Big Blue will “work him out and examine his surgically repaired knee,” the New York Daily News reported.

Cribbs had arthroscopic knee surgery during the offseason to repair a torn meniscus. He reportedly failed his physical with the Cardinals in March after closing in on an agreement with Arizona. The returner-slash-receiver recently passed a physical in Oakland, according to the NFL Network.

It’ll be Cribbs’ second straight day in the Garden State. He reportedly visited with the Jets on Wednesday.

“The Jets discussed parameters of a deal but did not make a formal offer,” the Daily News reported.

The 29-year-old has played his entire eight-year career in Cleveland, where he totaled eight kickoff and three punt returns for touchdowns. He averaged 27.4 yards per kickoff and 12.0 on punts but was kept out of the end zone in 2012.

Cribbs also caught seven passes for 63 yards last season. His best year as a receiver came in 2011, when he had 41 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns.

Linebacker Aaron Curry will also work out with the Giants on Thursday, though neither player is “likely to immediately be offered a contract,” according to the Daily News.
