Crayton's Agent to Ask For Release

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Patrick Crayton is ticketed for a fourth or fifth receiver role this season. With his $2 million base salary, that puts the 31-year old on the bubble of making the 53-man roster.

With a contract that doesn't appeal to other NFL teams, the Cowboys are unlikely to find a team willing to trade for Crayton. Sensing that, his agent will ask the Cowboys to release him, Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports.

"It seems he doesn't figure in their plans so it's not logical to be on the roster until Saturday," Fred Lyles said on Thursday night. "We don't see the use in prolonging it."

A seventh-round pick (216th overall) in 2004 out of Northwest Oklahoma State, Crayton has been a part-time starter for the 'Boys, catching 196 passes for 2,888 yards and 23 touchdowns. Last season, Crayton averaged over 12 yards on punt returns, an average boosted by a pair of touchdowns from over 70 yards.
