The moment Patrick Crayton was asked about Dallas, a big smile appeared on his face.

"I'm definitely ready," the Chargers receiver said. "I can't wait until Wednesday."

Crayton played six years for the Cowboys and still lives near Dallas, where he grew up. Despite asking for his release twice in 2010, he has fond memories of his time with the Cowboys, an 82-game stint, before being traded to San Diego 10 days before the opener last year.

He'll get a chance to face them this weekend. The Chargers fly Wednesday to the Dallas area, where they'll practice with the Cowboys before playing them Sunday night.
