In The Region:

A pair of popular and productive Cleveland Brown’s players are leaving the struggling team:  Phil Dawson and Josh Cribbs. Long-time Brown’s kicker Dawson has signed a deal with the reigning NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers. The Pro-Bowler had been with the Browns since 1999 when the team returned to the league. Kick returner and occasional pass receiver Cribbs, like Dawson, is leaving the team through free-agency. The Kent State product is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals.  That deal is on hold pending results of his recent knee surgery. Jim Donovan is sports director at WKYC Channel 3.He says the departure of the two players gives the re-building team a chance to invest extra money in good players who spend more time on the field.

“Dawson and Cribbs are players that played a very small part of the game, though a very important part. They were only on the field for a small number of plays. What the team needs are good offensive and defensive players who are out there for 40, 50 or 60 snaps a game.”

Dawson and Cribbs are leaving a Browns team that won only 5 games last season. Donovan says going to San Francisco should give Dawson a chance to kick in some important games. In his 14-years with the Browns, there have only been 2 winning seasons.
