    Crayton lit it up in PM.

    At one point Crayton was so hot that Parcells interupted to yell out a second time "CRAYTON, YOU ARE ON FIRE". Most animated I saw him all day over course of both practices. Parcells was pumped.

    Crayton deserved the praise. He caught 2 passes in a row in stride. He really is gobbling the ball up with those mitts of his. He looked like he did before injury last year and was making great cuts and seeming to run crisp routes. The passes were nicely on target for him each time. But he would have made 5 or 6 big yardage plays from PM session alone, and not just in one on one practice, but in full squads.

    Fans of Crayton and those worried about depth behind Glenn and TO would have loved to watch him. He looked good in AM, he looked great in PM practice. Didn't drop one pass and routinely beat guys. They are using him on lots of slants again. He's either catching across the middle or catching on sideline and cutting back inside into traffic.

    Crayton didn't field many punts today. A couple at end of PM practice.

    Green, Newman, and Rector were primary punt returners and each caught 4-5 balls without anyone dropping one. Green looked good on punts but was shaky as WR. He is getting yelled at a bunch by coaches and is struggling with playbook so far it seems. Looked real comfortable grabbing punts though.

    At least Green is getting that part he was brought in for. Really, how much time would he see as WR this year.

    Nice, parcells said he would likely use crayton to bring fasano off the field, so they could be somewhat interchangeable. crayton was pretty good at breaking tackles and YAC before getting hurt last year. he could do some damage running slants and working the middle. could be a big part of our 3rd down passing game.

    TO -- Crayton----------Witten -- Glen

    Crayton should get a lot of favorable matchups working underneath TO, with Witten working the deep middle and Glen startching the defense.

    Very good to hear. Crayton was one of my favorites last year and a sleeper that made big time catches when he as healthy. Hopefully he is a better reciever now than he was last year.

    This is really good news...

    Those big old catcher's mitt hands of Crayton's will hopefully come in handy this year...

    I think Crayton is going to be just fine this season. I've read where a lot of people seem think that he's not going to get many opportunities this year. I think there should still be plenty of chances though. I also think he'll take advatage of those chances now that he's healthy again.

    That's good news. I'm glad to hear he's fully recovered and better than ever.

    Crayton's the type of player that will take advantage of any opportunity, however seldom they may come.

    With all the talk of TO's ability to gain YAC, it's exciting, because that's also the reason Crayton is so fun to watch.

    2 TE is fun, but imagine TO at flanker, Crayton at slot, witten at TE and glen at split end.

    With jones in the backfield.

    Tell me there the weakness in that is, OL aside.
