After inking a one-year with the Oakland Raiders earlier this week, wide receiver and kick returner Josh Cribbs spoke with the Oakland media about the recovery process after undergoing surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his left knee after the 2012 season.
In particular, Cribbs addressed comments made by New York Jets general manager John Idzik, where Idzik said Cribbs's knee "isn't quite there yet" after working out the former member of the Cleveland Browns.
Cribbs, after stating that he'll be ready for football by the time the regular season rolls around in September, said this about Idzik's comments:
I don't know why the Jets GM would come out and say that other than use it as a negotiation tactic. It was well perceived and I think, as a whole, everyone kind of understood what was going on about that.
In 2012 with the Browns, Cribbs totaled 1,178 yards in kickoff returns and another 457 in punt return yardage. He also caught seven passes for 63 yards in 16 games.
