The agent for wide receiver Patrick Crayton confirmed Sunday that his client will remain away from the Dallas Cowboys' organized team activities this week.

Crayton missed last week's OTAs but left open the possibility of coming back for this week's three-day session, which begins Monday.

However, Fred Lyles said in a text message Sunday night, "Crayton will not be attending the voluntary OTAs."

Crayton has requested a trade, but the Cowboys haven't found any serious takers for the backup receiver.

With Crayton out this week, younger receivers Kevin Ogletree, Manuel Johnson and Jesse Holley will have the opportunity for more reps.
