2013 NFL Free Agency: Josh Cribbs to reportedly visit the Giants today

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

According to reports, free-agent receiver/kick returner Josh Cribbs will reportedly visit the New York Giants today. Cribbs played his first eight seasons with the Cleveland Browns.

According to Mike Florio of PFT, the Giants, as well as other teams, showed interest in Cribbs early on in the offseason, but a knee injury set him back in the process. Now that he's healthy Cribbs is still looking for a team, and the Giants still seem to be interested.

Former Giants receiver Domenik Hixon recently signed with the Carolina Panthers. Cribbs could be used as a potential replacement. Also with a bigger role likely being given to David Wilson in the backfield, Cribbs could be a help with kick returns as that was Wilson's job in 2012.

Cribbs served mostly as a kick returner for the Browns. In his career as a receiver Cribbs has 107 receptions for 1,161 yards and seven touchdowns. If the Giants decide to take him in he could be a good fit for the special teams and it gives the offense another option behind Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and Rueben Randle.

What do you think? Should the Giants consider or pass on Cribbs?
