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

Los Angeles gets something in return for someone they would have let go otherwise, and the Cowboys get wide receiver help after the departure of Dez Bryant.

As exciting as it was to see the Los Angeles Rams select all of their new rookies during the 2018 NFL Draft, one of the biggest surprises from the weekend was the team finally finding a trade partner for Tavon Austin.

Five-year veteran Tavon Austin will be packing his bags and heading east to Dallas as he officially traded by the Rams to those Boys, via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. After restructuring his contract, Austin will cost the Cowboys $5 million next season.

A first-round selection by the Rams in 2013, Austin played in 78 games for the franchise, starting in 50 of them.

Austin is coming off a season in Los Angeles in which he recorded just 13 catches for 47 total yards and zero touchdowns.

"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. Austin was a two-time First Team All-American for the Mountaineers, forming part of the core of a deadly West Virginia offense that featured future National Football League players Geno Smith and Stedman Bailey. For his career he's averaged a running back-like 8.7 yards per catch.

Dallas' current wide-receiving look on the depth chart isn't anything to write home about.
