In what was clearly necessary to improve both the talent level and depth at the wide receiver position, the San Diego Chargers made a solid move by trading for veteran wideout Patrick Crayton, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys.
In exchange for Crayton, the Chargers sent Dallas a conditional draft pick that would at the very least become a 7th round selection.
Crayton was disgruntled in Dallas with the team drafting Dez Bryant in the first round, and with Crayton's role in the offense diminishing.
Without Vincent Jackson and with no undrafted free agents really separating themselves from the pack, the Chargers needed to bring in additional talent in order to accomplish the things they want to do on offense. Patrick Crayton should have an easy transition coming from Dallas where Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett was somewhat of a protege of Norv Turner, having played for him in his younger days.
Excited about joining a team that both needs him and should be contending in January, Crayton seemed overjoyed with the acquisition:
"I'm going from a contender to another contender," Crayton said. "It makes you that much more anxious to be a part of that and to get on the football field and play."
