CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora also tweeted Cribbs to the Cardinals could be premature.

Cribbs took to Twitter on Wednesday night and thanked the Browns organization, signaling he's indeed leaving.

He posted a career-high 41 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns in 2011, but finished with just seven catches last season.
