoff return yardage, Cleveland Browns returner Joshua Cribbs leads all AFC special teams players in Pro Bowl votes through 12 weeks of play, as reported by Cincy Jungle.

The 29-year-old Cribbs has yet to score a touchdown on special teams this season, but has racked up three punt return scores and eight kickoff return touchdowns since entering the league in 2005. He ranks second in the NFL in punt return yards with 357, behind only Buffalo's Leodis McKelvin, and is the current NFL leader in total special teams yards with 1,209 combined after 11 games.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection as a returner in 2007 and 2009, Cribbs's 52,880 votes rank slightly below the latest total of San Francisco returner C.J. Spillman's 55,426 over in the NFC. While Cribbs is the only Browns player atop the voting leaderboards at the moment, he is one of nine players representing the NFC North.
