Dallas receiver Patrick Crayton, who has skipped organized team activities this offseason and expressed disappointment that he’ll be no better than the Cowboys’ No. 4 wideout, has decided to show up this week to voluntary workouts.
And Crayton’s agent told Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com that Crayton will accept whatever role he has on the Cowboys.
“Crayton is excited about the 2010 NFL season and accepts any decision[s] made by the Cowboys organization regarding his status with the team,” agent Fred Lyles wrote in a text message. “He’s looking to compete and we don’t want to be a distraction.”
That’s a more conciliatory note than Crayton sounded ten days ago, when he said he felt “betrayed” by the Cowboys and wanted to be released.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, however, said last week that he’s not thinking about cutting Crayton. Now Crayton and his agent sound like they’re trying to make the best of a situation that is not to their liking.
