NAPA, Calif. (AP) - There's no arguing that Josh Cribbs will go down as one of the top special teams players in NFL history. He already shares the record for career kickoff return touchdowns and has done pretty well as a punt returner over the years.
One of the Raiders' most significant offseason acquisitions, Cribbs can still get down the field with the best of them. He was fourth in the league in kickoff return average in 2012 and was sixth in punt returns.
Cribbs might also be one of the only return men in the league who doubles on coverage units - and that's something Oakland coach Dennis Allen fully intends to exploit.
That's perfectly fine with the 30-year-old Cribbs, who relishes making tackles on special teams as much as he does getting into the end zone.
