Agent: Crayton likes Cowboys but wants trade soon if it's their plan

Wide receiver Patrick Crayton wants to be a Cowboy, but if that feeling isn't mutual, he'd like to be traded soon, his agent told The Dallas Morning News on Saturday.

Fred Lyles confirmed with the Cowboys that they were shopping Crayton, The Morning News reported, and he was given permission to seek a trade. But Lyles said that isn't his client's wish.

"He really wants to be a part of the Dallas Cowboys, but he understands if he's not a part of this going forward," Lyles said of Crayton, who has missed voluntary workouts. "If he's not in their plans, if they do want to trade him, he's just asking that it be sooner rather than later."

The Cowboys used their first-round draft pick on Oklahoma State wideout Dez Bryant last week, and they also have Roy Williams, Sam Hurd and Kevin Ogletree in their receiving corps.

Crayton has spent his entire six-year NFL career in Dallas, with 196 receptions for 2,888 yards and 23 touchdowns. He returned two punts for touchdowns last season.
