The Raiders made receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs an offer last week at the outset of his post-Cleveland U.S. tour. After visiting three other teams, Cribbs has decided to accept it.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Cribbs has agreed to terms with the Raiders.

Cribbs also visited the Giants, Jets, and Lions. Jets G.M. John Idzik recently said that Cribbs’ injured knee “isn’t quite there yet,” which in all fairness could be a reaction to Cribbs’ belief that the Jets’ offer wasn’t quite there yet.

Cribbs leaves the Browns after eight seasons. His full role in Oakland isn’t yet known; the former Kent State quarterback initially made his mark as a return specialist, but he never fully became the kind of weapon on offense the Browns thought/hoped he’d be.
