Browns receiver Josh Cribbs flew to Arizona Sunday night to visit with the Cardinals, take a physical and possibly sign with the club, a league source said. If all goes as Cribbs hopes, he'll be a Cardinal by Monday, the source said. Cribbs, an eight-year veteran of the Browns and three-time Pro Bowler, knew Wednesday that he was gone, and sent a message to his fans via his Twitter and Instagram accounts. On Twitter, he wrote, "It's been a blessing to be in Cleveland, wishing the best to the city and the team.'' On Instagram, he posted photos with the following captions: * "I proved I would die for this...'' * "That I would give 110% 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.'' Cribbs, 29, wanted to finish his career in Cleveland, but the new regime wasn't serious about re-signing him. During his time with the Browns, Cribbs returned eight kickoffs for touchdowns, which is tied for first in NFL history with Leon Washington. He also amassed 12,169 combined kickoff and punt return yards, becoming just the sixth player in NFL history to reach the 12,000-yard plateau. In the season finale against Pittburgh, he surpassed Dennis Northcutt to become the Browns' all-time leader in punt return yardage with 2,154 yards.
