Free agent wide receiver and return specialist Josh Cribbs is reportedly drawing interest from the Jaguars.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will likely have a few new faces on special teams this year, especially in the return game, and if ESPN's Jeremy Fowler is right, it could be right here in Florida.

Cribbs' best receiving season came in 2011 when he had 41 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns. That's nearly half his entire output from his 10-year career.

He's definitely a return specialist, with 11 touchdowns on kick returns and punt returns in his career.

Cribbs came into the league in 2005 and spent his first eight seasons in Cleveland. In the past two seasons he has bounced around from the Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, and most recently with the Indianapolis Colts.

He had 19 kick returns last year for a 32-yard average and a 76-yard long, but his last score came in 2011 on an 84-yard punt return.

For a guy who's between returning kicks in the NFL and retirement, Cribbs sure is garnering a lot of interest.
