Patrick Crayton WR NO 7 Months
Saints signed WR Patrick Crayton.
It's the first we've heard of Crayton since 2011, where he caught 23 passes in 14 games for the Chargers. Now 34, Crayton spent 2012 on the street. Crayton provides experience, but not much else at this stage of his career. It would be stunning if he earned a roster spot.

Patrick Crayton caught three passes for 37 yards with a touchdown in the Chargers' Week 14 win over the Bills.
Crayton was the clear No. 4 option in the passing game, seeing just three targets all day. On his 26-yard touchdown catch, he faked like he was going out of bounds and then broke three tackles on his way to the house. That won't happen against the Ravens next week.

Coach Norv Turner indicated that Patrick Crayton (ankle) will not be eased in to action in his 2011 debut this week.
With Malcom Floyd out, Crayton will "play a lot" against the Chiefs. If the Bolts get out to a big lead, as expected, they'll likely take the air out of the ball. Look elsewhere for a starter this week.

Coach Norv Turner hinted that Patrick Crayton will be active in Week 3 regardless of Malcom Floyd's (groin) status.
With Floyd in doubt for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, it's possible Crayton will see significant snaps. But he's not completely over the scope on his ankle and expectations should be kept very low. Crayton would rotate with the likes of Bryan Walters and Richard Goodman.

Patrick Crayton (ankle) participated in Chargers practice on Wednesday.
Crayton was held out of Week 1's win over the Vikings, but is trending toward being active against the Patriots on Sunday. However, he's unlikely to be at full health, and won't be a strong fantasy play even with the Chargers taking on a New England pass defense that allowed 416 yards to Chad Henne on Monday.
Patrick Crayton WR NO Sep 12 '11
The Chargers are "pushing" WR Patrick Crayton to play in Week 2 after he missed the opener with an ankle injury.
The plan is to have Crayton out on the practice field Wednesday, rather than ease him in on Thursday or Friday. Crayton is a solid slot receiver and helps Philip Rivers' cause, but he won't be a fantasy option next week at New England.
