Akron Beacon Journal/Marla Ridenour:

Disgruntled Pro Bowl special teamer Joshua Cribbs intends to report on time to Browns’ training camp Friday, but still hopes to renegotiate his six-year, $6.7 million contract that has four years remaining, a source said Saturday.

The first full-squad practice is scheduled for Aug. 1.

The source said Cribbs’ agent J.R. Rickert has had discussions with the Browns and plans to continue those talks in Cleveland this week.

Cribbs’ base salary is $620,000 for 2009. The former Kent State quarterback is the franchise’s all-time kickoff return leader. In his four-year career, he’s returned five kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns. His 25.2 kickoff return average in 2008 ranked 16th in the league.
