Cribbs, trying to renegotiate his contract, missed the first two days, but met with coach Eric Mangini following the full team meeting. Mangini wasn't sure if Cribbs would take part in team workouts later in the day.
"I look forward to him being out there," said Mangini, who declined to say whether he would be open to renegotiating the final four years on Cribbs' six-year, $6.7 million deal. "These are voluntary camps, so it's not a mandatory situation. Everybody has to make the decision whether to attend or not. But I can tell you there is a ton of information going in, and it's an opportunity for us to see all the different players. When you're here, you get those reps. When you're not, you don't."
Cribbs' agent, J.R. Rickert, has said the club's previous management team made promises to renegotiate with the former Pro Bowler. Cribbs is scheduled to make $620,000, $635,000, $650,000 and $790,000 over the next four years.
Rickert said he has had some dialogue with the team, but said talks "have not been meaningful."
"(Quinn) has done a really outstanding job in the offseason program," Mangini said. "Not that Derek hasn't done well, but I thought (Quinn) got the edge, so he took the first reps. There's no overwhelming significance to that. The goal is balance."
