In a surprising move, the Cowboys have just completed a couple of trades.
First, the Cowboys and Chargers agreed to a deal which sends wide receiver Patrick Crayton to the Chargers for a seventh round pick in 2011.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the Chargers are in a contract dispute with wide receiver Vincent Jackson , who has threatened to sit out the season, and wanted an experienced wide-out which they certainly get in Crayton.
A seventh round pick in 2004, Crayton caught 196 passes for 2,888 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Cowboys. His best year came in 2007 in which he caught 50 passes for 697 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 starts. He also averaged 9.6 yards per punt return and had two touchdowns last season.
Then in another move, the Miami Dolphins acquired offensive tackle Pat McQuistan from Dallas.
It is still uncertain what the Cowboys got in return, but the trade has been confirmed. It could end up being another late round pick as they got for Crayton.
Looks like it was a busy day for the Jones’ gang.
