Crayton welcomed back -- sort of

Patrick Crayton attended his first offseason voluntary workout today and obviously his teammates were happy to see him.

But that doesn't mean they didn't have little fun at his expense, particularly fellow wide receiver Roy Williams, who was asked if Crayton's presence added to the competitiveness of practice..

"I always compete with anybody on the team, especially Patrick," Williams said, "because number one, I’m better than him. Two, I’m younger than him. Three, I beat him at everything we do -- golf, play station, all those things. So me and him compete in everything."

Williams wasn't finished. Although he was born only two years and eight months after Crayton, 31, Williams paid tribute to Crayton's experience.

"He played with Tom Landry, so for him to come back, to be 61 years old and showing us young guys the ropes, it’s big for us," Williams said before turning slightly serious. "He came in, he’s slim and trim. He’s 205. he looks good and he came out there today and made plays for us."

The talking Williams is doing is in response to questions. And he adds a little humor. Big deal. If he was calling his own press conferences (Owens) and b****ing about no respect and not getting the ball enough, that would be different.

He needs to step it up on the field, but I don't care about his "talkin". If the press would stop asking him the same questions every day we wouldn't hear from him at all.

I think Crayton is right in his prime at 31. His tire tread has little wear. He doesn't have the wear on his body like a typical 31 year old NFL starting WO would have. He's prolly equivalent to a 25 year old NFL WO who's started the past 3 years or so. I say keep him, he's at least as good or better than that other talkative Cowboy WO--Ole' Roy. If ole Roy bombs again this upcoming season in the first couple of games, I say give ole Roy the boot and put Crayton in as the #2 WO alongside #1 Austin. I don't think the mid-season waiver wire is going to have any WO's on it who are as good as Crayton. Plus, when Bryant gets his bell rung returning punts--oh, and he will get his bell rung!--you can put Crayton back on punt return duty. Hate for Crayton to go to a bitter rival like the G-women or the beagles, or, God forbid, those dastardly D.C. DeadReds! He might be so mad that he would burn us bad like T.O. use to do!

Crayton is an important insurance policy that could be used to spell any receiver at any time. Nicce to have him in the OTAs to test the Cowboy's free-safeties to determine if they need Atogwe.

lol. why does Williams keep talking? Of all the receivers, he's the one that should be keeping his mouth shut. Miles Austin has the most to crow about, but you don't see him do it. He just smiles and makes game changing plays. I'm annoyed with "talkers." Shut your mouth Roy.

williams needs to sit the bench and watch crayton instead of running his mouth and maybe he could learn a few things.

IT WILL SHOW IN SITUATIONS IF WE GET RID OF CRAYTON. HE WAS ALWAYS FINDING A WAY TO GET OPEN. MAYBE NOT THE BEST RECIEVER WE HAVE BUT MAYBE THE SMARTEST UNDERSTANDING WHERE TO SIT AND GET OPEN IN CRITICAL TIMES.
