Patrick Crayton | Cowboys (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=dal)

Top (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/#TOP) Email (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/#)
http://a.espncdn.com/i/headshots/nfl/players/65/5741.jpg (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5741) Patrick Crayton (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5741) took leave from the Dallas Cowboys (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=dal)' offseason program after the team drafted Dez Bryant (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=13215) in the first round in April. Fred Lyles, Crayton's agent, has been given permission to seek a trade for his client, but nothing has yet materialized. According to the Dallas Morning News (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/spt/football/cowboys/stories/051210dnspocowlede.3f6b91e.html), Cowboys QB Tony Romo (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5209) would prefer having Crayton around, but "I understand his situation."
As for the teams that might be interested in adding Crayton, it should be noted that Crayton is a willing and able participant in special teams in addition to his role as a WR. One team that is nearly bankrupt (http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/features/rumors?date=20100503#4729) at the WR position is the Cleveland Browns (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=cle), and because of the new management regime of Mike Holmgren and Tom Heckert, the roster has been quite fluid this offseason thus far. Aside from the Browns, the Jacksonville Jaguars (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=tam), Carolina Panthers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=car) (although he is 31-years-old), Buffalo Bills (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=buf) and Kansas City Chiefs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan) all make sense on some levels, although we haven't been able to confirm any interest from any team with our own reporters.
Ben Rogers of ESPNDallas.com thinks trading Crayton away would be a colossal mistake for the 'Boys:

No thanks...we already have enough underachieving WR's.

I don't think it would be a bad thing. A WR with some experience in winning to help show our young pups what it's about.

I'd give a 5th or later for him

He sucks and he's a shitty teammate. No.

heck ya, for cheap! I like McCluster but he's not gonna solve the WR problem on his own. If we could get him cheap I would pull the trigger on it.

Isn't he one of the guys that's badmouthed Haley in the not to distant past.

No thanks. This is the guy that the Cowboys have been waiting for him to turn it on....and he never has.

I've never heard anything on him being a bad teammate. I always thought he comes off as a hard worker who will get in on special teams. Terrance Copper with some speed, route running, and pass catching ability.:shrug:

PhilFree:arrow:

oh, if that's true then nevermind. I don't follow the cowgirls too much, all I really know about him is that he was supposed to be good but he's not working out or something.

You know what, nevermind my previous statement. I wouldn't want him, the Cowboys offense is pretty good and if he can't catch passes on that offense then I wouldn't want him for this one. I retract my previous statement.

This is what Michael Lombardi had to say about Crayton last year. shrug

Patrick Crayton has gone down faster than any player Iíve seen in a very long time. He has no juice left in his legs, appears to have lost his quickness and doesnít show any skills that make him tough to cover. Heís easily covered by any teamís fourth of fifth corner right now.

Just noticed he's 31. Make it a conditional 6th or 7th or wait until they cut him.

i don't know what he would bring to the table that uber slot receiver Dexter McCluster won't.

He would have to give us more that Lance Long or Quinten Lawrence being we drafted guys to take their role on the team.

Did Haley have a problem with him in Dallas?

This guy HATES Todd Haley. He was bitching about how Todd didn't allow the wr's to play naturally because he was always in their face for every mistake they made etc, etc.

Not happening in KC, wouldn't want him anyway. He has never done shit in the NFL, not sure why this even warrants a conversation.

Dude is a waste of a roster spot.

Would you please agree with me so we can be sure it won't happen?

I wouldn't give a conditional 12th round pick for a 31 year-old never was

After further review I agree. I got a bit wrapped up in Patrick Crayton the fantasy football player who helped me periodically in 2007.

That year he had a huge game with 7 rec, 184 yards and 2 TD's. Looks like he's had a total of one good game since then.

The only thing he adds to the team is his punt returning ability. At 31 not sure how much he would have left of that. Give it a pass.

That's the stupidest thing I ever heard.

I don't give a rat's ass what team a player has played with before.

I suppose you hated Marcus Allen.

To answer the OP, I have no interest.

We already have enough underachievers on this roster.

After looking it up he played his rookie year at 25 years old. I thought he was like 27-28.
