The agent for wide receiver Patrick Crayton will ask the Cowboys to release his client before the 5 p.m. deadline on Saturday to set the 53-man roster.
"It seems he doesn't figure in their plans so it's not logical to be on the roster until Saturday," Fred Lyles said. "We don't see the use in prolonging it."
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones would not go into specifics over the team's upcoming decision making, but Crayton's $2 million price tag appears to be too large for him to be kept as a No. 4 or 5 wide receiver.
