Is Crayton about to get jobbed by the Cowboys?

The Cowboys are set at wide receiver. Dez Bryant is healthy (though not playing Thursday night). Roy Williams is inexplicably entrenched in the team’s plans. Miles Austin is a bona fide No. 1. Kevin Ogletree, while inconsistent, shows great acceleration and change-of-direction quickness as a catch-and-run weapon. P. Crayton (US Presswire)

This stability translates to insecurity for Patrick Crayton. As in job insecurity. Tim McMahon of ESPN Dallas says that Crayton is on the trading block. And, if there are no takers, the veteran could simply be cut Saturday night.

If that scenario indeed plays out, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more egregious stab in the back this season. Crayton, you may recall, was granted permission to seek a trade back in spring after Dallas drafted Bryant. When no teams bit, Crayton requested his release. That request was declined.

Crayton, relegated to No. 4 duties at best, publicly voiced his displeasure with his situation during the offseason. But in the end, he reported to camp and was a good soldier. Though still unhappy with his role, Crayton has willingly accepted it in the spirit of team chemistry. 

Admirbale character aside, it’s important to remember that Crayton is a solid special teams contributor and, arguably, Dallas’ third most dependable wideout (Ogletree has been a disappointment in recent months; Roy Williams is more talented but also more mistake-prone).

Yes, Crayton’s $2 million salary is a bit hefty for someone at the bottom of the depth chart – but it’s obviously not unworkable in an uncapped year. And what about simple respect for a veteran who has mostly overachieved in his previous six seasons? Crayton’s value as a free agent was greater in spring than it would be at this point. Why back-stab a solid player who can still help your aspiring Super Bowl club? If the Cowboys are wise, they won’t.
