The smoke signals coming from Valley Ranch indicate that Patrick Crayton’s fears could come true.
He might not be a Cowboy by Saturday night.
The Cowboys are exploring the trade market for Crayton. If they can’t make a deal, there’s a decent chance that they’ll cut a guy who is arguably their most reliable receiver.
In other words, the scenario he laid out on ESPN 103.3’s Ben and Skin Show while he was skipping voluntary workouts could become reality in a couple of days. That’s why he wanted to be released in the spring. He didn’t want to be job-hunting a week before the season opened.
The Cowboys are crazy if they get rid of Crayton now.
