    Barring an unexpected and unforeseen change of heart over the next 24 hours or so, Browns WR/KR Joshua Cribbs will not be participating in the first "voluntary" full-team minicamp of the Eric Mangini Era. Cribbs' agent, J.R. Rickert refused to comment on the status of his client or how contract talks have progressed. However, a source familiar with the situation says that talks between the two sides on a new deal "have gone nowhere. Absolutely nowhere" and the last time the Browns spoke to Rickert regarding Cribbs' contract was a week ago. One Browns source stated that "the team is having a hard time figuring out a value to place on what Josh brings to the team. He's obviously a tremendous football player, a tremendous asset to the team and to the city, but we all just have to find some type of way to gauge financially what is acceptable in relation to what he does and to the [salary] cap."
