Trade rumors surrounding Cowboys wide receiver Patrick Crayton have heated up once again.  ESPN is reporting that even if the Cowboys don’t trade him by Saturday, there is a solid chance they will simply release him.
To me, cutting Crayton would be the team’s biggest blunder of the season.  Here are my top five reasons the ‘Boys need to keep Crayton:
1.  The odds of Bryant, Roy Williams, and Miles Austin all staying healthy throughout the season are slim. 
That trio is nice, but let’s not forget the team would be one injury away from having Kevin Ogletree on the field quite often.  Ogletree has shown a lot of promise, but he’s not ready to be a No. 3 receiver just yet. 
An injury would also likely force the Cowboys to use more two-tight end sets, something they might be hesitant to do since they may only keep two tight ends.

2.  Bryant isn’t ready to fully contribute just yet.
