Crayton/Hurd being shopped?!

WTF?! WHY?????

Cowboys shopping Crayton, Hurd

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have given agent Fred Lyles permission to seek a trade for wide receiver Patrick Crayton, according to a source.


More on the Cowboys

Calvin Watkins and Tim MacMahon have the Cowboys blanketed for ESPNDallas.com. Check in with their constantly updated coverage. Blog

The Cowboys are shopping two wide receivers after selecting Dez Bryant in the first round of NFL draft Thursday night. Sam Hurd was placed on the trading block after his agent, Ian Greengross, expressed concerns over his client's role with the team.

As of now, the Cowboys' depth chart has Miles Austin, Roy Williams, Crayton, Kevin Ogletree, Manuel Johnson, Jesse Holley and Hurd.

Crayton most likely will lose the punt returner job to Bryant as well as his spot on the depth chart as the No. 3 wideout.

With the club seeking more playing time for Ogletree, that further puts Crayton's status with the team in doubt.

CANADIANS = DOUCHERS

Bryant will do punt returns, Roy in the slot as #3. I think Roy should go, but this is my take. Jerry just gave him a $9 million roster bonus. He is going to keep him this year, then dump him. Ogletree is waiting in the wings and has serious potential. He has caught everything tossed his way so far.


Shedding crayton and hurd would help get ogletree more time, and I would be willig to bet he beats Roy out this year. Crayton has some value. I'd think Hurd has a tiny bit of value. However they hit the block last night and nobody moved on them. Carpenter and Spears are also being offered up on the block.


I'm VERY happy with the draft, and they will be hard to beat. The rest of the holes will be addressed in FA. Faneca is an option, as is Flozell. He only got cut due to the fat check he was due this year. They can resign him for peanuts. Sharper is also available and IMO, better than any of the safeties in the draft.

Not too concerned really. Bryant looks to be a pretty damn good receiver and when Roy Williams actually gets the ball in his hands, he is decent. Ogletree also has the potential to be great.

I think you mean "when the ball doesn't bounce off Roy Williams' hand-shaped skillets, he is halfway average," right? He has totally gone to shit.

Like I said, I support it. Crayton has a big mouth and nothing to back it up with. He makes a good #3. Trying to force him in to a #3 role, doesn't work.

Pretty much. He made a few plays when he could catch the damn thing. Bryant looks like the type that will rip your head off if you stand between him and the goal line.

I lost all hope in that prick when I heard Brad Sham say he was the only receiver that didn't take any warmup passes from Romo before the first Philly game last season.

I think crayton, hurd, et al are expendable (and Roy)... I like Dez (as a player) alot and I think that UDFA from Elon College has the track record to have a chance.
