Rams ship Tavon Austin to Cowboys for 6th-round pick

Rams Trade Wide Receiver Tavon Austin to Cowboys for No. 192 Overall Pick

The Cowboys gave up a sixth-round pick in exchange for the speedy wideout.

Austin gets a fresh start in Dallas, which turned around and traded away fellow wide receiver Ryan Switzer not long thereafter. His role could grow in Dallas, as the Cowboys look to replace former star Dez Bryant.

Austin, drafted eighth overall in 2013, has made 194 catches for 1,689 yards and 12 touchdowns in his five-year National Football League career, but he is not expected to act as a direct replacement for the departed Dez Bryant out wide.

The compensation heading to Los Angeles is only a sixth-round selection, No. 192 overall.

Miami Dolphins draft Minkah Fitzpatrick: Instant grade and analysis
Former Valor Christian star Christian McCaffrey was picked in the first round previous year by the Carolina Panthers. Jerome Baker #17 of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Austin counted $14 million against the salary cap in 2017 when his production fell off to a career-low 13 catches for 47 yards, though he carried 59 times for a 4.6-yard average. Throughout his five years with the club, the West Virginia product was an integral part of the team's offense and special teams units.

Needless to say, there's not enough positives or proven track record that shows Austin is capable of flipping a switch and being a quality fantasy player in Dallas.

On Friday, Jerry Jones hinted at adding another receiver after selecting Michael Gallup in the third round.

Tavon Austin is finally on the move.
