Patrick Crayton finally got his wish.
The disgruntled wide out who had long complained about lack of playing time and being given a fair chance to see the field was traded Friday to the San Diego Chargers for a seventh round pick in the 2011 NFL draft.
The deal could possibly be upgraded to a sixth-round pick if Crayton catches 40 or more passes in 2010.
He averaged 38 receptions in each of his last two seasons.
Crayton had become vocal in recent months about his displeasure with the organization, especially after the Cowboys drafted Dez Bryant out of Oklahoma State with their first round selection in April.
Then, after Thursday's final preseason game against Miami, Crayton's agent, Fred Lyles, requested the team release his client.
Friday, Lyles and Crayton found themselves with a new team on the west coast.
Former Virginia wide receiver and undrafted free agent Kevin Ogletree figures to be the player who steps into Crayton's spot as the No. 4 receiver on the team.
Crayton caught 37 passes for 622 yards and five touchdowns last season in Dallas.
He ends his career with the Cowboys with 196 receptions for 2,888 yards and 23 scores.
Reserve offensive lineman Pat McQuistan was also traded Friday to the Miami Dophins.
The Cowboys received a sixth round pick from Miami for the former seventh-rounder.
McQuistan was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round out of Weber State in the 2006 NFL Draft.
