Cowboys trade Crayton to Chargers, acquire seventh-round pick

Patrick Crayton wanted out the minute the Dallas Cowboys drafted Dez Bryant. Crayton finally received his wish Friday, and it might have been worth the wait.

Crayton was dealt to the San Diego Chargers, where he'll be a bigger part of an offense and still play for a contender. The change in locales isn't bad either, although Crayton is leaving the area where he grew up.

The Cowboys received just a seventh-round draft pick in the trade, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora. The team likely figured it was better than cutting Crayton and receiving nothing, plus it puts him in the other conference.


The Cowboys kept Crayton all summer mainly because there wasn't any incentive to give in to his trade request. But as team officials discussed their 53-man roster, they apparently believed they couldn't justify keeping someone with Crayton's high salary ($2 million) in a reduced role (fourth receiver, backup punt returner).
