WR Crayton Feels Betrayed By Cowboys and Wants Release

So it looks like subpar Cowboys wide receiver Patrick Crayton is unhappy with the franchise, and is now asking for his release.  He is adamantly expressing that the way the he’s been treated in the offseason has been disappointing, and that as a result he would like to go elsewhere – where he will be appreciated.

Clayton has voiced that the Cowboys attempts to trade him are where these ill feelings toward the franchise stem from.

ESPN reports:

“It was behind my back,” Crayton said of the Cowboys trying to trade him, per Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “I just felt kind of betrayed in a way. But that’s the business.”

Crayton said he’d like to be released immediately because the Cowboys are “messing with people’s careers and people’s lives.”

Crayton said that he’d be happy to stay in Dallas if there were going to be an open competition for playing time. But he thinks the deck is stacked against him and that Miles Austin, Roy Williams and Dez Bryant will all be ahead of him on the depth chart no matter how hard he works.

As a result, Crayton says his agent Fred Lyles has repeatedly told the Cowboys to cut him. But the Cowboys won’t do it.

“He has definitely expressed that, but they’re not going to do that,” Crayton said. “I’m the insurance guy.”

Ultimately, “insurance guy” is probably the right description of Crayton: He’ll probably stick around through training camp in case Austin, Williams, or Bryant gets hurt, and then get cut before the regular season if all three are healthy. Crayton doesn’t like that.

“If I’m going to be with another team, I need to get used to another city, another franchise, a new coach, a new quarterback, a new coordinator, everything,” Crayton said. “Just a whole new environment. My wife and kids got to get settled in, got to get in schools and everything. I would love to have the opportunity to compete with another team versus come here and come here for a numbers thing where they’re like, ‘Oh, we’re not going to pay you that to be our fourth or fifth guy,’ or whatever the situation is and you kept me the whole training camp because you need camp bodies.”

Umm…Can someone please tell me why Crayton is talking like he is a 1,000 yard, 10 touchdown receiver?  If players let their play do the talking, Crayton’s play would say, “Coach, please bench me.”  Dude needs to play ball, shut up, and stop worrying about who the Cowboys draft and what spot he is on the depth chart.  Crayton had his chance to be the man, and correct me if I’m mistaken, but wasn’t Miles Austin deeper down the depth chart at one point?  Miles let his play and numbers speak for themselves, and Crayton needs to do the same.

Secondly, no one did anything behind Crayton’s back.  Was it not he and Sam Hurd that requested trades after Dez Bryant got drafted?  SMH…no one is trying to hear your nonsense after you were wide open on 3rd-and-14, and you decided to forget how to catch and cost the Cowboys a TD in the playoffs against the Giants.

The high point of Crayton’s career was when fielded 6 punts at the same time on HBO’s Hard Knocks…and it was a wrap after that.  Step Your Game Up Pat!!
