Austin traded to Cowboys

Austin traded to Cowboys

The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the most active teams on the trade market all offseason, and that continued through the NFL Draft.

Austin was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 National Football League draft. Austin likely would have been a cap-casualty and would not make the 53-man roster for the Rams in the upcoming season.

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.

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

In 2017, Austin turned just 22 targets into 13 catches, 47 yards and 0 receiving touchdowns. Throughout his five years with the club, the West Virginia product was an integral part of the team's offense and special teams units. He's also contributed with 1,238 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground.

"I'm just the type of guy who wants the ball in my hands any type of way", Austin told ESPN.com's Alden Gonzalez in June. Dallas figures to be an advantageous situation of him, as nothing is set in stone with the receiving depth chart at this point.

The Dallas Cowboys added another wide receiver on the third day of the draft, but not by selecting him.

Tavon Austin now officially joins that group.
