Chargers acquire Patrick Crayton from the Cowboys

The Chargers acquired more depth to account for the absence of Vincent Jackson, acquiring Patrick Crayton from the Dallas Cowboys, in exchange for a 7th round pick.

Crayton, who was the odd man out in Dallas, thanks to the drafting of Dez Bryant, should provide depth for the Bolts, behind starters Malcolm Floyd and Legedu Naanee.

In 2009 Crayton had 37 receptions for 622 yards, to go with 5 TD's.  Crayton also has the ability to return punts, a skill that could come in handy, in case Darren Sproles goes down with an injury.

Kevin Says:  I like this move for the Bolts.  Crayton has some big play ability, and gives San Diego a veteran presence where it was desperately needed.  It will be interesting who the Chargers keep at receiver.  Floyd, Crayton, Naanee, and Buster Davis are locks, with Jeremy Williams, Josh Reed and Seyi Ajirotu could be on the outside looking in.
