The Cleveland Browns are unlikely to pay pending free agent Josh Cribbs the money he's looking for, a source close to Cribbs told NFL.com's Aditi Kinkhabwala.

The wide receiver and kick-return specialist is seeking to be paid between $1.8 million to $2 million a year, per Kinkhabwala.

The San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers both have expressed interest in the eight-year NFL veteran, Kinkhabwala reported, while the Browns could find a cheaper replacement in Darius Reynaud, who had three return touchdowns for the Tennessee Titans this past season.

Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reported that Cribbs' agent, J.R. Rickert, would meet with Browns representatives at the NFL Scouting Combine to discuss resigning Cribbs to a new contract.
