So maybe "losing out" is a little bit of a stretch, but the Patriots were pursuing him and at one point were the favorites to sign him. Perhaps the Danny Amendola signing had them a little less interested. Amendola can be a returner too, though not Josh Cribbs caliber. This is probably a good sign for Jeff Demps.
Anyway, Cribbs has had several concussions and if he gets one more we could be getting into Austin Collie territory. Not the best thing to say about someone you want to bring in to charge into a stampede of overgrown athletic dudes. When I think about Josh Cribbs, I think about these two hits.
