Raiders release KR specialist Cribbs

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.
