Do the Kansas City Chiefs still need a third wide receiver? In house candidates favor Dexter McCluster or perhaps Jerheme Urban. But Gregg Rosenthal, a writer for Pro Football Talk, mentions the position specifically for the Kansas City Chiefs as a reason they might go after Patrick Crayton, the Cowboys oft-grumbling wide receiver.
Specifically, Rosenthal quotes his agent: "It seems he doesn't figure in their plans so it's not logical to be on the roster until Saturday," Crayton's agent Fred Lyles told the Dallas Morning News. "We don't see the use in prolonging it." Later, the Chiefs are noted when he says, "Crayton is one of the few players that will get dropped this week that can help another team right away. Kansas City, where Todd Haley could use a third receiver, makes a lot of sense."
The spotlight came to Todd Haley in Arizona where the third receiver certainly benefitted from his offense. In 2008, Steve Breaston had a 1,000 yard season alongside Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald. Of course, Bolding was out for four games that season, so the numbers were certainly bumped a bit there. Still, Urban had 448 yards that same season, displaying what Haley can do with a high-octane passing game. Then again, he had a possible Hall of Fame candidate under center.
But it seems we've already brought in the competition for McCluster for that spot with Urban. Unless the Chiefs brass have taken enough of a look at Urban to believe he cannot handle the position, then Crayton might be an option. But if the potential for Urban and McCluster to fill that spot exists on any level, then the Chiefs will likely have nothing to do with the Cowboys receiver. And if somehow, Crayton ends up in a Chiefs uniform, we'll most likely see Jerheme Urban wearing another set of colors as well.
