Kickoff return specialist Josh Cribbs was released by the
Oakland Raiders on Sunday in a wave of team cuts.
Cribbs had knee surgery in the offseason and signed with the
Raiders after eight seasons with the Cleveland Browns. But the
29-year-old struggled to regain his speed in training camp. He also
fumbled a kickoff in Friday’s preseason loss to the Chicago
Cribbs’ contract was terminated by the Raiders, leaving him free
to sign with any team.
Also released were: linebackers Keenan Clayton and Eric Harper,
fullback Jon Hoese, wide receivers Sam McGuffie, Tray Session and
Isaiah Williams, guard Andrew Robiskie, cornerback Cory Nelms and
defensive tackle Myles Wade.
