Former West Virginia WR Tavon Austin traded to Dallas Cowboys

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

The Rams dealt five-year veteran receiver Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a sixth-round pick Sunday.

Following Saturday's trade, Austin should find himself in more comfortable surroundings as he seeks to evolve into a consistent threat-no matter how he receives his touches.

Since being selected as the 8th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Austin has accumulated 1,689 receiving yards, 1,238 rushing yards, 12 receiving touchdowns, 9 rushing touchdowns and 3 punt return touchdowns.

Are the Dallas Cowboys any closer to replacing Dez Bryant?

From adding depth to the offensive line with players Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen to from filling needs at linebacker with Micah Kiser, Los Angeles has plenty of reasons to be thrilled with their selections from this year's draft.

Austin had 59 carries for 270 yards last season.

A former first round pick has been traded. He's also contributed with 1,238 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

The Dallas Cowboys had a overflowing wide receiver group prior to drafting Colorado's Michael Gallup in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Friday night.

Austin, 27, is a short-statured shifty wideout who best operates out of the slot within a spread-type offense-obviously, this caters more to the collegiate world.

Tavon Austin now officially joins that group.
