Tavon Austin on trade to Cowboys: 'Lot of weight off my shoulders'

The Rams have traded wide receiver Tavon Austin to the Cowboys in exchange for a 2018 sixth-round draft pick.

On Friday, Jerry Jones hinted at adding another receiver after selecting Michael Gallup in the third round. He wasn't even promised a spot on the roster this upcoming season.

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.




"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. He tallied just 47 receiving yards on 13 receptions, while also providing 270 yards and a touchdown through the ground on a career high 59 carries.

The Cowboys have also been rumored to have worked out former change-of-pace back Lance Dunbar recently. The fifth-year playmaker is scheduled to make a whopping $5 million ($4 million paid by the Rams) this upcoming season, on a one-year deal. Austin will be yet another new face within a drastically different receiving unit for the Cowboys in 2018. He was a first-round pick in 2013 out of West Virginia.
