Cleveland Browns' Josh Cribbs atop Pro Bowl voting for return specialists

Josh Cribbs leads all AFC special teams players in Pro Bowl voting through the NFL's first 14 weeks.

No, 2012 hasn't been a wildly successful year for the Cleveland Browns, but once again, Joshua Cribbs serves as a bright spot. Cribbs currently leads Pro Bowl voting for special teams players in the AFC, with over 86,000 votes.

Cribbs hasn't been as spectacular as he has been in years past, however. Cribbs has returned 33 punts on the season for 424 yards, but has not returned a punt for a touchdown yet this season. Cribbs also has not returned a kickoff for a touchdown yet. He has, however, returned 32 kickoffs for 885 yards through Cleveland's first 13 games.

Cleveland's rookie sensation Trent Richardson is almost certainly not going to catch Houston Texans running back Arian Foster for the AFC's leading vote-getter at running back. Foster, who has been mentioned in the NFL MVP race this season, trails only Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in Pro Bowl voting, and leads all running backs, including Adrian Peterson, in fan voting.
