The Cleveland Browns are not expected to re-sign Josh Cribbs when free agency opens, according to a report.

Cleveland Browns kick and punt return specialist Josh Cribbs might call another city home in 2013. According to Fox Sports, Cribbs has drawn interest from multiple teams throughout the league, and his days in Cleveland "appear numbered."

Agents for impending free agents are free to talk to NFL teams throughout the league as of Saturday morning, but no deals can be officially agreed to and signed until free agency opens March 12.

Cribbs has spent his entire eight-year professional career with Cleveland. Cribbs' role on offense was most significant in 2011, when he had 67 targets and 41 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns.

Cribbs, however, is known for his kick and punt returns. Cribbs has eight career kickoff returns for touchdowns and more than 10,000 kickoff return yards, but has not returned a kickoff for a touchdown since 2009. Cribbs also has returned three punts for touchdowns, with 2,154 career punt return yards.

Per Fox Sports' report, Cribbs will be signed as both a wide receiver and kick returner, and will be a part of his new team's offensive attack.
