I published an article Tuesday night breaking down whether the Cleveland Browns should re-sign Joshua Cribbs to a new contract. In that article, I casually mentioned that Cribbs raked in $2.688 million, which was data that I obtained from Spotrac, a place that does a good job at accumulating contract data for NFL players.
The first comment that I received in that thread was, "I didn’t realize he was that cheap." That triggered a thought in my mind -- why wasn't the value higher than $2.688 million? Everyone should remember the heated negotiations that took place between Cribbs and former team president Mike Holmgren back in 2010. Cribbs had a deal signed through 2012, but wanted his deal restructured.
