Browns veteran Josh Cribbs was working toward a free-agent deal with the Arizona Cardinals late Wednesday night. His agent J.R. Rickert, however, told The Plain Dealer no deal has been struck.

That did not stop the popular special teams ace from bidding his farewell to Browns fans through social media.

“It's been a blessing to be in Cleveland, wishing the best to the city & the Team. If I could stay I would,” Cribbs wrote on his Instagram account that included a collage of pictures. "I proved I would die for this ... that I would give 110 percent every game. That the community was just as important as the field. So if it's my time to go, at least it's in good hands."
