After the Cowboys selected Dez Bryant in the first round of this past April’s NFL draft, the depth chart at the wide receiver position in Dallas began to get a little crowded.
One player who is feeling the pinch is six-year veteran Patrick Crayton.
And despite the fact that he is scheduled to make $2 million in 2010, Crayton wants out.
Per a report from Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, Crayton plans to stay away from the Cowboys’ organized team activities this week in Valley Ranch as he continues to seek a trade. The 31-year-old from Northwestern Oklahoma State skipped last week’s OTAs as well.
With Pro Bowler Miles Austin and the overpriced, underperforming Roy Williams already on the roster, Crayton would likely see his snaps decrease in 2010 as the Cowboys will also be working Bryant into the mix on Sundays as well.
However, its doubtful that Cowboys fans will even notice Crayton is gone. In six years with the team, the wideout has only caught more than 39 passes in a season just one time (2007) and has never totaled more than 697 receiving yards.
