Crayton will attend Cowboys' OTAs, minicamp this week, agent says

Patrick Crayton's offseason of discontent took another turn Monday, when his agent told the *Fort Worth Star-Telegram* that the wide receiver will attend the Dallas Cowboys' voluntary organized team activities that begin Tuesday and the mandatory minicamp that runs from Friday through Sunday.

Crayton has missed the Cowboys' past three weeks of OTAs.

"He's just ready to go to work," Fred Lyles, Crayton's agent, told the newspaper. "He'll be there this week. He's going to let me and the Cowboys worry about how this thing is going to play out."

Last month, Crayton told a Dallas radio station that he wanted the Cowboys to release him immediately. That demand came three weeks after the receiver said he preferred to stay with the Cowboys. Crayton was upset after he discovered the team tried to trade him during the NFL Draft in April.

Crayton has played in 82 games, starting 32, for the Cowboys during the past six seasons. He had 37 receptions for 622 yards and a career-high five touchdowns in 2009.
