Receiver Patrick Crayton's agent Fred Lyles denies a report that his client has stopped participating in the team's offseason program in hopes of forcing a trade from the Cowboys.
Lyles acknowledged that Crayton was absent this week but he said it had nothing to do with any unhappiness with his role on the team.
Lyles said Crayton has always done some of his workouts on his own at the Michael Johnson center in McKinney. But he said he will be back at the Cowboys facility next week for the throwing sessions.
Lyles also wanted to clear up some things up about Crayton and his supposed request for a trade after the team selected wide receiver Dez Bryant in the first round.
He said Crayton asked to assist in finding himself a new home after he found out the Cowboys were shopping him.
"We found out they were shopping him and then only then did we request permission to assist them in getting a trade," Lyles said. "He is under contact. He plans to fullfull his contract. In no way is he holding out and trying to make a statement."
Lyles acknowledged that Crayton does want to meet with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to find out what "his role will be next season and get a clear understand what plans they have for him."
