49ers should sign Cribbs

News broke Saturday afternoon that the 49ers are interested in signing Josh Cribbs. Good for the Niners. They absolutely should sign him.

I always have liked Cribbs. He’s a premier special teams player, able to cover and return punts and kicks. He can also stretch the field as a wide receiver, or catch passes out of the backfield. He was a quarterback at Kent State, too, and he’s very knowledgeable of offensive systems. Who knows? Maybe he could be the Niners’ third-string quarterback.

As a wide out, Cribbs needs to work on running better routes. He wasn’t coached that well in Cleveland and the Browns never really could decide how to use him.

He would be a tremendous all-purpose weapon for the Niners. Sign him, Trent.
