Multiple media outlets reported Friday that the Browns and RS-WR Josh Cribbs have agreed on a new three-year contract. The Browns are tearing up Cribbs' old deal, which ran through 2012 as well.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, the contract is worth up to $20 million, and Cribbs will receive about $7.5 million in guaranteed money.

Cribbs, 26, is one of the Browns' most valuable players, and certainly, he is their most versatile. He has returned more kickoffs for touchdowns (eight) than any other player in NFL history, and he also has returned a pair of punts for scores in his five-year career. He returned three kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns in 2009. Cribbs also plays wide receiver for the Browns, and he is a dangerous runner as a quarterback in 'Wildcat' packages.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Cribbs was named to the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s as a returner. He signed a six-year contract with Cleveland in 2007, but he became dissatisfied with the deal not long after signing it.
