The Dallas Morning News reports that WR Patrick Crayton is unsure if the team still wants him, after drafting Dez Bryant in April.
On draft night, Crayton's agent learned that the Cowboys were shopping him around, and then received permission from the club to look for a trade. In the time since, Crayton has been absent from organized team activities, though he does plan to attend the mandatory minicamp that begins June 11.
"If it's a true open competition, I'll be with the Dallas Cowboys in 2010," Crayton told the Dallas Morning News of the suddenly crowded WR situation in Dallas.
"If not, and things have already been assigned, then I'll probably be elsewhere."
Crayton added that he doesn't know if the Cowboys want him on their roster anymore.
"All I've known is a star on my helmet," Crayton said. "It's definitely tough not knowing if the team wants you or not. But it's the nature of the business."

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the new ownership of the Rams franchise, along with the troubled state of the team itself, has a lot of wild rumors swirling about possible changes on the horizon.
One of the hottes rumors, according to the report, is that the Rams may trade their No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for QB Josh Johnson and a combination of draft picks in the first, second or third rounds.
One such scenario would only bump the Rams down to the No. 3 pick, which would be a relatively small price to pay if their most coveted draft prospect isn't expected to be drafted first or second overall.
Another rumor the story mentions is the possibility of stealing QB Michael Vick away from Philadelphia.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News , the Eagles are publicly putting forth the attitude that QB Donovan McNabb -- scheduled to rake in an estimated $11 million next season -- will remain with the team.
There has been no official indication from the Eagles that they are looking to unload McNabb or his backup QBs, Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick . All three would be in the final year of their contract if they remained with the Eagles for the 2010 season. However, the Eagles also have reportedly confirmed that other teams have inquired about all three QBs.
The story notes that there is a strong chance that Vick (who would make $5 million this year) will be traded before the NFL Draft in April. McNabb remains a question mark as well, but for now, the official stance is that he's staying in Philly.
When asked recently about locker room leadership in the wake of Brian Westbrook's release, head coach Andy Reid acted as though McNabb's status was a given.
"Well, Donovan is obviously here," he replied, according to the Daily News.
