  Saints | Two WRs cut    Mon Aug 19, 05:20 PM

The New Orleans Saints released WRs Patrick Crayton and Steve Breaston Monday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Well that didn't last long. The Saints just added Breaston and Crayton earlier this month. Breaston's knee injuries may have caught up to him as he couldn't make a positive impression in camp. The Saints will roll with rookie Kenny Stills (Oklahoma) and second-year pro Nick Toon as the primary WRs behind Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

  Saints | Patrick Crayton signs    Mon Aug 12, 05:09 PM

The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent WR Patrick Crayton (Cowboys) to an undisclosed deal Monday, Aug. 12.

Footballguys view: Crayton was a street free agent last year and may not have much left in the tank. We'd be surprised if he even makes the final roster.

  Cowboys | Two WRs could be options in free agency    Wed May 9, 12:18 PM

The Dallas Cowboys could show interest in free-agent WRs Patrick Crayton (Chargers) and Jerheme Urban (Chiefs) if they decide to add a wide receiver in free agency.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys hope the third-string WR is currently on the roster. Guys like Kevin Ogletree, Danny Coale, and Dwayne Harris will compete for that spot in training camp. The Cowboys could look outside the roster if they want better veteran depth.

  Chargers | Patrick Crayton has five grabs in debut    Sun Sep 25, 09:14 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Patrick Crayton (ankle) made his regular season debut in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He tied a game-high with five receptions for 47 yards, seeing plenty of work with WR Malcom Floyd (groin) not quite 100 percent.

Footballguys view: Floyd was active, but Crayton was more prominent in the passing game. With Antonio Gates possibly unable to play his typical role this year, Crayton could have value in deep PPR leagues.

San Diego Chargers WRs Vincent Brown (hamstring) and Patrick Crayton (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 14.

  Chargers | Patrick Crayton on track for Week 1    Mon Sep 5, 11:14 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Patrick Crayton (ankle) said Monday, Sept. 5, that he is on track to play in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Crayton is currently the #3 receiver for the Chargers, so he has little value, but if Antonio Gates and Malcom Floyd have repeats of their 2010 injury-riddled seasons, Crayton will have value before the end of the season.

  Chargers | Decisions to make at wide receiver    Mon Aug 29, 03:53 AM

The San Diego Chargers have some tough decisions to make at wide receiver, where they plan to keep six players. WRs Vincent Jackson, Malcom Floyd, Patrick Crayton and rookie Vincent Brown are locks to make the team. Seyi Ajirotutu, Richard Goodman, Bryan Walters and Kelley Washington (knee) are competing for the final two spots, and each player has made a strong case to stick. Washington has missed the past two weeks and his injury could linger into the season, which could make him a roster casualty.

Footballguys view: Washington is a good special teams player, but his knee injury could cost him a roster spot. We feel Ajirotutu should make the team because of his upside as a developmental receiver.

  Chargers | Patrick Crayton, Kelley Washington remain out    Wed Aug 24, 12:49 AM

San Diego Chargers WRs Patrick Crayton (ankle) and Kelley Washington (knee) remain sidelined, and are likely gone until just before the start of the regular season.

  Chargers | Patrick Crayton to have arthroscopy    Tue Aug 23, 12:57 AM

San Diego Chargers WR Patrick Crayton (ankle) will have arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his ankle and will be out 10 to 14 days.

Footballguys view: Crayton should be back soon, but Seyi Ajirotutu and Vincent Brown are healthy enough to practice now, so they will get extended reps in Crayton's absence. That could endanger Crayton's job down the line if they show something.

  Chargers | Wildcat formation with Patrick Crayton in place    Mon Aug 8, 01:41 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Patrick Crayton ran the team's Wildcat formation during practice Sunday, Aug. 7.

  Chargers | Bryan Walters seeing punt return work    Mon Aug 8, 01:40 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Bryan Walters is seeing a lot of reps on punt returns during training camp and will do so during preseason games.

'I'm frustrated,' Crayton said. 'I've been anxious. I was part of a nice unit and a nice team, able to do my part. Sitting out you can't do your part.'

Footballguys view: Crayton is not quite ready to return to the field, and the Chargers may keep him shelved until they get to the postseason.
