    Dallas Cowboys' receiver has ceased working out with the team at Valley Ranch in hopes of being traded.

    According to ESPN, Crayton will attend mandatory workouts, but will skip voluntary ones as he and his agent, Fred Lyles, attempt to find a deal elsewhere. Crayton and Sam Hurd each, according to the report, requested to be traded last week, before the Cowboys traded up to land receiver Dez Bryant in the first round.

    Additionally, Crayton hopes to meet with owner and general manager Jerry Jones. Due to scheduling conflicts, though, that sit-down may not happen until next week.

    Crayton still has some real value for the Cowboys, as their best slot receiver and incumbent return man on punts. Last season, he had 37 catches for 622 yards and five touchdowns. Over 36 returns in 2009, he stacked up 437 yards and two touchdowns.
