Cowboys acquire WR Tavon Austin in deal with Rams

  • Tavon Austin

His scheduled cap hit for 2018 was $8 million, with $5 million in dead money to be incurred if he were traded or released.

#LARams have traded Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys. In this post-Dez Bryant world, Allen Hurns, Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, Deonte Thompson and third-round rookie Michael Gallup are the top names at the position.

"We have been evolving in the offseason, and that's when you want to do that rather than during the season, to be trite", Jones said. The gadget player goes from one of the most crowded receiver corps in the league to arguably the least. So if you look at your timelines, and look what's documented with what you have, you'll see that we've been just kind of letting this thing evolve and play out. He also recorded 1,238 rushing yards for nine touchdowns, and scored three punts returned for touchdowns. Austin has been an underachiever in five seasons out of West Virginia, but maybe a move to Jerry's World can recharge those batteries and lead to some fantasy value.


The investment for the Cowboys is minimal.

Still just 27 years old, Austin should be motivated to prove his struggles in Los Angeles were the product of his environment and not his skill set.
